On the whole, a chain is bent in transverse route only. Nonetheless, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain is often structurally bent not merely horizontally but additionally vertically. It truly is made use of to get a conveyor line which moves vertically and adjustments in path.
X Style Chains for Trolleys, and Energy & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are made use of 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 to get a 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 is often 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 utilised for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It really is widely employed in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.

FH Variety Chain for Freeyor
An FH Style Chain is used 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 Type Chain is utilized for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain may be vertically bent only slightly, FH-type Chain might be 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 can 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.
