Generally, a chain is bent in transverse direction only. Even so, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain can be structurally bent not merely horizontally but additionally vertically. It’s used to get a conveyor line which moves vertically and modifications in direction.
X Sort Chains for Trolleys, and Energy & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are utilized for trolleys, and power & free conveyors. They are drop-forged rivetless chains featuring high strength, lightweight and easy removal of components. The bottom left photo shows an X-type Chain made use of as a trolley conveyor with only one rail.
The bottom right photo shows an X-type Chain applied for a electrical power & free conveyor. An additional rail is installed to receive the load for higher transfer capability.
A electrical power & free conveyor generally has a so-called stop and go function to connect and disconnect conveyed materials with and from the chain, so that the conveyed materials may be temporarily stopped, mixed and stored.
Three kinds of X-type Chains are available according to required strength.
Z-type Chain for Light Load Trolley Conveyors
A Z-type Chain for trolley conveyors is made use of for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It’s widely made use of in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.
Z-type Chain for Light Load Trolley Conveyors
A Z-type Chain for trolley conveyors is made use of for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It really is widely utilized in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.
FH Kind Chain for Freeyor
An FH Type Chain is employed for the same purpose as an X-type Chain and Z-type Chain. While X-type Chain is designed for heavy loads and Z-type Chain is for light loads, FH Sort Chain is applied for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain may be vertically bent only slightly, FH-type Chain is often bent both vertically and horizontally, which makes it suitable for any conveyor line moving vertically. We manufacture three kinds of FH-type Chains different in pitch.
Towline Low-Selec-Tow Chain
A towline conveyor has a mechanism to convey dollies caught by a chain buried in the floor. Our chain for towline conveyor is called LST chain (Low-selec-tow chain).
LST Chain is often bent horizontally and can also move on a slight incline. It is actually made by forging, and a recess for hooking a dog is formed at the center of each link.
