Lifting & Tipping Technology
JOEST System Solution for dry ice dosing
To dose dry ice pellets from their transportation boxes into special isolation containers, JOEST delivered a system solution to the global specialist ASCO Carbon Dioxide this year. Realistic tests at the JOEST Test Center gave insight to the handling of dry ice at extremely low temperatures – at standard pressure -78°C – and the effects it has on the equipment. This data was analyzed by product specialists at JOEST and implemented in the details of the engineering design. The client’s demand was to dose the dry ice pellets with high precision, but without destroying them. A big challenge was the large difference in temperature between the product and the environment. Varying transportation boxes on the feed end, adjustable batch sizes and intermediate storage of the box volume were additional features demanded for the system solution.
Lifting and Tipping Device with Dosing Feeder
In conventional applications, the Lifting and Tipping Device empties the bulk material in one gush, e.g. into downstream feeders. During the tipping process, blockages or damage to sensitive products can occur, due to the drop height. The latest Lifting and Tipping Devices can be fitted with an integrated dosing feeder. The feeder acts as a load pickup for the container. During the tipping process, the container empties its content slowly onto the feeder. Once the discharge position is reached, the vibratory drive is turned on to gently convey the bulk material into the downstream process. This type of feeding technique can be used for galvanized drums, sand blasting plants, packaging machines and many other applications.
Feeding annealing ovens with a reduced drop height
In this year’s spring, JOEST delivered Lifting and Tipping Technology in the form of a Lift and Swivel Column to Leinefelde. The client requested a solution to automatically load and unload annealing ovens with Heson stackable containers. All the equipment was to be placed in a single cell and enclosed by a safety fence. JOEST designed and manufactured an ideal client solution using Lift-ing- and Tipping Technology as well as Magnetic- and Trough-Type-Feeders. The stacking containers are fed into the system on one side by the client. On the other side, the container filled with tempered parts can be removed. The entire loading and unloading process of the oven is fully automated. The container is docked to the load handling attachment of the Lift and Swivel Column, type MSH. The machine lifts the container over a JOEST Trough-Type-Feeder, turns by 180 °C and dips into the feeder as far as possible. Until the machine reaches its final position, the parts are held back by a hydraulic flap. Once the flap has opened, the machine slowly retreats, and a small unbalances motor helps with the residual discharge.
Standard products combined with custom built machines
For a client building a phosphatizing plant as a general contractor for a German automotive company, JOEST designed, manufactured and delivered a large system solution this year, to feed and refill the plant. The project started in 2019 but was temporarily set on hold due to the Covid-Pandemic. It was later picked up again and went into production this year. The task was to dose forging parts into baskets provided by the client, based on the demanded formula. The parts are supplied in two different steel containers. The filled baskets are fed into the phosphatizing bath. After the phosphatizing process, the containers are removed and emptied.
Feeding an in-house recycling plant
For a client in the Netherlands, JOEST delivered a Standard Lifting and Tipping Device from the MD series that will feed an in-house recycling plant. All of the included accessories were customized to the client’s requests and the company’s factory regulations. Production waste is delivered to the client in large garbage containers and is transported and fed into a shredder. The garbage containers on wheels are manually pushed inside a Lifting and Tipping Device and then emptied into the shredder. JOEST designed a Lifting and Tipping Device MD-8 with accessories customized to the client.
Clean transfer of toxic bulk material
JOEST delivered two Lifting and Tipping Devices from the MD series with specially designed load handling attachments to a client in Germany. The machines run on rail tracks so they can easily change between different feeding points. This customized solution that is tailored to the client’s needs, meets highest standards in quality and reliability. The client was searching for a solution to empty 200-liter steel barrels filled toxic bulk material of various grain sizes into a ball mill and a mixer. The main criterion was for the process to run as dust-free as possible. JOEST’s solution was to equip two Lifting and Tipping Devices from the series MD-6 with specially developed load handling attachments. The new design prevents most of the toxic dust from escaping the system. The entire load handling attachment is in a dust-tight enclosure and features a stainless-steel funnel with a pneumatic cover flap.
