Since 1969, FOEN® has been a reliable partner in the steel industry worldwide supplying wiping equipment and bath rolls on continuous hot-dip strip coating lines. From the beginning, FOEN® hot-dip galvanizing equipment was designed to reach the highest standard requirements of the automotive industry. The progressive technology is based on continuous research and development.

As a result of the ongoing contact with our customers, FOEN® has developed new components enabling extended production campaigns with a superior coating quality. A strip correction system was designed to reduce vibrations in the process section. The FOEN DEMCO® (Dynamic Electro Magnetic Coating Optimizer) is characterized by its compact size, high force application and very fast control times.

FOEN® now also offers a cost-effective and energy-saving system for the treatment of process water, especially in the metallurgical industry: the FOEN-EVAP® system. The heart of the equipment is an evaporator that is based on the Mechanical Vapor Recompression principle. Unlike conventional evaporators with metallic heat exchangers, the FOEN-EVAP® system uses a patented polymeric heat exchanger. This technology has many benefits. The equipment is designed to fit into standard containers for easy transportation and installation on-site. The treatment capacity can be increased at any time by adding further modules.

About us

Company details

Fontaine Engineering und Maschinen GmbH (FOEN®) is the world leading supplier for air knives and bath roll equipment for continuous hot-dip coating lines.

The company was founded in 1969 by Paul Fontaine († 1998), a French engineer who had a wide range of experience in the galvanizing industry. Today, one of Paul’s sons, Pascal Fontaine, is the president of the company.

The headquarters of the company is located in Langenfeld, Germany. In 1991, a subsidiary was founded in Bridgeport, West Virginia, to serve customers in North America. In order to reach the Chinese market, a branch office was opened in Wuhan in 1996.

The first FOEN® air knives were delivered in 1973. Over the next several decades, more than 151 units were supplied worldwide to leaders in the steel industry. More than 78 of them have been designed for the production of exposed automotive parts. The oldest FOEN® air knife that is still in operation was built in 1981.

FOEN® now also offers a cost-effective and energy-saving system for the treatment of process water, especially in the metallurgical industry: the FOEN-EVAP® system.
