The MunchMan® II Features a Unique Double Cleated Belt Design
The MunchMan® hinged steel belt conveyor, introduced at the 2012 IMTS show, was designed
specifically to handle heavy chip loads with large stringy chips and balls of chips generated in milling
and turning applications where high work piece stock removal rates exist. The MunchMan has been
well received and is performing well in our customers' facilities.
When asked, one customer says, “All is well with the MunchMan®. The operator for that machine
loves it. We have put it through the ringer several times and it did great!”
Another said, "We are Loving it! So far, absolutely no breakdowns and it has spit out large
watermelon sized stringers."
All along, our Product Development Engineering team has continued to refine and improve on the
design and we are now pleased to introduce these changes in the MunchMan® II. Starting with a
sleek new look, design enhancements to the MunchMan® II conveyor include:
* Patent Pending design
improvements to the drive system which allow just one gear
motor to run both drive shafts
* New speed control functionality
and a current overload sensor with JamManager™
programming safety device
* The conveyor track has been
reworked to offer rapid customer design modification
and more efficient fabrication
Watch the MunchMan® in Action
The MunchMan® II twin-steel belt conveyor employs a unique stacked conveyor arrangement at
the lowercurve and through the incline and chip discharge of the system. The primary and secondary
belts run in opposite directions to grab hold of chips and securely carry them up steep inclines,
eliminating the risk of conveyor jams caused by chip balls tumbling back down the conveyor.
"The physical effect of two cleated moving belts compressing and moving the difficult long stringy
chips and larger chip volumes is dramatic when compared to traditional single belt conveying
systems," says Scott Bramow, Director of Engineering.
The MunchMan® II can be designed to effectively fit into most of today’s CNC lathes and machining
centers, and has little or no effect on the space required vs. traditional single belt chip conveyors.
