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.
