Low Noise

Plastic flat top chains generate less noise compared to other conveyor systems, providing a quieter and more comfortable working environment.

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 during transportation.

High Traction

Plastic flat top chains offer high levels of traction, ensuring a secure and stable conveying surface for products and materials.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are a cost-effective solution for conveying products and materials, offering a low maintenance and long service life.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, reducing the overall cost of ownership and downtime.

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.
