Case Study: Aluminum Shot – MARTIN® NTK® Oscillator Solution

Problem

A manufacturer of aluminum shot was having serious quality control problems regarding the size and shape of his product. Pieces were deformed or elongated to the point where his customers were complaining.

Situation

The existing solution was to use MARTIN® UCVR-8.20 Vibrators to meter the product during its formation. This method gave them the required tonnage per hour, but not the surface quality they desired.

Solution

The introduction of a MARTIN® NTK® Oscillator (NTK-85) has since greatly improved the uniformity of their product while maintaining desired production levels. The additional benefits of less noise and reduced air consumption have greatly improved the work environment.
