Machine Tools Application: DRMS Series Hybrid Motor Starter
A chip conveyor system is very common on CNC machine tools where it can be part of the machine or it can be offered as an accessory. The main function of a chip conveyor system is to remove the cutting excess material from the machine tool. A chip conveyor is commonly driven using a small to medium size three-phase motor, and the conveyor control system is generally mounted next to the conveyor. Reliability is a prime concern on these systems, since repair downtime could be extremely costly. Solid state relays and contactors are a great solution for this application, being more compact than the equivalent EMR solution and having higher reliability.
