MC3 provides turnkey, plant-wide scrap conveyor systems. A scrap conveyor eliminates metalworking waste from the production line. At MC3 Manufacturing, we offer large and small scrap conveyors with various features, options, and specifications to suit every metalworking application. Scrap or part conveyors are used in various metalworking processes and help keep the facility cleaner, safer, and more efficient.
Various manufacturing processes rely on scrap conveyors to gather and eliminate scrap leftover from metalworking processes. Scrap conveyors transport scrap or remnants from stamping and other metalworking processes. They can be placed in manufacturing cells like shearing and punching cells, and large scrap conveyor systems can be integrated into the production floor using a housing that mounts below the floor to eliminate scrap from large presses.
Small and large scrap removal conveyors can transport aluminum and steel scrap. Small scrap conveyors are usually placed close to the machine or tool to collect scrap as it is discarded from the system. The conveyor moves scrap to a bin to be emptied by personnel later.
Large scrap conveyors require significant floor space and are typically integrated into the shop floor. They are used for collecting scrap from the press and moving it to a discharge location. Large scrap conveyors can discharge material to multiple bins, allowing the press to run longer without stopping it to empty the bin.
MC3 Manufacturing offers scrap conveyors that are a turnkey, facility-wide solution with the ability to withstand industrial manufacturing conditions with considerable lifespans. Our hinged steel belt conveyors can move small and large scrap. Our conveyors offer smart monitoring with a human-machine interface (HMI) and control via programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Our scrap conveyor construction process takes a wide range of requirements into account. It’s designed to incorporate chain widths from 12″ wide to 96″ max. The conveyor can be provided with a variety of chain belt pitches from 2.5″ to 9″ with wheels/rollers running – high-carbon and wear-resistant steels. The chain pulls up to 25,000 lbs., so it can handle large scrap and heavy loads.
MC3 Manufacturing takes pride in our collaborative discovery process which allows us to create solutions that are tailored to your specifications. We can powder coat the conveyors and provide various custom features for your application, allowing your scrap conveyor to seamlessly interface with your existing equipment. We offer support legs, overload protection, and chutes. We offer rollers and wheels in 3- or 4-inch diameters on case-hardened rails.
MC3 Manufacturing’s scrap conveyors come with the following options:
Our metal scrap conveyors feature open-style construction for easy maintenance. The belt is made of heavy-duty hinged steel, so it’s appropriate for heavy scrap. The conveyors are also designed for interchangeability with leading belt manufacturers.
MC3 Manufacturing’s scrap conveyors are designed for heavy-duty applications with extended life in harsh conditions. Our conveyors provide numerous benefits compared to other brands, as they prioritize safety by minimizing operator contact with scrap and showcase an innovative design capable of handling problematic or loose scrap effectively.
Moreover, our conveyors can handle challenging conditions such as surge or batch loading and inclines without overloading or jamming, while also reducing premature wear and maintenance. With durable heavy-duty steel belt conveyors, removable scrap trays, bottom trays, and side access covers, as well as abrasion-resistant steel reinforcement and take-up guards, our conveyors offer durability, longevity, and decreased maintenance time.
Operations with large volumes of metal scrap need an efficient way to remove this waste from the facility and into the proper disposal area. We supply the answer with our versatile conveyor solutions.
The high-capacity collection system is ideal for plant expansions and new factories, and it’s also well-suited for metal stamping and machining center scrap.
We know every operation runs differently, so we adapt each machine to its intended purpose. Our team will work with you to get the most optimized conveyor for your facility, help you improve your efficiency, cut costs, and increase your output.
Some of the common applications for scrap conveyors include:
Under-floor scrap conveyors provide efficient scrap removal from the whole plant. An out-of-sight network narrows your on-floor output to only those items you need, which creates a cleaner production line. Improve your efficiency, cut costs, and increase your output.
An integrated parts conveyor can also help keep the production line clean, is leakproof, increases productivity in the pressroom, and is low maintenance. It can convey everything from small aluminum to heavy steel scraps, reduces forklift traffic to minimize injury, and can handle a diverse range of materials without taking up significant floor space.
Scrap conveyors make removing scrap from the production line in a metalworking facility safe and efficient. MC3 Manufacturing offers several types of scrap conveyors with various options and features. We serve a range of metalworking applications and help your plant stay productive, clean, and safe.
Whole plant scrap conveyor systems are engineered, designed, and manufactured to suit your scrap handling requirements. Contact MC3 to discuss your project, and we’ll get the ball rolling.
