Vibratory Conveyors for Foundry Applications

general-kinematics-vibratory-conveyor-for-foundry

Conveyors designed for anything you can throw at them.

Are you going to push a glowing red casting onto a rubber belt? No. How about hot flowing sand onto an apron or metal belt conveyor? Only if you like to sweep. Only one technology meets the demanding environment of a hot and abrasive foundry, and that is vibratory conveyors from General Kinematics.

More Than Just Conveying

Versatile vibratory conveyors from General Kinematics do more than just move materials. The inherent motion of continuously tossing and throwing material forward creates the opportunity to perform one or more processes along the way. Depending upon your application, conveyors can be engineered and constructed with custom trough designs to handle hot, heavy, and/or abrasive materials in the foundry, including sand, sprue, castings, and dross. Conveyors can be constructed using a variety of materials, including mild or abrasion resistant steel, stainless steel, or special alloys. Special patterns, perforations, and trough thickness can also be specified to meet your application needs.

GK Vibratory Conveyor Benefits:

SUPER-DUTY DESIGN The super duty design of GK vibratory conveyors allows them to excel in foundry applications with very little maintenance and downtime. Should something need replacing, parts are easy to replace and available from GK’s Parts team.

EFFICIENT DRIVE SYSTEM Conveyors with GK’s SYNCRO-CUSHION™ coil spring drive require less horsepower to start the machine. Less horsepower required means a smaller motor, and a smaller motor means less electrical consumption and more energy savings.

MINIMAL ENERGY USE GK Conveyors are designed using the principle of natural frequency. This design technique uses the harmonics of the machine to store and release energy through the spring system. That means, once the machine is running, it requires almost no energy to operate.
