Chip Conveyor Types

Three Common Formats

Most shop applications can be satisfied with hinge-belt, scraper or magnetic type conveyors. 

Hennig specializes in all three, using the same quality control measures across design and production.

 

Scraper-type chip conveyor


Scraper-type chip conveyors are most often used for cast iron, bronze or brass machining, which produces smaller chips that can nest together. Chips fall directly to the bottom of the conveyor, and scrapers drag debris to the discharge end of the conveyor.

 

Hinge-type chip conveyor


Hinge-belt chip conveyors, the most common format, offer an effective means of managing heavy chip loads and stringy chips. Chips that fall from the machine tool land on the conveyor belt and are conveyed away from the machine tool’s precision surfaces.


 

Magnetic-type chip conveyor


Magnetic chip conveyors are intended for ferrous material applications with small chips. The chips fall onto the conveyor’s stainless steel surface and are conveyed by powerful magnets moving underneath. The chips are released from the magnets at the discharge end, and fall freely into a collection container.



 

Advantages

Hennig Chip conveyors are equipped with a slip clutch safety mechanism, which protects the conveyor from damage in the event that an over accumulation of particles or a foreign object blocks the proper movement of the conveyor belt.

Heavy duty direct drive motors power Hennig chip conveyors. All motors used on Hennig conveyors are equipped with overload protection.

Hinge plates and side plates on Hennig chip conveyors are made from heavy-duty steel. These are the heaviest, most durable steels being used in the industry.

To facilitate access to the internal areas of the chip conveyors, Hennig incorporates a removable cover plate in its conveyor design. Removal of the plate is easy, and maintenance to the cover's interior can be conducted with minimal effort. 

Hennig’s adjustable take-up mechanism is externally mounted for easy access and quick adjustment of belt tension.

Extra heavy-duty internal chain guides withstand the rigors of constant use and ensure nearly maintenance-free operation. This feature enables Hennig chip conveyors to work longer and harder, greatly reducing maintenance downtime.

Heavy-duty casters can be affixed to some Hennig chip conveyors, a helpful feature in environments where conveyors need to be moved or slid into a machine base.

Depending on the customer's particular needs, virtually any type of electrical control box can be wired to control the conveyor's operation. 

 

Technical Details

Auxiliary and Heavy Duty Coolant Tanks


Coolant storage tanks are made from heavy gauge steel to provide leak-free service in harsh shop environments. Removable cover plates allow easy access to the tank’s interior for quick, easy maintenance. Baffles, chip baskets, and removable screens can also be added.

If coolant isn’t cleaned quickly, machining is interrupted. Hennig solves the problem with custom-engineered, custom-tailored auxiliary coolant tanks to control flow rates.

 

Replaceable Cartridge Filter Elements


Custom coolant filtration systems generally include replaceable cartridge filter elements and a replaceable cartridge filter . Continuous optimum performance is assured by configuring each filtration system according to the precise requirements of each application.

 

Heavy-Duty Pumps


Heavy-duty pumps recycle coolant reliably. Automatic on-off float switches can be provided on request. Hennig can provide a complete coolant filtration solution.
