Applications in heat treatment


MUCKI® metered product feed for heat treatment

The controlled and uniform use of the belt furnace and gentle handling of the hardening stock avoiding big drop heights is an important criterion for the heat treatment of small metal parts on conveyor furnace systems. The hydraulic tipping device for emptying customer containers is therefore equipped with a hydraulically operated cover that is opened slowly in a final tipping position and which transfers the hardening stock gently to the material bunker. The drop heights and noise generated by the tipping action are reduced.

The metering hopper is erected on measuring cells. The specified throughput rate is regulated by weight in kg/h. The control is implemented using a SIEMENS S7, for which DIETERLE has developed software for continuous and uniform charging of the belt furnace. The desired setpoint value can be entered manually on the Operator Panel or can be provided via an interface by a higher level system. Plant statuses and actual values are visualised. The PLC interface reads out the metering data to the customer controller.
