Abstract: It is necessary to use an efficient chip removal system to increase productivity on the shop floor. Conventional conveyor systems such as belt conveyors are being used in industries. The Belt conveyors used in the computer numerical control (CNC) machining firms, remove the metal chips falling from the machine. A machine shop is operated on a small scale certainly has limitations to adopt these chip removal systems economically and precisely. In order to simplify the process, decided to develop an efficient and economical solution for the chip removal process. The spring type chip conveyor is designed to overcome the problems faced while using a belt conveyor and also to remove the metal chips from the machine in a faster and cheaper rate.
