Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic Corporation supplied three (3) Temper Ovens to a major automotive parts manufacturer in Mexico for the tempering of CV joints. Each oven is designed for a maximum operating temperature of 250°C with uniformity of +/- 5°C. The continuous belt, variable speed conveyor, carries more than 240 parts per hour through the oven and cooler system, which are robot loaded and manually unloaded.
The Ajax oven design offers a short footprint which is achieved through a rapid heat up and uniform heat distribution in the oven, and a very efficient cooler, which brings parts to a low, cool down temperature in a compact chamber for manual handling at the unload station.
Direct gas fired burners are used as the heat source, with the ATM design providing a wide range turn-down capability to conserve fuel while maintaining process chamber uniformity. The oven also utilizes a unique duct work design proven to be highly effective in heat treat processes.
Each oven is controlled with a PLC and touch screen, which includes a programmed system shut down once the proper cool down temperature has been achieved.
