Whether producing/removing chips or moving parts/scrap pieces, Hennig says it can provide the chip conveyor for all machine tool requirements. The 2-1/2” pitch steel belt can be made for most applications in the field when the standard 1-1/2” pitch belt is not effective for the particular conditions present.
Conveyors from Hennig can be manufactured in widths from 8” to 80” wide, depending on the need. The belt hinge is designed as one continuous piece. The company recognizes the special requirements needed when designing a parts conveyor on which direct loads contact the belt. Impact plates are only one of the many options considered when customizing a conveyor for these applications.
Chip volumes can also vary between applications, so speeds and sizes are always considered. Special incline covers (top hat design) can be included when large amounts of stringy/balled chips are to be evacuated from the machine.
As adjunct to this 2-1/2” pitch steel belt conveyor, Hennig also offers complete filtration systems. The company’s chip disc filtration (CDF) systems can also be used with the 2-1/2” pitch conveyor. These systems can filter down to 25 microns of filtration and additional bag filters can be included to achieve the through-spindle requirements on most applications.
