ALINE offers the most comprehensive line of engineered chip conveyor product solutions for your machine tool chip removal and scrap removal applications. From small lathes and machining centers to large gantry mills, for individual machines or central systems serving groups of machines, we can design the right chip conveyor solution for your requirements. We can build conveying systems to move chips hundreds of feet across your plant to central collecting points.
Hinge-belt chip conveyors (or hinge 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 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.
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.
