Recognizing the need for a reliable and robust conveyor system, the customer turned to Magaldi Power SpA for a customized solution that can withstand the powerful manipulator used for degating the casting after the shot-blasting process. The conveyor efficiently handles a throughput of approximately 30 tons per hour of castings, with each casting weighing up to 240 kg.
One of the key features of the Superbelt® conveyor is its focus on operator safety. The slow and gentle movement of the belt, coupled with the absence of vibrations, significantly reduces the risk of accidents related to vibrations. Additionally, the conveyor operates with a noise level below 75 dB(A), reducing the overall background noise within the facility for a quieter working environment for operators.
The Superbelt® conveyor also addresses the issue of crystalline silica dust emissions, which is a common concern in foundry operations. By eliminating vibrations and operating smoothly, the conveyor helps control dust generation, ensuring a healthier and safer workplace.
In addition to safety enhancements, the conveyor’s unique design allows for efficient casting sorting. Four operators can perform sorting tasks with ease and in complete safety, thanks to the conveyor’s ergonomic design.
Furthermore, the conveyor has been prepared to accommodate an unloading chute, which will enable the recovery of blast media, thus improving efficiency and cost-effectiveness in the foundry’s operations.
Hence, by choosing the Magaldi Superbelt® conveyor, Fonderie De Riccardis has taken a proactive step towards improving the working environment for its operators while enhancing productivity in the casting degating and sorting process.
