Generally, a chain is bent in transverse route only. Nevertheless, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain could be structurally bent not merely horizontally but in addition vertically. It’s employed for a conveyor line which moves vertically and improvements in route.
X Style Chains for Trolleys, and Electrical power & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are employed 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 employed as a trolley conveyor with only one rail.
The bottom right photo shows an X-type Chain used for a electrical power & free conveyor. An additional rail is installed to receive the load for higher transfer capability.
A 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 could 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 employed for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It can be widely utilised 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 used for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It really is widely made use of in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.
FH Form Chain for Freeyor
An FH Form Chain is made use of 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 Kind Chain is utilised for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain is usually 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 could be bent horizontally and can also move on a slight incline. It’s made by forging, and a recess for hooking a dog is formed at the center of each link.
