Jorgensen Conveyors, Weima Partner to Integrate Chip Management Equipment
The companies have integrated Jorgensen’s line of conveyors into a chip processing system that shreds metal chips and shavings and forms them into briquettes.
The companies have integrated Jorgensen’s line of conveyors into a chip processing system that shreds metal chips and shavings and forms them into briquettes. According to the companies, the system can reduce the volume of aluminum, magnesium, copper, brass, steel and other metals by up to 90 percent. The system reduces material handling and labor, increases scrap value and improves the extraction of cutting fluids.
“Providing products and systems that enhance productivity and offer a solid return on investment is always our focus,” says John D’Amico, co-principal at Jorgensen Conveyors. “These integrated chip handling and processing systems support environmentally sensitive and sustainable manufacturing as well as the maximization of recycled content.”
This shop installed a series of improvements that eliminated spent coolant waste.
Clean machining using minimum quantity lubrication has allowed Ford’s Van Dyke transmission plant to become fundamentally more efficient and effective at manufacturing six-speed automatic transmissions.
This micro-volume coolant delivery system uses ethanol as the cooling medium for non-ferrous workpieces. The ethanol evaporates after it cools the cutting tool, so no residue is left behind on machined workpieces.
