The next-generation MunchMan Conveyor provides a successful system to manage long, stringy, and nested metal chips generated from high-speed turning and milling operations. Jorgensen’s latest system improves on a uniquely effective chip and scrap removal conveyor for the machine tool industry, with a patent-pending design that efficiently and cost-effectively eliminates expensive machine downtime. The design enables the conveyor to fit most of today’s CNC lathes and machining centers, with little or no additional space required compared to traditional single-belt chip conveyors.


The MunchMan uses primary and secondary belts installed at the lower curve and through the incline and chip discharge areas of the system. These belts run in unison to grab chips, compress them and carry them securely up steep inclines. This design eliminates the risk of conveyor jams that can occur when chip balls tumble at the lower curve or jam in the conveyor incline section.


The exclusive UVS Ecologic Conveyor Control with Jam Manager functionality enables unattended automatic clearing of minor conveyor jams. On applications that involve cutting oil and coolant, Jorgensen can build MunchMan with a coolant reservoir. For proper fit, Jorgensen custom fabricates every conveyor to the individual customer’s machine.
