Conveyor Ovens offer a variety of conveyance configurations.
Conveyor Ovens can be used for a wide variety of heat processes including drying, curing, aging, annealing, stress relieving, bonding, tempering, preheating and forming. In either a horizontal or vertical configuration, the Conveyor Oven offers the ability to handle high production rates. Loading product(s) into the Conveyor Oven can be manual or automated.
Belt Conveyance Systems horizontally convey the parts through the oven on a conveyor belt. A Belt Style Conveyor typically interfaces with a processing line. The oven conveyor belt is set to the line pass height and speed (continuous or indexing).
Overhead Conveyance Systems feature an I-beam, enclosed track, or power and free conveyor where the part(s) are typically hung from a carrier or rack and travel through the oven in a continuous or indexing mode.
Chain Conveyance Systems convey the product through the oven, in a horizontal or vertical configuration, where the parts or carriers are transported on a single strand or multiple strands of engineered chain.
Powered Roller Conveyance Systems convey the product or pallets horizontally through the oven on powered rollers in a continuous or indexing mode.
Walking Beam Conveyance Systems are typically used in indexing type applications where product spacing is critical or where environmental conditions preclude other conveyance styles. Bearings, drive components, and position sensors are located outside the oven.
Pusher Conveyance Systems feature an internal or external pusher mechanism that indexes the parts through the heat processing chamber. Pusher Conveyance Systems use rollers, low friction rails, or slide beds to support the product through the oven.
Each Industrial Oven project undergoes a comprehensive evaluation of every production requirement. The assessment includes areas such as production goals, part configuration and construction, part mass, temperature profile, and facility location or elevation.
