Forging and foundry operations typically operate with conditions of extremely high temperature making it a challenging environment. The design of conveyors used in forging and foundry facilities depends on the treatment of materials that are being conveyed or transported. With extreme temperatures, often hot, and large payloads, Power Pack conveyors reduce the need for manual processes thereby reducing the risk of injuries.
- Conveyors used in foundries are designed to keep materials and parts safely contained on the belt which helps avoid dangers to workers, including fires and other safety concerns.
- The correct belt type is important to provide efficiency, durability, and reliability.
- Forging conveyors are built to withstand the harsh demands using heavy-duty, abrasion-resistant construction materials, high-quality welds, belt reinforcements and impact plates, auto lube systems, and overload protection.
- Multiple conveyors can be used in these challenging environmental conditions depending on the path the parts are being traveling. The parts could potentially be transported horizontally, vertically, on an incline, or a combination of the three.
Power Pack conveyors are designed to be safe, efficient, durable, and reliable. The demands involved in forging and foundry application are the primary factor in the design of these types of systems to ensure the conveyor lasts many years.
