Chip Auger

   
Automatically remove chips from the machine

This auger-style chip conveyor automatically removes chips from the machine, while compressing them and wringing out the coolant. It is ideal for both short runs and high-production environments, eliminating the downtime required for manual chip removal. The auger can be activated via M-code or directly from the control pendant, and there are settings to control the interval and duration of the auger cycle for automatic operation. Smart-sensing technology automatically reverses the auger if a jam occurs.

  • Compresses chips, saving space in the chip bin
  • Lift angle minimizes coolant carryout
  • Automatically reverses if a jam occurs
  • Activated via M-code, or from the control pendant
  • Energy efficient via control settings for automatic operation

Chip Auger

Our auger-style chip conveyor automatically removes chips from the machine, while compressing them and wringing out the coolant. The chip chute’s lift angle minimizes coolant carryout, and the 33" (838 mm) chip ejection height allows the use of large chip bins.

  • Automatically reverses if a jam occurs
  • Activated via M-code, or from the control pendant
  • Settings control the interval and duration of operation
  • Automatic operation increases energy efficiency
  • Lift angle minimizes coolant carryout
  • Compresses chips, saving space in the chip bin

Settings That Control Automatic Auger Operation

  • Setting 114 CONVEYOR CYCLE controls the interval at which the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor) will start automatic operation during a cycle.
  • Setting 115 CONVEYOR ON-TIME controls the duration the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor) will run during automatic operation.
  • Setting 196 CONVEYOR SHUTOFF specifies the amount of time to wait without activity prior to stopping the auger.

NOTE: The operator doors must be closed to operate the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor).

Program Auger Operation

  • M31 starts the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor) in the forward direction to remove chips. 
    • Once started, and the machine is in cycle, the auger will run for the time specified in Setting 115 CONVEYOR ON-TIME, and then shut off.
    • Once started, and the machine is in cycle, the auger will restart after the time in Setting 114 CONVEYOR CYCLE, and run for the time specified in Setting 115.
    • While the machine is in cycle, you can start the auger by pressing the [CHIP FWD] button on the keyboard. Once started, Settings 114 and 115 have the same effect as described above.
    • If Setting 114 is set to zero, automatic auger operation will not occur.
       
  • M33 stops all automatic auger operation while in cycle.
    • Manually stop the auger while in cycle by pressing the [CHIP STOP] button on the keyboard. This stops all automatic auger operation while in cycle.

Manual Operation

  • Press the [CHIP FWD] button on the keyboard to start the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor) in the forward direction to remove chips. 
  • Press the [CHIP REV] button on the keyboard to start the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor) in the reverse direction to clear a jam.
  • Press the [CHIP STOP] button on the keyboard to stop the auger (multi-auger, or belt-style conveyor).
