The DTI-1160 indexing conveyor oven is used to temper alloy steel rods after a chroming process. The rods are used in the manufacturing of automotive suspension systems. The rods are loaded vertically, by robots, into custom trays that make up the conveying system. Each tray processes 42 rods and the trays index through the heated chamber based on timed increments. After the tempering process is complete the rods are indexed through a cooling zone that utilizes ambient plant air.



  • Provides in line manufacturing
  • Reduces labor cost of batch processes in regards to handling required to load and unload product racks
  • Eliminates multiple batch ovens required to keep pace with production


  • The oven utilizes electric heat
  • Heated airflow within the chamber is vertical top down
  • The oven utilizes heating zone and cooling zone in same body
  • Constant pnuematic take-up compensates for conveyor thermal expansion during operation
  • All functions of the machine are controlled by PLC with an operator touch screen (HMI)
  • Conveying system operates in an index configuration
