Transport of metal shavings - Uddeholm

Screw conveyor for chips


In Uddeholms AB’s machining hall, tool steel is cut and machined. These processes create chips and shavings that have to be handled.

The usual solution is to use slat conveyors. The problem is that the tool steel is hard and abrasive, which means high maintenance costs and downtime during repairs.


We developed a solution based on screw conveyors, which eliminates the considerable maintenance requirements. The conveyors are available in various sizes depending on the amount of shavings that need to be handled.
