The Govoni screw system is suitable for transporting any morphology of metallic chip (powdery, short, medium-long and flowing, tangled and bundled) and any kind of metal (aluminium, brass, bronze, copper, various steels, cast iron, various alloys).
With the screw technology, Govoni is able to equip machine tools with compact evacuators that take up less space in the machine and are low maintenance compared to traditional evacuators.
The rotation of the screw generates a reduction of the volume of medium, long and bundled swarf resulting in an increased quantity of the swarf in the container.
Screw conveyor on transfer machine.The application of screw evacuators to machine tools allows for all the advantages of screw technology and limits the dimensions of the outside of the machine tool: the vertical collector that expels the swarf from the machine makes it possible to save both the space usually occupied by inclined sections of the traditional evacuators, as well as to avoid the space needed for the extraction of the evacuator during maintenance.
The universality of the Govoni screw system, suitable for carrying any swarf morphology and type of metal, goes well with the new models with multi-axis machining centres that perform various types of processing and for which it is difficult to choose the most appropriate evacuation system because of the wide range of swarf morphology they can generate.
The high reliability, the absence of wear and tear and maintenance make Govoni screw technology the most suitable to new high-speed machines that work fully and continuously 24 hours a day without human control.
This need for maximum automation is also fulfilled by the relevant reduction in swarf volume generated during transport, which enhances the performance of the evacuators and allows for less frequent withdrawals from collection containers and thus less time devoted to this task. The protection on the drop chute of the vertical manifold can reduce risk of contact with the swarf, following all the national rules and regulations for the implementation of new EU directives on safety.
