Smooth Product Transfer

The flat top surface of plastic flat top chains provides a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains provide high levels of traction, ensuring that products are transported securely and without slippage.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are a cost-effective solution, providing a reliable and efficient conveying system at a lower cost than other types of chains.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains are easy to maintain and require minimal upkeep, reducing maintenance costs and downtime.

Reduced Product Jams

The interlocking design of plastic flat top chains prevents product jams, reducing the risk of downtime and increasing productivity.

How Plastic Flat Top Chains Work

Plastic flat top chains operate on the principle of interlocking modules that form a continuous, flat surface. The chains are driven by sprockets that engage with the chain links, causing them to move and transport products along the conveyor system. The interlocking design ensures a stable and secure conveying surface, preventing product slippage or misalignment during transportation. The flat top surface provides a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of damage or disruption.
