Scrap Removal Conveyor

June 20, 2018
Jorgensen's scrap removal conveyor uses a single drive running both belts for efficient operation.

The MunchMan II Conveyor is an improved release of a unique and very effective chip and scrap removal conveyor for the machine tool industry. The MunchMan II is proving to be the most successful way to manage the long stringy and bird’s nest chips generated by high speed turning and milling operations on the market today.  

It employs a unique twin-belt conveyor arrangement at the lower curve and through the incline and chip discharge areas of the system. The primary and secondary belts run in unison to grab hold of chips, compress them and securely carry them up steep inclines, eliminating the risk of conveyor jams caused by chip balls tumbling at the lower curve or jamming in the conveyor incline section.
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.
  • 1.5” and 2.5” pitch belt sizes available
  • Design employs a unique dual, stacked belt arrangement at the lower curve, through the incline and at the chip discharge
  • Single drive running both belts for efficient operation
  • Ideally suited to oil & energy, automotive, aerospace and other high production, high metal removal rate applications where stringy and balls of chips can be typical
  • 2 types of design configurations to choose from 


  • Full speed control functionality with current overload sensor using our UVS Ecologic Control with Jam Manager programming safety device
  • Conveyors can be built with coolant reservoir for machine tool application where cutting oil and coolant is involved
  • Drainage options include coolant drain holes or slots to suit application
