MPI Beltless Magnetic Conveyors (BLM)

MPI's BLM conveyors are built to be rugged, reliable and robust and efficiently move ferrous metal, stampings, turnings, chips, fasteners, scrap and more, wherever you need it to go.

How BLM Conveyors Work

Powerful permanent magnets, located below a nonmagnetic stainless steel slider bed, transport parts without fail and without downtime, even when faced with the most challenging applications. As the magnets move, objects travel along the conveyor and into a bin for easy removal or transport.

Illustration of the components that go into mpi's blm conveyors and how they work
Diagram: How MPI BLM Conveyors work

MPI’s Beltless Magnetic Conveyors are built for maintenance-free operation. With no external moving components except for the drive motor assembly, the liquid-tight sealed conveyor housing can be totally submerged in machine reservoir tanks. An internal self-adjusting take-up system eliminates the need for time-consuming fine-tuning of mechanics.

The conveyor’s sealed design prevents scrap from entering and damaging internal components. MPI offers BLM conveyors in a variety of sizes with many design options, and can be supplied with ancillary components, such as feeders and hoppers, to provide a complete material handling system.

Note: MPI also offers complete demolition of old equipment and installation services with purchase of their BLM conveyers.

MPI BLM Features:

  • Wear and impact resistant slider bed: Minimum 12 gauge stainless steel slider bed (7 gauge for over 18” wide or manganese option).
  • Optimized for minimal magnetic drag : Magnets enclosed in UHMW wrapper, internal stainless magnet supports and welded stainless motor mount.
  • Automatic chain tensioning: Internal takeup maintains tension for life of unit and is enclosed to keep debris out of moving parts.
  • Best in class track system: Welded structural steel angle and stainless in convex and concave (high wear areas) without UHMW track or laminated light gauge steel channel.
  • American made drive packages

MPI Shaker Conveyors

MPI shakers are specifically designed for slug and part removal on mechanical power presses where a single tray or multiple trays are located under the stamping die between parallels. A number of electric and pneumatic models with various capacities are available including floor mounted high capacity shaker conveyors.

Patented MPI Shaker in Action

M-10000 Electric Shaker Conveyor

M-10000 is a complete central scrap removal system custom designed for your plant operations.

MPI’s M-10000 Series High-Capacity Floor Mounted Electric Shaker Conveyor (US Patented) is designed to transfer scrap metal, bulk products, or bulk materials reliably over long horizontal distances. The horizontal motion conveyor is designed to transfer at rates of over 10,000 pounds per hour and distances of hundreds of feet. The shaker conveyor features a formed steel pan that is driven by a single drive at a smooth, low frequency to convey materials in a horizontal motion.

Rugged enough to be used in applications for scrap conveyors, including scrap removal conveyors, press scrap conveyors, and scrap removal systems, the system reliably transfers the most destructive materials (i.e., scrap metal, castings, and rocks). However, the shaker conveyor's movement is gentle enough in their movement to transfer potato chips, nuts, or biscuits without breaking them.

The M-10000 Series is often integrated as part of a complete turnkey system that includes other components, such as incline conveyors, other horizontal motion conveyors, and controls. In the stamping industry, these make up one component of an underground scrap system or central scrap handling system used to collect and transfer scrap metal from stamping presses.

M-10000 Features:

  • Reliable Maintenance Free Conveyance
    • Low frequency, smooth horizontal motion conveyor single pan systems reliably transfer scrap or parts in a horizontal motion.
    • Metal on metal contact points are eliminated with maintenance free, Rubber Suspension Technology (RST) bearings  Supporting the pan and connecting the drive. RST bearings require no grease or maintenance.
    • Uniform pans contain scrap or parts and reliably transfer them from conveyor to conveyor.
  • Indestructible Pans
    • Steel pans are more rigid and take less damage from scrap or parts compared to other conveyor designs
    • Jams caused by scrap or parts are eliminated because pans are formed from a single sheet of steel, creating a uniform surface for the length of the conveyor
    • If damaged, pans can typically be repaired or replaced in-house,reducing the need for outside vendors to help get equipment back up and running.
  • Flexible, Modular Design
    • Flexible configurations and options allow users to optimize and configure the system for their application.
    • The pans, drive, and pan supports are modular to scale up and down for each application and easy to replace should damage occur, maximizing uptime.
  • Safer Operation
    • Pinch points are eliminated with the single pan design and the short stroke of the drive makes the system safer to work around compared to other conveyor designs.
  • High ROI
    • Lower maintenance costs and higher uptime deliver a quick return on your investment.
  • Turnkey Support
    • MPI's team has the expertise to support each major step of the integration process, including onsite assessments, drawing review, component integration, scheduling for installation, installation supervision, and installation.
