MunchMan Steel Belt Conveyor
Jorgensen Conveyors (Mequon, WI) has announced the development of its newest conveyor for metal cutting machine tool chip removal. The new MunchMan hinged steel belt conveyor is designed to handle heavy chip loads and large stringy chips and balls of chips generated in milling and turning applications where high work piece stock removal rates exist. The conveyor employs a unique 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 the belt in the same direction as the primary belt. Both belts are designed with carrying cleats.
