Magnetic chip, parts conveyors handle abrasive materials

August 10, 2004

Bunting Magnetics Co. offers beltless MagSlide™ chip and parts conveyors designed to handle sharp, abrasive parts and scrap.

Permanently lubricated drive chains move permanently charged ceramic or rare earth magnets inside the conveyor housing. The magnets move ferrous materials along the conveyor's heavy-gauge stainless steel slider beds.

The twin-roller drive chains that hold and move the magnets travel in oil-impregnated SlideTrack™ channels made from ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that reduce friction and noise. Built-in oil fittings permit manual or automatic supplemental lubrication.

The CAD-engineeredconveyors are available in horizontal, inclined, and angled units with both fixed and mobile bases. Low-profile models also are available. Except for the electric motor, all moving parts are totally enclosed. Optional watertight housings are available.
