Hot as iron

The German company Hirschvogel Eisenach GmbH produces automobile components for renowned car manufacturers and concentrates on shaping solid steel. The extreme environment generated by steel forming, makes high demands on all the components used for manufacturing. A special challenge is moving the red-hot items from one processing station to the next. This is why Hirschvogel Eisenach GmbH places its faith in rugged sprocket chain conveyors supplied by Rexroth Pneumatics to link its new production equipment. The hot steel blanks, still in the 1,200 degree range, are transported right on the sprocket-type chains. These are up to the job, being made of quality tempered steel. They run on sprockets made of vacuum-toughened tool steel. Due to their slat-shaped design, they expand only slightly while the special tooth profile prevents damage to the “freight.
