Paternoster / Walking Beam Furnace
For tempering resp. the temper annealing of crankshafts, camshafts, axles and others after the hardening process, multi-zone chain-conveyor ovens are used (heating-up, holding, cooling).Paternoster design is space-saving and complete height of workshop hall can be used.
The double-tracked crosshead workholder can be executed multi-lane to pick-up 4 or 5 or more multi-cylinder crankshafts. A special construction is the Walking Beam Oven for cycle-mode-transport, e.g. for ship crankshafts.
