Permanent magnetic chip and parts conveyors from Eriez® move and elevate ferrous materials such as chips, turnings, small parts, and stampings. The units are designed for operator safety and low maintenance.
Besides an externally mounted drive motor, the conveyors are self-contained, with a conveyor mechanism that is completely enclosed. There are no moving external parts to jam, break, or put personnel at risk.
Using a continuous series of ceramic magnets, the conveyors pick up and glide material along the stainless steel slider plate. Material then is discharged over the head end. With their liquid-tight construction, lower conveyor sections can be completely submerged in coolant sumps or tanks. The working face of the conveyor is self-cleaning, and excess fluids drain easily.
