Applications of Plastic Flat Top Chains

How do 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.
