SERPENT and Dove Pty Ltd has supplied two unique-style magnetic conveyors to a large Australian steel maker.

The company’s production line involves steel sheet of thicknesses varying from 0.2mm to 1.2mm has to be unrolled from large coils and introduced to pinch rollers, which in turn drive the continuous sheet into annealing and recoiling processes.

The specialised conveyors each feature five magnetic elements beneath the belt and along their length.

These elements employ a particular combination of rare earth and ferrite magnet materials to flatten the uncoiling steel against its coiled 'memory' and gravity to the underside of the conveyor as the belt carries the steel forward and into the pinch rollers.

The conveyors are both 1100mm wide and 2450mm and 1700mm long and provide increased efficiencies.
