Tips – How to Solve Some Problems in Chip Conveyor?

A chip conveyor is a machine that is mainly used to collect various metal and non-metal waste generated by the machine and transfer the waste to the collection vehicle. Our many customers will choose chip conveyor for their CNC machines. Because it can easy to collect some metal waste.

We often use this chip conveyor, so we will meet some problems. And how to do it? We collect some problems from my customers and give some suggestions as below:

1. The motor does not run after the chip conveyor is installed for the first time.

Solution: Check if the motor power input voltage is normal and there is no virtual connection.

2. The motor is idling and the conveyor chain version is not running.

Solution: In order to extend the service life of the motor, we use a protector for the reducer, open the chain box and gently tighten the protector screw until the conveyor chain runs. (Note: Do not tighten the protector screw too much, otherwise the protector will lose the role of protecting the motor.)

3. Long-term use of the chip conveyor appears elongated and loose.

Solution: Adjust the drive shaft according to the actual situation and adjust the bolt until it is normal.

4. Debris stuck in the chain during the chip removal process will not work.

Solution: If this problem occurs, you need to stop the work of the chip conveyor immediately, remove the debris stuck in the chain plate, and consult the manufacturer in time.

5. The chip chain plate is broken.

Solution: This situation is mainly due to the overload of the chain plate, and the geared motor is still damaged by normal operation. The main solution is to relax the mechanical overload protector, so that it can work normally. And the overload protector slips when it encounters an overload condition, so as not to break the chain plate. Another method is to install an electronic overload protector to set a current within the normal range. When the current is greater than this value, the breaker is disconnected, so that the chain plate is not broken.

6. Iron filings are often stuck and cannot be discharged normally.

Solution:This is mainly due to the fact that the spiral iron filings are too long. Sometimes an iron filing can reach 3-5 meters, and the filaments are connected one after another. The main solution is that all angled places that the chain plates pass through must be made into an arc shape, which cannot be born at a hard angle, it is beneficial to the discharge of iron filings. And a chipboard is installed at the lower part of the chip discharge port to prevent the iron chips from getting caught under the chain plate and causing the stuck.

7. The geared motor often burns out and the service life is too short.

Solution: In general, the normal life of the geared motor is 3-5 years. However, there are some cases that are often damaged. The main solution is to install an electronic overload protector. The damage to the motor is mainly due to excessive current. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the power of the motor and the chip conveyor must match, such as the power is too small is also one of the reasons for damage.

8. Spindle heating.

Solution: Firstly, we need to find the hot things, then judge which end of bearing is hot. And rotate the spindle to judge if the spindle is tight when it is rotating. If the bearing of chip conveyor causes the spindle heating, we should change the bearing or clean the spindle bearing. Also can add some lubricating oil to the bearing. (Note: we should use kerosene or fuel to clean the bearing, then evenly apply high-temperature resistant lubricant oil.)
