jamming problems. It’s well-suited to turning and milling opera- tions where long, stringy and heavy chip volumes are gener- ated. Vieira contacted a Jorgensen sales representative and started the process of putting the Munchman II chip conveyor into all of Amsted Rail’s Muratec twin- spindle turning centers from Murata Machinery USA Inc. (Charlotte, NC). For Amsted Rail, Jorgensen Convey- ors designed the coolant tank and chip conveyors for the Muratec MW 400 and MW 200 twin-spindle turning centers with the chip conveyor sitting down in the coolant tank to allow better chip carry out. The MW 400 has a 15" (381- mm) chuck, and the MW 200 has a 10" (254-mm) chuck. The twin-spindle CNC lathes provide signifi cant fl exibility for machine utilization by allowing machin- ing for two identical processes, or for fi rst and second operations. The new confi guration of the Jor- gensen conveyors corrected a fl aw in the positioning of the old conveyors, which were attached to the machine above the coolant tank. This allowed a lot of chips and debris to fall into the coolant tank. “We normally run 24/7, so the coolant tank would fi ll with chips and have to be cleaned every three months,” Vieira said. “We would lose 96 hours of production per machine each year to clean our coolant tanks during regular working hours. With the new arrangement, we reduced our coolant tank cleaning from once every three months to once a year. We are able to clean our coolant tanks during our normal shutdown weeks, so we don’t lose any production time for coolant tank cleaning. Only having to clean the tanks once a year means we have also reduced our coolant tank hazardous waste removal by 75%,” said Vieira. The Jorgensen chip conveyors also came equipped with a Jam Manager control. “What this control does for us is,
