Our products

Product category: Annealing lehrs, continuous/intermittent operation


The uncovered section is manufactured using particularly sturdy section bars suited to the load.
This section contains:
• The belt drive system with gear-box, the power transmission chain and various rollers to drive and to deviate the belt.
• The system to recover belt elongation and keep it constantly tensioned.
• The belttrackingsystem.
• Spaces designed and equipped to introduce various types of cold-end coating systems, such as vaporizing hood, top-spray, back-up spray, bottom spray, etc.
• Space for auxiliary cooling bridges.
• Space for the belt cleaning system (motorized brush).

The entire section is designed and guaranteed to avoid belt slipping, in any charge condition.

Product category: Annealing lehrs, continuous/intermittent operation


The charge-end of Antonini Annealing Lehrs is composed of:

• A roller, manufactured using anti-deformation techniques, fitted onto a support system that self-compensates elongation due to the temperature.
• An efficacious albeit simple support system that keeps the belt from sagging between the roller and the sliding bed of the first module of Tunnel.
• One or more insulated “sandwich” doors, which can be raised manually or by motor, to reduce heat dispersion. Solutions with pneumatic doors, used for hand charge, are also available.
• A front hood, which can be provided on request.

Thanks to the technology matured over the years, Antonini annealing lehrs guaranty low consumption levels and maximum efficiency. Furthermore, by using high-quality materials and components, the lehrs ensure a long service life with extremely limited maintenance requirements.
An automatic control system guarantees uniform and stable heating temperatures inside the annealing lehr.

The temperature controlled section (Tunnel), is subdivided into a number of modules depending from various factors, such as production, loading system, temperatures, thermal process, etc.
The Tunnel is composed of 3 types of modules: heating only, mix (heating and cooling), cooling only. Each of these is, in turn, composed of an internal case (tunnel) made of high-quality steel suited to the use (usually stainless), high-quality rock-wool insulation, an external frame and panels, painted as desired. The external panels may also be made of stainless steel.
