Tapered infeed hinged steel belt conveyor for waste removal in cold heading operations
The New London Engineering Model 727 Tapered Infeed – Cold Header Conveyor is versatile for cold heading, dies, machining, presses and parts handling operations. The specialty cold heading process uses high speed automated “cold-headers” or “part formers.” This equipment has the ability of transforming a wire into an intricately shaped part with tight and repetitive tolerances using a tooling progression at speeds up to 400 pieces per minute. The cold heading process is volume specific and the process uses dies and punches to convert a specific “slug” or blank of a given volume into a finished intricately shaped part of the exact same volume. The conveyor has a “tapered” frame depth of (6-5/8” to 4-1/8” to 6-5/8”) and is designed to fit inside or under an existing machine. Cold header conveying equipment with tapered infeed is typically used for removal of stamping material from underneath stamping presses, underground scrap distribution systems and trailer/scrap container filling systems. Conveyors are available in steel hinged belt and steel hinged plate design.
