Maintenance-free chains

Maintenance-free chains. New generation.

Wippermann presents a new generation of maintenance-free high-performance chains for sensitive production areas. They are individually configurable and enable precise drive solutions, for example with FDA approval, in high-temperature environments or permanent water resistance.


The latest generation of our high-performance chains offers an even wider range of applications and is characterized by the high modularity of the components, which enables the configuration of the chain for customised drive solutions with optimum performance that are precisely geared to the customers’ requirements. In particular the new polymer bearing TRIGLEIT II supplements the range of applications in corrosive environment, such as in the case of permanent water contact.

The new maintenance-free chains by Wippermann testify to our high technological standards in terms of wear and fatigue resistance as well as corrosion and temperature resistance. The use of high-grade steels, environmentally-friendly and food legislation-compliant functional coatings as well as innovative polymer bearings form the basis for customised drive solutions which cannot be lubricated for technical or economic reasons.

Our six high-performance version cover a wide range of operational performance. In particular the new MARATHON RF with TRIGLEIT II polymer bearings ensures exceptionally long service life in dry running operation and permanent contact with water.

In addition to the pre-configured chains, our modular system also provides for the individual configuration of maintenance-free chains according to specific requirements. For every application, Wippermann offers high-performance chains that are suited for use under high mechanical load and in high temperatures, in permanent water contact and in environments that are subject to hygiene and food regulations.

The benefits of our maintenance-free chains at a glance:

  • high-temperature applications up to + 200 ° C
  • lubricant-free
  • FDA approval
