A new hinged steel or scraper conveyor – purchase:
4 000 EUR

The result shows that, if we forget about the electricity cost and common maintenance, after installation of a hinged steel or scraper conveyor, the chip conveyor is, in fact, paid for after approx. 200 working days (approx. 10 months). Then, it only brings you savings, or (if you like) profit created by the employees due to the fact that they do not have to collect the chips from the machining device.
