Read about this foundry that depended on their General Kinematics conveyor to provide the performance and reliability they needed to keep their facility running.


“Atlas Foundry Co., an established supplier of high quality grey iron castings for over 120 years, was in need of a mold dump transfer conveyor at their Marion, IN facility.  They have successfully re-purposed a GKC conveyor which was designed for aluminum scrap handling.  The original capacity of the conveyor was 3 to 5 tons per hour of aluminum segments, transferring up an incline of 7 degrees.  Now lowered to a more modest incline of approximately 2 degrees, the unit has been re-purposed to transfer approximately 80 tons per hour of hot sand and castings from two automated molding lines…”

The unit (pictured here) is running strong and has proven to be a dependable part of this foundry’s production process.

“…Handling greater capacities and temperatures than was first intended, the conveyor is providing reliable service.  Atlas has depended upon this machine for the past two years, and is pleased with its overall performance.”
