STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

V.D.P.

THE CHALLENGE

Throughout the years, Magaldi has aimed at earning an important reputation in the valuable Italian North-East foundry market. The foundry was looking for a conveyor that could fulfil the various plant and process requirements: to perform sprue removal and casting sorting activities, to empty the casting batches to be loaded into the continuous shot-blasting machine.
In 2000, during the XXV congress of Assofond, the Italian Foundry Association, Magaldi was awarded this important recognition by the foundry.

 

THE CUSTOMER

For 3 generations, VDP has been deeply involved in developing new foundry processes for iron castings. They have acquired a remarkable technological know-how in producing innovative castings: as their motto says “A VDP casting is far more than a production process”.

 

THE SOLUTION

The Magaldi technology accomplished all the requirements set by the foundry, thanks to the Magaldi Superbelt® designed with a horizontal 4 meters’ frame, followed by a second frame with an inclination of up to 25°.
This type of steel conveyor belt allows the removal of the sprues with hydraulic wedges directly onto the belt from both sides, and moves the big castings forwards.
