STEEL BELT CONVEYORS FOR SEVERE CONDITIONS since 1929

Zanardi Fonderie

THE CHALLENGE

In 2000, Magaldi was called upon to provide a sustainable solution - in terms of plant engineering, process, safety, reliability and environmental protection –to face the burdensome problems in the Zanardi Foundry. Following the modernization of the molding line, the vibrating conveyor encountered a lot of problems downstream the punch out despite the fact that the Supplier had installed heaters to keep the walls warm.
The apron conveyor, loaded by a vibrating conveyor, dropped green sand along the way and the manipulator, used to crumble the molds before entering the cooling drums placed more than 6 meters high, deformed the rolling shutters.

 

THE CUSTOMER

Zanardi Fonderie S.p.A. is a family firm that has now reached its fourth generation, producing ductile iron and ADI castings formed in green sand. Production, including mechanical machining and high-tech heat treatment, is all performed in the Company’s only factory in Minerbe (Verona) in a positive, challenging and collaborative work environment.

 

THE SOLUTION

In 2000, Magaldi supplied a Superbelt® conveyor (mod. PD/MN.1408.308) made of ≥400HB manganese steel. With the first horizontal section - 10 meters long and reinforced to absorb the shock of 220 molds/hour>1,000kg falling on the belt from a height of over1,500 mm and the manipulator shots - and the second section inclined at 25°, the conveyor is able to download into the digger drum directly.
The system is completed by a Magaldi Spill Chain placed in the lower part of the conveyor along its sloping section and by a motorized brush at the head drum capable of collecting any sand that may detach from the belt plates.

Within the Magaldi offer, the above Superbelt® conveyor is the most visited and appreciated by Clients from all over the world.
