Chip And Parts Conveyor For Ferrous Materials

Eriez says its chip and parts conveyors provide a maintenance-free method for moving and elevating ferrous materials such as chips, turnings, small parts and stampings. With the exception of an externally mounted drive motor, the unit is self-contained and the conveyor mechanism is completely enclosed. There are no moving external parts to jam, break or endanger personnel.

Eriez says its chip and parts conveyors provide a maintenance-free method for moving and elevating ferrous materials such as chips, turnings, small parts and stampings. With the exception of an externally mounted drive motor, the unit is self-contained and the conveyor mechanism is completely enclosed. There are no moving external parts to jam, break or endanger personnel. The conveyors use a continuous series of powerful ceramic magnets to pick up and glide materials along the stainless steel slider plate. Material is then discharged over the head end. Lower conveyor sections can be completely submerged in coolant sumps or tanks, because of their liquid-tight construction. The working face is self-cleaning, and excess fluids drain easily back into the tank. The magnetic conveyors are effective in machining and stamping operations where small parts and scrap must be continuously moved from tight spaces, at elevations as high as 90 degrees and often from a liquid quench. Standard models vary in shape from straight horizontal to multiple doglegs including low profile units. Options include integral hoppers, tanks, discharge arrangements, variable speed drives, demagnetizers and rigidized or manganese slider plates.
