Iwis Offers Accumulation Chain for Conveying Systems
July 31, 2017
For logistics and material handling applications, chain specialist Iwis Drive Systems offers a comprehensive range of accumulation chains that have proven exceptionally efficient and durable – and therefore economical – in numerous comparisons. Accumulation chains are used for conveying, accumulating and separating a wide range of different goods.
As a rule, these chains run continually, driven through the track rollers on the chains’ outside, which also support the chain in the profile. The conveyed goods rest on the transport or accumulation rollers, which are fitted between the chain links. Accumulation chains from iwis feature special low-friction rollers that ensure an extremely efficient operation of the chain and therefore the entire conveying system. The low-friction rollers also allow easy positioning of the transported material at any point along the transport path and remove the need to start and stop the chain, which could influence product orientation and agitate content.
The accumulation chains are available in different versions, including versions with offset accumulation rollers for optimized load distribution, maintenance-free Megalife accumulation chains with nickel-plated plates and pins for lubricant-free operation, accumulation chains with protection for fingers and small parts for increased machine and personal safety, and side-bow accumulation chains with offset accumulation rollers for conveying systems with extremely small bend radii.
