Wisconsin Oven Ships Conveyor Oven to the Automotive Industry
Wisconsin Oven is pleased to announce the shipment of one (1) gas-fired chain conveyor oven to a manufacturer in the automotive industry. This oven will be used for tempering automotive transmission shafts.
The tempering oven has a maximum temperature rating of 392°F and chamber dimensions of 4’ W x 27’ L x 2’6 H. The oven is designed with three (3) heating zones, to meet a production rate of 450 parts per hour. The recirculation system provides 50,250 total CFM and utilizes top-down airflow to optimize airflow efficiencies and temperature uniformity.
The conveyor system is a continuous chain style that features laser-cut fixtures attached to the chain to hold parts vertically as they are moved through the oven. The conveyor oven is manufactured with 4” panels and heavy-duty construction to handle heavy load weights.
“Our team at Wisconsin Oven works closely with customers to provide custom solutions for their unique challenges. For this project we designed laser-cut fixtures to carry the customer’s parts vertically through the conveyor oven. This method of transferring parts through the oven allows for a very high production rate in a small footprint.”
