Drive Automotive has been a Goessling customer for over 20 years. In fact, the focus of the article was about their new Goessling conveyor lines. Drive project manager Frank Dressler told MetalForming that a big reason for their success was the decision to switch to Goessling steel belt conveyors when looking to replace their old rubber-belt conveyors.

“We originally tried rubber-belt conveyors,” Dressler told MF author Brad Kuvin. “However, the belts deteriorated prematurely from the sharp scrap. The switch to steel belts eliminated that concern.”

Drive Automotive’s new Goessling scrap conveyor joins 42 other conveyor lines already in the facility that the company has been using for nearly 20 years of continuous use. “We just replaced one of the oldest belts in the plant, installed in 1997, after 19 years of practically 24/7 operation,” Dressler told MF.

De-Oiling Centrifuges Offer Solvent-Free De-Oiling Of Cold Headed Parts

Posted by on Sep 1, 2014 in Blog, Centrifuges | 0 comments

Goessling USA Inc., a producer of material handling equipment for stamping, fastener and forging industries worldwide, offers a solution to de-oiling cold-headed parts without the use of solvents or chemicals with its line of De-Oiling Centrifuges.

This is accomplished by utilizing smoothly accelerated start and stop cycles during high-speed centrifugal drum rotation. The force created results in clean, de-oiled parts that are ready for discharging into vibratory bowls, pointers, slotters, threaders, etc. Oil recovery is achieved through a drain tube located under the centrifuge, which eliminates the handling of oil as a hazardous waste and the hassle of recycling washing solutions from cleaning-washing-machines.

For hollow parts or parts with recessed surfaces, a clockwise/counter-clockwise spinning option is available to effectively de-oil hard to reach areas. Four sizes are available with capacities ranging from 10 lbs. to 80 lbs. (depending on the size and quantity of the parts to be de-oiled).

Our centrifuges will handle the smallest of electronic screws to the largest of bolts, nuts and other wire-headed parts.

Breaking Ground On The New TN Manufacturing Facility

GoesslingUSA Piney Flats Facility Groundbreaking

Goessling USA, Inc. has broken ground on its new headquarters and manufacturing facility located in the Tri-County Industrial Park in Piney Flats, Tennessee (August 21).

Founded in 1990 as a subsidiary of privately-owned German Dr. Ing. Gössling Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Goessling USA, Inc. has developed into a major supplier of conveyors, interlinking systems and centrifuges for the fastener industry. With its wide range of conveyors and other machinery such as lift-tip units and scrap distribution systems, Goessling USA, Inc., also provides solutions for other industries such as stamping, forging and casting.

Following several years of constantly increasing order volumes, a larger production facility is required to cope with the growing demand. With a surface area totaling 6.39 acres, the property located in the Tri-County Industrial Park owned by Goessling USA, Inc. will offer sufficient space for the necessary enlargement and will also allow for future expansion. The new building scheduled to be erected will encompass 12,500 square feet of office and production space. This new facility will not only make it possible to increase the output of machinery which is presently manufactured in the USA, but will also allow the manufacture of larger conveyor systems previously manufactured at the German facility for the North American market, potentially creating new jobs in the Tri-Cities region.

Construction is expected to begin Fall 2014 with completion of the facility in Spring 2015.

Goessling USA, Inc. would like to thank all officials and partners for their assistance and support and looks forward to the development opportunities this new facility will provide for the Tri-Cities region.

Low Profile Conveyors for Narrow Applications Underneath Stamping Dies

Posted by on Jul 15, 2014 in Blog, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Goessling USA, a long time supplier of conveying equipment, now has low-profile conveyor belts available for stamping die applications where space is extremely limited.

