Conveyor for Auger Driven Machine Tools
The Auger Assist is a hinged steel belt conveyor to fit many machine tool makes and models equipped with auger evacuation systems.
Many of today’s machine tools are sold with a chip auger and cone/flume as the primary chip evacuation method. As a result, they have a relatively low discharge height which can fill small chip hoppers quickly. To eliminate the need for frequent hopper unloads, Jorgensen offers the Auger Assist conveyor. The Auger Assist’s standard 48-inch discharge height allows for the use of larger chip bins or additional conveyor systems. This allows the machine to handle a higher chip volume and decreases labor involved with chip hopper management. It also features a coolant collection area and a drain plug to reclaim coolant.
Several inches of load chute height adjustment allows the unit to adapt to many different machine tool models. The metal chute can also be rotated 90 degrees in both directions to allow for a left, right, or straight forward discharge to fit your available floor space. It is compact and maneuverable. Due to the small size and lockable swivel wheels, this machine can easily be moved for maintenance or cleaning. Little to no set up is required.
The Auger Assist’s pre-engineered design gives it a low cost and quick delivery times. 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.
