An electrically heated belt conveyor oven with two decks, top-down airflow and a cool down, designed and manufactured by Wisconsin Oven, is used for curing adhesive on motorcycle rear fenders. Each work chamber is 5'9" wide x 19'3" long x 2'2" high. This oven was designed with 4” tongue and groove panels, and the equipment included a horizontal split line for ease of shipping. The oven was rated for a maximum operating temperature of 500°F with a heating capacity of 144 kW.

Three fenders are mounted on a pallet jig, which is lifted up on a lift table to the oven entrance. The fenders are then indexed into the oven through five stations, six minutes at each station, totaling 30 minutes in the oven. The fenders are indexed out of the oven onto a lift table that lowers the pallet down to the cool-down chamber. The fenders are then indexed into the cool-down chamber through five stations for six minutes at each station, totaling 30 minutes in the cool-down. The fenders are indexed out of the cool-down, and the pallet is unloaded and reloaded by the operator.

The oven features a 27,000 cfm at 20 hp recirculation blower. The cool-down has a 19,500 cfm at 20 hp push blower and 19,500 cfm at 20 hp pull blower. There are four pneumatic vertical lift doors. The fenders are conveyed through the equipment by 1” x 1” heavy duty flat wire belt conveyors.
