Versatility

Plastic flat top chains can be used in a wide range of industries such as food and beverage, manufacturing and assembly, logistics and distribution, pharmaceutical and medical, packaging and printing, warehousing and distribution centers, mining and aggregates, airport baggage handling, recycling and waste management, e-commerce and fulfillment centers.

Durability

Plastic flat top chains are made from high-quality, durable plastic materials that can withstand harsh environments and heavy loads. They are resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and chemical damage, making them ideal for use in challenging industrial applications.

Cleanliness

Plastic flat top chains are designed to be easy to clean, reducing the risk of contamination and ensuring compliance with industry regulations. They do not require lubrication, which can attract dirt and debris, and can be easily cleaned with soap and water.

Flexibility

Plastic flat top chains are available in a range of sizes and configurations to suit different conveying applications. They can be easily customized to meet specific requirements, such as non-standard widths or lengths, and can be easily integrated with other conveyor components.

Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains operate quietly and smoothly, reducing noise levels in the workplace and improving operator comfort. They are ideal for use in environments where low noise levels are a priority, such as hospitals or laboratories.

Smooth Product Transfer

Plastic flat top chains provide a smooth and even platform for product transfer, reducing the risk of product damage or disruption. They are ideal for use with delicate or fragile products that require gentle handling.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains provide high levels of traction, ensuring that products are securely transported along the conveyor system. They are ideal for use in applications where product stability is a priority, such as inclined conveyors or conveyor systems with steep inclines.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are an affordable conveying solution that offers excellent value for money. They are easy to install, require minimal maintenance and have a long service life, making them a cost-effective alternative to other conveyor systems.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, reducing downtime and increasing productivity. They do not require lubrication, which can save time and money on maintenance costs, and can be easily cleaned with soap and water.

Reduced Product Jams

Plastic flat top chains feature an interlocking design that ensures a stable and secure conveying surface, preventing product slippage or misalignment during transportation. This reduces the risk of product jams and increases 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.
