This research paper attempts to describe a PLC based Control System for Hardening and Tempering Furnace in Heat Treatment Plant as implemented at the Siddheshwar unit for Mahindra Automobiles Limited, which is one of India’s largest vehicle manufacturing corporation. The proposed system deals with designing of a PLC based control system for Hardening and Tempering Furnace. The automated process efficiently reduces the man power required for the process and also increases the efficiency of hardening and tempering process of raw steel bits. This paper provides the description of the components implemented for the control system along with the flow of working of various required components. The system is controlled with the help of Messung PLC.
