Curing Cell Includes Ovens, Material Handling Equipment
A custom part manufacturer took delivery of a custom curing cell that includes two dual-strand chain conveyor ovens and material handling equipment with chain-driven line rollers (CDLR) and pop-up transfers. Manufactured and supplied by Lewco Inc., a single lane oven with accumulation preheats the parts and keeps them warm until the operator is ready for the filling process.
With the push of a foot pedal, a single mold exits the oven. When the part is filled, a second press of the pedal sends the part to a dual-lane cure oven. Once cured, a second operator foot pedal is pressed to release the cured part from the oven.
Controls include an operator interface touchscreen with a programmable logic controller (PLC) to allow the customer to easily control all oven operations from one interface.
