Jorgensen Conveyors’ MunchMan hinged steel belt conveyor is designed to handle heavy loads of large stringy chips and balls of chips generated in milling and turning applications. The system features a stacked conveyor arrangement at its lower curve as well as though the incline and chip discharge area to prevent jams. A horizontal, hinged belt-load section transitions to the incline where a second hinged steel belt conveyor mounted above the primary conveyor is running the belt in the same direction as the primary belt. Both belts feature carrying cleats. As the chips pass 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. The conveyor can be designed to fit into most CNC lathes and machining centers, the company says.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
