To remove chips quickly, the machine also has an auger-fed, belt-type chip conveyor system.

Each of the 400-mm pallets has a load capacity of as much as 1,000 lbs. The pallets can be scheduled individually according to priority and sequencing requirements, which allows high-priority parts to be machined first and/or staged more often. Completed pallets are returned automatically to the holding location, or can be sequenced to a protected operator station for immediate unloading and re-loading.
