Special chains: Multi-functionality and the freedom to construct own designs

Roller chains have a wide application range and are therefore frequently used in machine and plant construction, not merely as drive and gear chains, but also as lantern gears, hoisting and conveyor chains as well as in special applications with different attachments for control, transport, and conveyance purposes.

 

By means of suitable attachments roller chains offer special functionalities. The clear build-up of a roller chain enables the designer to freely develop a variety of individual constructions.

By combining punched and bended parts, machined components, welded constructions, plastic and sintered elements, springs and standard units, which can easily be attached to the chain in exactly defined distances, a large variety of special chains can be designed.
