Most reliable and durable power & free conveyor systems available
Top-of-the-line Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for heavy-duty loading and unloading of aluminium ingots or transporting of anodes
Outstanding aftermarket service
Power & free conveyors transport green anodes from vibrocompactors through the anode cooling tunnel and to the green anode roller conveyor. Only the anode itself is exposed to the cooling fluid bath. The operating components of the overhead conveyor system are located away from the coolant water to help extend conveyor life and increase operating efficiency.
Automatic stacker cranes, anode cleaning machines, lifting, turning and positioning devices as well as heavy-duty roller conveyors and grouping conveyors increase throughput and productivity in this harsh environment. When it comes to delivering baked anodes to casting stations, inverted power & free conveyors provide controlled accumulation and accurate pouring positioning.
Webb Aluminium Group manufactures and/or supplies process machinery for automatic load/unload stations, casting stations, shot blast units, stub heating, butt and thimble removal presses as well as rod repair operations.
Anode delivery to Pot Room
Webb’s rugged Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) can transport fresh and spent anode assemblies to and from the pot room as well as take molten metal from the pot room to the casting house. Additionally, power & free conveyors automatically buffer the production capacity differentials between the rodding shop and the pot room.
