The setup of two hinged steel belt conveyors T160 with reinforced welded construction for a stamping facility consisting of several presses from 250-500 tonnes.  For accuracy the belt’s links are robotic welded. (see picture)

The collecting conveyor is over 60 m long and the second conveyor- the discharge conveyor- runs over the span of 24 m with 7 meters of superelevation.

The discharge conveyor transports the metal scrap into a rotary discharge chute. This in turn is regulated with the Siemens control system.
Both conveyors are fitted with safety switches and automatic lubrication systems.  In order to efficiently monitor and control the optimal level of scrap in the containers, the discharge chute is equipped with sensors. These activate the change of the position of the chute, after the containers are filled.

Automatic line will be assembled during the month of October in subsidiary of a significant German supplier for automotive industry.

Currently it is the first stage of the conveyor line.  The second stage is planned for the year 2017

Based on specific inquiry form high profile stamping plant in Germany, we have drawn and manufactured a robust, telescopic belt conveyor with the measurements as follows: width of the belt 2 m, length 5 m and telescopic extension 1.5 m. All motor drives are conveniently coupled by Schmit coupling, which enables the regulation through frequency converter. The conveyor is interconnected with the control system of the stamping plant and so all the movements of the conveyor are directly determined. This poses great demand on kinematics of the conveyor.  The shift in the height on both sides, follows the alteration of length through telescopic extension.  The speed of the belt is in cycle 60m/ min.

For Czech’s leading manufacturer of grinding machinery, we have fabricated the protective housing for special series of grinding machines. On the drawing and construction of highly modern, ergonomic machine housing have participated external designers. The resulting combination of  colour scheme and shapes is very stylish and innovative. This suits exactly the requirements of FERMAT Machine Tool a.s. for their ultimate grinding machine BHCR85/4000 CNC

Astos Machinery has been the overall winner of the European selection procedure for the supply of the scrap metal conveyor system for the progressive stamping press. We turned into an exclusive supplier of the system for the new Toyota stamping plant thanks to great deal of experience.

To be linked with Toyota as its exclusive supplier of the system for the new stamping plant we had to proof to be a worthy partner by providing affirmation of our long term experience and references of excellence by our previous customers.

With a reputation for durability and reliability of its products Astos Machinery has been approached by a German company from automotive Industry, for designing and fabrication of an integrated conveyor system for two industrial power presses Schuler.

One of the favoured products with our customers is coolant filtration plant which combines a band filter with a tank. Optionally is the plant fitted with the magnetic separator for filtering and recovery of a valuable coolant liquid or cutting fluid from tool machining. We offer the filtration stations which eliminate the impurities with fineness up to 35 microns. As an innovation we have launched the new type of filtration station-Drum Filter plant. (more…)
