Chain conveyors are conveyor systems which are designed for moving large, bulky or irregular shaped items through a production line.
Uses for Chain Conveyors
Chain conveyors are generally used where transportation is required for heavy loads and the chain conveyor can have single or double chains depending upon the loads involved.
How Chain Conveyors Operate
Chain conveyors are motor driven. Friction is also involved as when the load is positioned on the chain, friction works to pull the load forward.
The automotive industry is one of the main users of chain conveyor systems, where car parts are attached to the chain conveyor and they are conveyed through the plant where parts are often added and then painted. Chain conveyors are ideal for use within the painting and coating industry as this type of conveyor allows for easier paint application.
