Individual chain design and special attachments for drive and conveyor applications in the packaging industry

The packaging industry is driven by various trends, such as seamless end-to-end processes, sustainable packaging solutions or complex customization solutions. With growing demand for flexibility, maximum availability of the packaging lines is required at the same time. With high cycle times, every failure leads to a severe disruption of downstream supply stages. To meet these requirements, our roller chain systems offer maximum reliability and high flexibility in the design with individual conveying elements such as angled or flat joint plates and attachment pins.


Whether product protection with cardboard boxes, plastic packaging, wooden boxes, foils, blisters, bags or other packaging materials: In the packaging industry, timing and speed are the decisive factors. For the packaging processes to run smoothly and with high throughput, operators of high-performance packaging lines need perfectly matched drive and conveyor chains. Even our standard chain programme offers our customers in the packaging industry a broad range and depth of variants of roller chains according to ISO 606, double pitch roller chains according to ISO 1275, GL roller chains with straight plates as well as accumulator chains for various requirements. All chains offer a high level of wear protection and can also be supplied with additional corrosion protection if needed.


Furthermore, customized chain design for the respective application is also one of our strengths: With individually designed parameters such as chain size, coating or specific development of special attachments, we provide customized solutions for demanding drive and conveyor applications. This way we guarantee a safe drive or transport and thus optimal economic efficiency of your packaging line.

Perfectly matched drive and conveyor chains for smooth packaging transport with high throughput – also available as a maintenance-free Marathon version

Our roller chains, double pitch roller chains, GL roller chains as well as accumulation chains are also available in the particularly durable and maintenance-free Marathon version. Your advantage: Thanks to the combination of a porous, oil-soaked sintered bushing and a specially coated pin, this type of chain is self-lubricating. Marathon chains are particularly suitable where relubrication is not possible or not desired. Therefore the chains’ freedom from maintenance ensures low maintenance costs in many application areas and thus high cost-effectiveness. Marathon chains are also available as stainless version Marathon RF, as FDA-compliant version and for operating temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius.


Take advantage of the extensive experience of our consultants to determine the optimal design of the required chain system based on the specific operating parameters of your drive and conveyor systems. Together with our engineering department, we will find the optimal solution for you – technically and economically.
