STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Fonderie di Montorso

THE CHALLENGE

In 2014, to correctly load the new improved continuous shot-blasting machine, it was necessary to install a conveyor to perform the sprue removal and casting sorting operations, guaranteeing the highest level of safety, no vibrations to the operators and a noise level below the limit of 80dB(A).
This key task of the foundry followed the ongoing renewal process adopted by the plant; Magaldi was considered fully experienced to accomplish it.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Founded in 1962, Fonderie di Montorso produces high quality iron castings.

In 2010, the foundry began a total renewal process involving facilities, installations and machineries. Employees and consultants completely agreed with the new Company vision, aimed at increasing the sector’s working standards, forming a new Company model ready to accept new opportunities and win the upcoming challenges, and following its motto: “being, producing, safeguarding”.

 

THE SOLUTION

The Magaldi technology, by means of the the Magaldi Superbelt® conveyor (provided with turn-down sidewalls), fulfilled all the requirements specified by Fonderie di Montorso.
In fact, this type of steel conveyor belt offers an easy and safe casting sorting operation, using lateral chutes to move the castings away from the belt.
The sprue removal is carried out by hydraulic wedges, operating directly onto the belt.
