East Troy, Wisconsin – Wisconsin Oven supplied a carousel conveyor oven for curing urethane in moulds to an unidentified “leading” automotive supplier.
The natural gas-fired oven has a maximum operating temperature rating of 275°C, and a 76cm-wide carousel conveying system with a 3m wide load–unload area.
The carousel can support 1,500lb (680kg) and has an adjustable rotation speed of 2–10 revolutions per hour. Each oven entrance has a powered air seal curtain to reduce heat loss. A recirculation system uses horizontal airflow to optimise heating of the moulds as they travel through the oven.
“The carousel design creates an efficient load and unload process,” said senior applications engineer Gene Vetter.
