- Ring charging machine
- Year 2008
- Location Wiehl, Germany
- Stroke velocity
The charging machine transports the produced parts of a ring rolling mill.
The rings which are lying on a pick-up place will be transported by a charging machine, to supply the double chamber furnace. After heating the rings to the hardening temperature, the machine plunges the parts in a quench tank. The quenched rings are transported in the tempering furnace.
The hardening process is completed by discharging the rings in the appropriate palettes.