Smallest Frame Height Conveyors

Commonly referred to as “Stampboys”, these hinged belt conveyors incorporate the smallest effective frame height in the industry. It’s 2″ frame height allows for the conveyor to fit into very narrow stamping dies for discharging slugs, scrap, or small parts. The pimpled belt surface reduces the sticking of oily materials on the belt surface while running side-wings on both sides of the belt hinder scrap from penetrating under the belt into the conveyor frame. In the past, these applications typically used rubber or plastic belts, which often required periodic replacement belts due to tears or cuts forming in the material, creating production downtime.

Available as a Magnetic Conveyor

Low-profile conveyors are also available in a magnetic sliding configuration. Material transferred by magnetic sliding conveyors are steel parts only, such as small steel parts, scrap, pins, chips, etc. A continuous system of permanent magnets attracts the steel parts (or scrap) to the stainless steel slide surface, moving them to the discharge end of the conveyor. The stainless steel slide surface is also available with a textured surface to prevent flat parts from sticking to it. For highly abrasive materials, it can be supplied out of manganese steel. All moving parts of the conveyor are lubricated for life and hermetically sealed within the conveyor frame. By using different size magnets, even large strips of metal can be conveyed without problems.

Goessling USA Designs New Magnetic Slide Conveyor

Posted by on Jun 27, 2014 in Magnetic Slide Conveyors, News | 0 comments

For the past 24 years, Goessling USA, Inc. has supplied Magnetic
Slide Conveyors to fastener and stamping companies throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Recently, a new design was added to this product line which features a one-piece formed sliding surface that eliminates any possibility of fine material or oil to sit in corners on either side of the conveyor. The result is 100% transference of the smallest and finest material and zero possibility of oil penetration anywhere along the conveyor sliding surface. The formed sides of the sliding surface act as guides to keep material on the sliding surface (where it belongs). By utilizing a slight incline during the placement of the conveyor, any oil can be directed back to the conveyor entrance where the parts/scrap make contact with the sliding surface where it can then be reclaimed. As with all other conveyors designed and supplied by Goessling USA, this new design incorporates the same quality and durability that customers have come to expect and rely on for the transfer of ferrous material. Customer applications vary from plant to plant, which is why conveyor specifications typically vary as well. Goessling USA can work with each customer to design and manufacture conveyors to ensure the most productive, economical method is accomplished to get materials from “A” to “B”.

Choosing The Right Conveyor For The Job

Posted by on May 9, 2014 in Blog, Conveyors | 0 comments

ChoiceWhen determining conveyor requirements for a new application there are a number of things that should be taken into consideration. What kind of material will you be transferring? What size is the material? At what rate will the material enter the conveyor from the production machine? How much floor space do you have dedicated for the conveyor? These are just a few of the questions that should be asked when choosing the right conveyor for the job.

Often times a customer will say “I’m only buying a conveyor to move material…why are you asking all of these questions?”. There is no such thing as too much information. The more information you have pertaining to the application, the better chance you have at eliminating the possibility for making mistakes concerning the solution. The end result is maximum performance, efficiency and reliability. (more…)

Magnetic Slide Conveyors – They’re Not Just For Chips Anymore

Posted by on Apr 12, 2014 in Blog, Chip Conveyors, Magnetic Slide Conveyors | 0 comments

Years ago, magnetic slide conveyors were primarily used in milling and machining applications to remove metal chips from coolant that the equipment used to ease cutting of the metal and to extend tooling life.

However, as time went on everyone began to realize that with the appropriate strength magnet in conjunction with the correct magnet spacing and motor speed that these conveyors could transfer much more than just metal shavings.

Today, magnetic slide conveyors are used to move a large assortment of materials, from transferring fasteners like nuts, bolts, washers, springs and clips to removing scrap from stamping presses, as long as the material to be transferred is ferrous metal. (more…)

Conveyor Maintenance Tips

Conveyors used in manufacturing are too often treated like the way many of us treat our automobiles. We change the oil and basically drive them until they break down, and only then do we complain about the expense for repair, time lost and simply the inconvenience of it all. We expect them to perform flawlessly without the routine maintenance they require.
