Mold Dump Conveying
Magaldi Superbelt®

The The Magaldi Superbelt® is a steel belt made of partially overlapping steel pans bolted onto a steel double-wire mesh, that forms a virtually sealed belt conveyor.
The patented method of connecting the pans to the mesh belt leaves all elements free to thermally expand in any direction without permanent deformation. As a result, the Superbelt® withstands temperatures higher than any other known conveyor. Its design is based on a multi-link concept.
Even if the double-wire mesh is severely damaged, the conveyor continues to run without sudden failures and the plant operators can schedule its maintenance according to operation needs. Moreover, the steel belt is supported by carrying idlers across its entire width in order to withstand heavy mechanical loads. Next to the loading points, idlers can be closely spaced or mounted onto a shock absorber frame.
The Superbelt® conveys materials very slowly without any vibration or shaking, thus no dust is released externally and noise is at minimum levels. This contributes to a healthy and more comfortable working environment for plant operators.

In the foundry sector, the Magaldi Superbelt® “P Type” - horizontal or inclined up to 35° - is applied to handle big molds coming from the punch-out machines.
The main advantages of the Magaldi Superbelt® as applied to mold dump transportation are: 

  • contrarily to conventional vibrating technologies, the Superbelt® does not generate or disperse any dust to the environment, thus effectively contributing to reducing the crystalline silica problem in foundries;
  • the Superbelt® is completely enclosed in a steel casing and equipped with a cleaning device on the bottom to recover any sticky sand;
  • installed directly at the punch-out machines, the Superbelt® is capable of steep inclinations thus reducing its overall footprint and related capex;
  • noise and power demand are at minimum levels compared to alternative solutions.
