Usually, a chain is bent in transverse direction only. However, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain may be structurally bent not simply horizontally but additionally vertically. It’s utilized for any conveyor line which moves vertically and changes in path.
X Variety Chains for Trolleys, and Power & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are made use of for trolleys, and electrical 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 any energy & 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 is usually 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 utilized for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It can be widely applied 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 is actually 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 Kind Chain is applied 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 utilized 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 a 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 usually bent horizontally and can also move on a slight incline. It can be made by forging, and a recess for hooking a dog is formed at the center of each link.
