The MunchMan hinged steel belt conveyor developed by Jorgensen Conveyors is designed to handle heavy chip loads with large, stringy chips and balls of chips generated in milling and turning applications at high material removal rates. It uses a stacked conveyor arrangement at the lower curve and through the incline and chip discharge of the system. A traditional, horizontal hinged belt load section transitions to the incline when a second hinged steel belt conveyor mounted above the primary conveyor is running in the same direction. Both belts are equipped with carrying cleats. As the chips and stringy balls of chips go through the transition at the lower curve, they are sucked in and pinched between the two moving belts through the incline and discharge area. Chips are compressed and trapped until they are forced off the discharge end of the conveyor. According to the company, this “munching” action decreases the volume of the chips and can lower material handling costs.

 
The conveyer can be designed to fit into most CNC lathes and machining centers, and has little or no effect on the space required vs. traditional single-belt chip conveyors.
