Hot Forging Conveyors
Mayfran’s hot forging conveyors are designed to move parts that can reach temperatures between 400° and 2,200° F during the hot forging process. The conveyors, which receive parts from either forging presses or another conveyor, are available in various belt configurations and in either open- or closed-frame construction. Mayfran offers its hinged steel-belt hot forging conveyors in pitches of 2.5″, 4″, 6″ or 9″, depending on load and temperature specifications. Mayfran also offers 9″ pitch Z-Pan conveyors according to your specific needs.
The hot forging conveyors are also equipped with a reinforced belt-top plate, with reinforcements welded across the top surface of each pitch. It also has welded 1/4″-thick wear-resistant bars on the belt carrying and return tracks on closed-panel frames. On open frames, it is equipped with ASCE rails on belt carrying tracks and 3/8″-thick wear resistant bars on return tracks.
Mayfran’s hot forging conveyors also come with several application-specific options, including:
- Double-strand chains
- Impact shoes and load bars
- Hardened pins
- Steel hardened rollers
- Stainless steel belting, pins, hinge sleeves and steel bushings
- Variable speed drives
The hot forging conveyors are energy efficient and optimized for scrap loads. They are easy to maintain and install and offer safety measures to protect workers. Our application engineers can work with you to develop your specifications for your particular application.
