Briquette-Making Machine

The briquette-making machine is used to compress different materials, i.e. all types of steel, grey cast iron, wood, paper and non-ferrous metals.

DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGICAL FEATURES OF THE MACHINE:

MAIN MACHINE CHARACTERISTICS

– low energy consumption;
– easy handling and simple machine design;
– storage of turnings decreased by a minimum of 75%;
– lower logistics costs related to waste turnings;
– compression of various materials: all types of steel, grey cast iron, non-ferrous metals;
– complete control over loading or dosing materials into the first chamber by means of a screw loading device (loading cycle adapted to the type of material);
– collection of liquids into a receptacle and simple automatic emptying of the receptacle;
– independent automatic cycle;
– easy dosing of waste materials and rejects.

TECHNOLOGICAL FEATURES OF THE BRIQUETTE-MAKING MACHINE

Description of a production cycle from operator’s and machine’s perspective:

–  turnings are loaded into a dosing receptacle (operator),
–  ancillary screw loaders push the turnings into the central dosing system,
–  the main screw loader uses the unloading drum to push the turnings into the first chamber,
–  a hydraulically-driven vertical mandrel closes up the first chamber, which performs a 70% compression of the turnings,
–  a horizontal mandrel then performs a 70% compression of turnings in the second chamber compresses,
–  a compressed cube (briquette) is formed,
–  the horizontal and vertical mandrels are then retracted,
–  a movable jaw transports the cube from the machine system,
–  the entire cycle is then repeated as described under points 3, 4 and 5. In parallel with the step described in point 5, the reject is ejected onto an output slide, which is equipped with a reverse lock-out mechanism,
–  the process is repeated continuously and seamlessly.
