The MunchMan II twin steel belt conveyor from Jorgensen Conveyors is designed to handle large, stringy chips and balls of chips generated by milling and turning applications. The updated conveyor features a drive system that uses one gear motor to run both drive shafts, a speed control function and a current overload sensor with the JamManager programming safety device. The company says the track has been reworked to enable rapid customer design modification and more efficient fabrication.
Compatible with a variety of CNC lathes and machining centers, the machine employs a stacked conveyor arrangement at the lower curve and through the incline and chip discharge. Primary and secondary cleated belts run in opposite directions to grab hold of chips and securely carry them up steep inclines, eliminating the risk of conveyor jams caused by chip balls tumbling back down the conveyor.
