In many contexts, industrial conveyor systems are used for little more than transferring a product or material from point A to point B. For some applications, though, conveyor systems are integral to the production process, providing a tool that’s essential to how a new product takes shape.

Parts cooling and drying conveyors in the plastics industry are a great example of the latter.

Plastic products often require high heat to be manufactured; this means they also need time and space to cool off, preferably as quickly as possible. In other cases, products might need time to dry off after paint or other coatings or applied. This is where cooling and drying conveyors become necessary.

mk North America, a leading conveyor manufacturer that takes pride in meeting the needs of businesses in a variety of industries, specializes in cooling and drying conveyors for plastics manufacturing applications.

Cooling Conveyors for Molded Plastic Products

In manufacturing industries, plastic parts are often created with a process called injection molding, where heated plastic is injected into pre-cast molds to be shaped into a final form. In some cases, the newly-formed plastic parts may need to cool off before being fed into a hopper or otherwise integrated into the rest of the product line.

mk North America’s wide selection of belt conveyor systems, along with custom belting for specialty environments, make for ideal solutions to use with in plastic cooling applications.

Parts Drying Conveyors

mk conveyors can also be designed and implemented to allow for products to dry after being applied with paint, enamel, and other coatings.
