Enhanced LNS Turbo MH140 filtering chip conveyor is ideal for sliding headstock and multi-tasking machining centers that produce mixed chips of any size and geometry from a variety of materials including aluminum, brass, cast iron, and more.
Using the combination of a hinge belt to handle large and stringy chips and a new dual layer technology filter box that removes fines while filtering coolant to 140 microns, MH140 prolongs coolant life, reduces tool wear, protects coolant pumps from damage, and reduces coolant tank maintenance.
The chip conveyor’s filtering box is self-cleaning during operation making it virtually maintenance free. A patented Live Link feature allows fine chips to leave the cutting area between each belt flight, so chips cannot accumulate over time.
MH140 fits most machine coolant tanks, and the small footprint – no larger than a standard conveyor – saves valuable floor space. A unique frame design using high-strength materials enables the conveyor to withstand extreme loads, torsional forces and abrasion for trouble-free operation and long life.
Related Glossary Terms
Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
