Bunting Magnetics uses 3D solid-model technology in its line of beltless MagSlide chip and parts conveyors to handle sharp, abrasive parts and scrap that can damage conventional conveyors with belts. Permanently lubricated drive chains move permanently charged high-energy ceramic or rare earth magnets inside the conveyor housing. These magnets, in turn, move ferrous materials along the conveyor’s heavy-gauge stainless steel slider beds.

The twin-roller drive chains that hold and move the conveyor magnets travel in the company’s oil-impregnated SlideTrack channels made from ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) to provide continuous lubrication. Friction and noise are said to be eliminated. To further extend chain life, built-in oil fittings permit manual or automatic supplemental lubrication.

The conveyors are CAD-engineered and manufactured on advanced CNC punching, milling and turning equipment for precision fit and long-term reliability, the company says. Models include horizontal, inclined and angled units with both fixed and mobile bases, as well as low-profile conveyors. Except for the electric motor, all moving parts are totally enclosed. Optional watertight housings can be submerged. Also available are a wide range of magnetic belt conveyors, conveyor systems and conveyor components.
