In the mid 1950's, Milwaukee, Wisconsin based industrial conveyor system manufacturer Jorgensen began
to get involved in conveyors to handle chips, turnings and scrap produced by machine tools.
Along the way, Jorgensen designed its own belt and invested in tooling to stamp the metal belt parts.
Giddings & Lewis, Sundstrand and Greenlee were among our first machine tool builder customers.
Charles T. Jorgensen refined and improved the original designs, and established patents that were key
in Jorgensen becoming a leader in the machine tool chip conveyor industry. As the technology in CNC
metal cutting machine tools has advanced, Jorgensen has kept pace by offering conveyor design
solutions to meet the evolving chip removal requirements of these machines. In 1995 Jorgensen came
out with the Filterveyor, a chip removal system that addresses the coolant filtration requirements of
many of today's high speed CNC metal cutting machine tools.
Today, we use continuous improvement methods to provide our customers the latest in technological
advancements in chip and waste removal machinery as well as coolant filtration solutions. We
maintain ISO 9008 quality standards maintain lean initiates to keep our cost competitive.
