STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Brook Hansen

THE CHALLENGE

In 1996, under the Brook Hansen management, the foundry decided to increase the production by installing a new "resin sand" semi-automatic molding line. After the shake-out, the castings - still hot - were placed in boxes and taken outside by a forklift to be re-taken inside within a few days for the sprue-removal operations.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Founded in 1939, after several corporate changes, the French foundry is specialized in designing complete solutions for high-quality power transmission.

 

THE SOLUTION

In order to simplify and optimize the production activities, Magaldi provided a Superbelt® conveyor to perform three operations on the same belt:

The conveyor, 32 meters long and 1,400 mm wide, is still fully operational with over 50,000 working hours, storage, cooling and sprue removal of approximately 220,000 tons of cast iron and an energy consumption of less than 900 € in 20 years, thanks to a power demand of only 0,198 kW.
Once again, the Magaldi Superbelt® conveyor has confirmed its extreme reliability in handling bulk, abrasive and heavy materials.
