A Wire Mesh Conveyor Solution for Shot Blast Fastener Processing
At Hoosier Conveyor Company, we take pride in our ability to design and integrate custom conveyor systems that are tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients.
In a recent project we were tasked with creating a custom solution for a client in the automotive industry. It involved moving shot blast fasteners of varying sizes from a tumbler, through an oil coating, into totes, onto a weight scale, and to packaging.
When designing the solution, the environment was the key factor. The messy nature of the oils used to coat the fasteners would quickly deteriorate a standard belt, and cause jamming and issues with the functionality of a standard conveyor. Instead, we designed a custom wire mesh conveyor solution with drip trays and a return pump.
Solution: Custom Wire Mesh Conveyor System
Several factors were considered in the design process to ensure optimal performance and overall longevity of this system.
The conveyor system was designed to operate at speeds of 20-30 feet per minute. The conveyor provided an automation solution to increase production while accommodating the environmental factors.
We have the experience and expertise to design custom conveyor systems that can handle a wide range of products and environments. Contact us today to learn more about our capabilities and how we can help improve your industrial processes.
