Steel Hinged Plate Conveyors

MTF Technik Fördertechnik - Intro

The MTF steel hinged plate conveyors are reliable workhorses in a rough environment. They are used in nearly every area of metalworking (stamped, pressed and forged parts, die-cast parts made from zinc or aluminium, crush pressure pieces like screws or rivets) or in the plastics industry for transporting very hot products.

Steel Hinged Plate Conveyors

Straight Steel Hinged Plate Conveyors

Straight Steel Hinged Plate Conveyor are versatile. They serve as chain transporters, as output belts for pressed pieces, as deposit belts for die-cast components or for transport of very hot or phthalate-containing plastic pieces.

Hinged plates of steel or stainless steel with a heat resistance up to 350°C, various surface configurations (smooth, studded, slotted, perforated), stable and flexible bases as well as a perfect appearance make these belts unique.

The grooves in the sides and underneath the belt profile offer a maximum of flexibility regarding the attachment of bases or additional features.

The hinged plates are equipped with a chain guide on both sides. Spring-loaded chain tensioners mounted in the belt body provide a maintenance-free operation.

For smaller hinged belt conveyors with low belt loads, the base HE 020 offers an affordable and flexible solution. It is completely adjustable in both height and belt angle and can thus be easily adjusted to different tasks.

  • Large height adjustment range
  • Secure position and good manoeuvrability for smaller belts
  • Angle adjustable between +/-60°

Bei großen Bandbelastungen sind insbesondere im Bereich der Metallverarbeitung entsprechend stabile Förderbandausführungen notwendig. Dies bezieht sich sowohl auf die Konstruktion des eigentlichen Bandkörpers als auch der Trichtermaterialien und des Untergestells. Ebenso müssen die Antriebseinheiten für die Belastungen in verstärkter Ausführung ausgelegt werden.

  • Extrem stabile Ausführung
  • Sicherer Stand
  • Leistungs- und drehmomentstarker Antrieb
  • Bunkervolumen: 1.000 l
  • Max. Füllgewicht: 700kg

Special problems require special solutions. So often the geometry of available machine shafts presents a great challenge. In such situations, the pictured belt can, like a ship in a bottle, be brought into the shaft in a folded state in order to unfold the side guide plates and base there.

  • Drum motor as special model for hinged plate belts
  • Adaptable guide plates
  • Special base

Steel Hinged Plate Conveyors with Negative Angle

The angled conveyors with steel hinged plates are essential for transporting hot materials out of machine shafts, as this often happens, for example, in the die casting industry. Likewise they serve to transport strongly lubricant-containing pieces and chips that occur during machining.

The entire configuration, from length and width to the surface of the plates, is laid out to order by MTF Technik.

Fixed angles of 30°, 45°, 60° and 75° are offered as standard.

Small steel plate belts with narrow belt loads can be furnished with a base Type HE 020. With the H-shaped base stand, it offers stability and is very compact. The base is adjustable along the belt body in the side grooves. If necessary, additional belt supports can be installed.

  • Completely adjustable angle
  • Height adjustment range can be freely defined by the length of the base supports
  • With longer or wider belts, additional bases or belt supports can be installed.

Hinged plate belts are not useful only with high temperatures or sharp-edged items. In the plastics industry, partial products are produced that contain specific plasticizers - so-called phthalates. These phthalates attack normal plastic belts with polyurethane or PVC surfaces and make them brittle. The steel hinged plates are impervious to phthalates and offer a durable solution.

  • Resistance to various plasticizers
  • Use in the plastics industry

For the removal of parts or waste from machine shafts, there is often very limited space available. Depending on the task and machine bed geometry, it may therefore be necessary to dispense with an actual base and instead to attach slide rails underneath the belt body to be able to fit the belt into the machine.

  • Compact dimensions, suited to the machine bed geometry
  • Stable support of the flat belt section
  • Free overhanging sloped section for transfer of parts to further conveyor technology or into containers

Steel Hinged Plate Conveyors with Positive Angle

Angled conveyors with steel hinged plates and positive belt bend are used, for example, for the measured filling of machines.

Especially with sharp-edged or heavy items, the hardened hinged plates are the right choice.

Positively angled steel plate conveyors with short horizontal flat belt sections are often equipped with a base Type LD 120. It offers a maximum degree of flexibility and stability and guarantees a free overhanging flat section.

  • Fully adjustable height along the base profile
  • Fixed belt angle 30°, 45°, 60° or 75° as standard, other angles are possible as special model
  • Stable belt and base configuration for installation in harsh environment
  • Base available as stationary or movable

Z-Shaped Steel Hinged Plate Conveyors

Angled conveyors in Z-shape with steel hinged plates are especially useful in metalworking. They serve as chip conveyors, as output belts from machine shafts, etc.

The high temperature resistance as well as the robust construction make them essential in foundries, press plants, for screw finishing and many other areas of metalworking.

The standard belt angles are 30°, 45°, 60° and 75°.

An H -shaped single stand forms the framework for the base Type HE 020. The belt is mounted in the side grooves and can thus be adjusted simply in height and angle.

  • Free overhanging flat belt section, thus no disturbing edges
  • Lower flat portion can be lowered to the floor
  • Height and angle of the belt body at the base infinitely adjustable

Stable and also flexible - that is the maxim of the base Type LD 120. The closed steel ground frame offers the necessary stability for the hard industrial use. The anodized aluminum supports with two integrated grooves provide a maximum of flexibility, since height and angle can be infinitely adjusted.

  • Large height adjustment range
  • Free overhanging flat belt section
  • Lower flat portion can be lowered to the floor, making minimal output height realizable

The removal of parts from a pit often requires special base designs, since different floor levels serve as installation surfaces. For the Z-Belt, the base HM 140 enables this transportation to take place, while the straight belt is supported by a compact base at a high level. Type LD 120 is best for this use.

  • Flexible adaptation to different height levels
  • Divided conveyor line to enable later insertion in the available machine bed and to ensure the accessibility to the machine plinth.
  • Side crane hooks on both belts for easy handling
