Auger Assist Conveyor for Auger Driven Machine Tools

The Auger Assist, a hinged steel belt conveyor for machine tool models equipped with auger evacuation systems.

Many of today’s machines are sold with a chip auger and cone/flume as the primary chip evacuation method. As a result, their relatively low discharge height fills small chip hoppers quickly. To eliminate the need for frequent hopper unloads, Jorgensen offers the Auger Assist conveyor. This mobile conveyor’s standard 48-inch discharge height allows for the use of full-size barrel or hoppers. The machining center can then handle a higher chip volume with decreased labor for chip hopper management. Auger Assist also features a coolant collection area and a drain plug to reclaim coolant.

Several inches of load chute height adjustment allow the chip auger conveyor to adapt to various machine tool models. Adjust the metal chute 90 degrees in either direction to allow for a left, right, or forward discharge to fit the available floor space. This compact mobile conveyor is easily maneuverable for use on multiple machines. Due to the small size and lockable swivel wheels, mobile conveyors can easily be moved for maintenance or cleaning.

The Auger Assist’s pre-engineered design gives it a low cost and quick delivery times. For added value, Auger Assist can easily integrate into larger chip processing systems.

  • Increased discharge height allows for collection of a higher chip volume, decreasing labor for chip removal
  • Several inches of load chute height adjustment allows the unit to adapt to many different machine tool models
  • AR400 abrasion resistant steel and through-hardened components in all high-wear areas
  • Compact and maneuverable with a 74”(L) x 25”(W) x 70”(H) footprint
  • Baffled load chute can be rotated 90 degrees in either direction
  • Pre-engineered design for a low cost and quick delivery
  • Due to its small size and swivel wheels, this machine can easily be moved for maintenance or cleaning
  • Works well with steel, aluminum, and other common metals

The auger assist conveyor is a pre-engineered cost-effective solution that can be adjusted to fit most machine tools. Custom design options are available such as increased discharge height, custom load chute dimensions, extreme-duty durability, and more. Contact our conveyor experts!
