Auger Assist conveyor system
- June 3, 2022
Jorgensen Conveyor and Filtration Solutions has introduced the Auger Assist Conveyor.
The system has a 48-inch discharge height, which allows the use of larger collection bins and eliminates the need for frequent hopper unloads on today’s auger-driven machine tools. The system enables machines to handle higher chip volumes and reduces the amount of labor needed for chip hopper management.
Chute direction on the new Auger Assist Conveyor easily rotates 90 degrees in either direction, giving the conveyor and discharge multiple positioning options to meet customer needs and save valuable floor space. Additionally, seven inches of discharge height adjustment allow the load chute to adapt to many different machine tool models.
The unit incorporates a baffled chute to efficiently direct chips. The chute easily mates with a variety of CNC machines using auger chip removal systems. The Auger Assist also features a coolant collection tank and drain plug to reclaim coolant. The Auger Assist can be used as a stand-alone solution or as the first step in an entire chip processing system.
Complementing its four-foot discharge height, the Auger Assist is compact and maneuverable with a small, 70- X 74- X 23-inch frame on swivel wheels. The Auger Assist’s pre-engineered design allows for quick delivery.
