Model FL3600 Furnace Loader

The Model FL3600 Furnace Loader provides an automated method for loading pre-assembled parts onto a sinter furnace belt.

 

How does it work?

Parts placed onto sinter plates are introduced to the FL3600 infeed conveyor. The infeed conveyor indexes one position for every part/plate assembly introduced. This process repeats until a full row of parts and plates is created. Next, an electric pusher positively transfers the entire row onto the sinter belt. The FL3600 repeats this process, loading row after row of assembled parts/plates onto the sinter belt.
