Mesh Conveyors

Mesh may be a straight forward horizontal process conveyor or a substantial 7T catenary quench belt in stainless steel to handle 1.5T of forgings dropped into quench at 1200°C.

Pharmaceutical capsule washing and heated tunnels for various processes operate as simple stand alone units. Other more complex systems include this coating system for SKF which includes a mesh belt that carries taper roller bearing cup & cones through a bath of molten molybdenum disulphide before a barrelling system.

Multi-Strand Conveyors

prodauto prodauto prodauto

These conveyors solved various problems: prior to these innovative units large, heavy  flat bed belt conveyors had to be positioned by fork truck between the presses and moved whenever a tool change was needed. Also there was nowhere to store the old conveyors. They also damaged the pressings especially aluminium ones with rubbish being carried by the belts which became pressed into the skins.

The new conveyors could be interlinked to form any length of conveying surface required. They can be electronically interlinked with a stop facility at the take of point

They can also be folded up  and pushed about by one man

The extended length is about 3M and the closed length about 1M

The running urethane surface does not damage the pressings and sheds and debris carried through
