JÖST charging machines are tough machines that are able to meet the high demands of foundry operation thanks to a mature and sophisticated design. They essentially consist of a hopper, vibrating discharge feeder, chassis frame and control unit. Usually, the hopper capacity is designed so that the furnace can be completely filled.
The charging machine is filled in a defined loading position via overhead crane, forklift, wheel loaders, tilting lift equipment or similar. From this loading position, the charging machine moves to a defined unloading position via longitudinal or lateral movement or both. Once the unloading position is reached, the vibrating conveyor is started and the material present in the hopper is emptied into the furnace.
