Steel Belt Conveyors

Transfer or Elevate a Broad Range of Materials.

Steel belt conveyors (available in open or completely sealed, oil-tight frames) efficiently move your dry and wet metal scrap, chips and parts. Choose from hinged or bedded pan styles with plain, perforated or dimpled belting.

Oscillating Conveyors

Convey Horizontally with Vibration.

Durable springs deliver a steady, quiet flow and discharge. Troughs come in square or flared styles with a choice of smooth or optional raised-dimpled Rigidized® steel surface. Installs easily alongside presses or in a pit.

Pivot Belt Conveyors

Dislodge Sticky Stamping Scrap.

The unique design of the pivoting sections and the raised-dimpled Rigidized® steel belt ensure no carryover of sticky, oily pieces. (Plain belting is also available.) Its raised pusher flights keep material flowing as the seamless, one-piece pan collects waste fluid for safe disposal or recycling.

ScrapVeyor II Conveyors

Collect, Transfer and Elevate All Types of Scrap in Liquid-Tight Unit.

This fully automated conveyor features a leak-proof construction that retains 100% of your cutting fluids. Larger rollers keep the chain on track and the rotating flight cams provide less friction for cooler, longer operation. Its V or flat trough features an abrasion-resistant, self-cleaning, raised-dimpled Rigidized® flight surface. Use in combination with a distribution system to maximize your operation’s load-out efficiency.

Harpoon Conveyors

Efficiently Convey Wet or Dry Metal Chips Or Turnings, Bushy Wads, Fines And Tramp Metal.

This conveyor’s liquid-tight trough construction is ideal for high-volume coolant flow applications. The free-floating ram design and abrasion-resistant steel liner minimize maintenance. Install the Harpoon easily below the floor (cast in place or pit-mounted) or specify an elevating design.

Magnetic Conveyors

Transfer Ferrous Scrap Metal And Parts Without Carryover.

Convey wet or dry ferrous chips, stamping slugs, stamping scrap or parts with no carryover. All models feature a rugged, longlife stainless steel slider bed with a smooth or raised-dimpled Rigidized® steel surface. Permanent ceramic magnets are standard; rare earth magnets are optional for heavyduty applications.

Shuttle Conveyors

Load-Out Stamping Scrap With Even Distribution To Trailers Or Railcars.

This transversing, bi-directional steel belt conveyor’s continuous, back-and-forth operation provides even scrap distribution between dual large containers – something swivel chute systems cannot achieve. Automatic level sensors warn operator when the trailer is full.

Pneumatic Conveyors:
Blower Systems

Use Positive Air Pressure Or Vacuum System To Transport Wet Or Dry Metal Chips.

Model 525 Chip Fans transfer dry aluminum chips to scrap trailers. The positive air system uses a PD pump or blower that can be fed by rotary air locks or eductors for multiple chip inputs. Negative Pressure Vacuum Systems pick up wet or dry chips at multiple points and deliver them to a central processing system. Cyclone Receivers reduce chip velocity as they are conveyed through the pneumatic system.

Pneumatic Conveyors:
Vacuum Systems

Eliminate The Need For Plant Air Or Separate Compressors To Move Chips And Unmanageable Metal Scrap.

This system’s powerful vacuum blower(s) delivers metal chips to a wringer, briquetter or load-out area with ease and efficiency. It even moves hard-to-manage scrap sizes and shapes to a Horizontal Axis Crusher. Installs in tight spaces and reconfigures easily if you add machining centers.
