  6. Cleanroom Environments

Multiflex Chain Application

Working Principle of Plastic Multiflex Chains

Plastic multiflex chains operate on the principle of interlocking modular units.

The chain consists of individual plastic links or modules that are interconnected to form a continuous chain loop. Each module has built-in tabs or hinges that allow it to flex and articulate, providing flexibility in various directions.

The chain is driven by sprockets or sprocket wheels, which engage with the tabs on the modules and propel the chain forward. The modular design allows for easy assembly, disassembly, and customization of the chain to suit specific conveyor layouts and requirements.

As the sprockets rotate, they engage with the modules, causing them to articulate and move along the conveyor path. The interlocking design ensures smooth and synchronized movement of the chain, allowing for the efficient transfer of products or materials from one point to another.

The Importance of Sprockets in Plastic Multiflex Chain Applications

Sprockets play a crucial role in the performance of plastic multiflex chains. They are responsible for transferring power from the to the chain, and they engage with the tabs on the modules to propel the chain forward. Therefore, it is important to choose the right sprockets that are compatible with the chain and meet the application requirements.
