MunchMan II adds EcoLogic control

Mequon, Wisconsin – The MunchMan II is an improved release of a chip and scrap removal conveyor to manage the long, stringy, and bird’s nest chips generated by high speed turning and milling operations.
The unit employs a twin-stacked conveyor arrangement at the lower curve and through the incline and chip discharge of the system. The primary and secondary belts run in opposite directions to grab hold of chips, compact them, and securely carry them up steep inclines, eliminating the risk of conveyor jams caused by chip balls tumbling back down the conveyor.
A patent-pending drive system allows just one gear motor to run both drive shafts.
The UVS EcoLogic Conveyor Control with JamManager automatically reverses to clear jams. It provides constant load monitoring to protect conveyor motor and drive train components from damage in a conveyor-jam condition where excessive torque on the conveyor may occur. Automatic stop/reverse/stop/forward sequencing attempts to automatically clear the jam a predetermined number of times without any required operator intervention, making it suitable for unattended machining operations.
The MunchMan II can be designed to fit into most modern CNC lathes and machining centers with little or no effect on the space required compared to traditional single-belt chip conveyors.
