Forging Operation Conveyor System

Blank on forging conveyor operation

Lauyans’ client manufactures forging furnaces for various processes.

In this project, their client needs a conveyor system to convey stock lengths of steel bar, from 17.68” to 19.76” in diameter to a saw where it is cut into lengths. The length of the blanks range from 28.64” to 63.1”. The finished blanks weigh up to 4460 pounds.

Then, they’re heated to 2300 degrees. And conveyed through a forge.

Watch the video to see how Lauyans did this.
