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 securely transported along the conveyor system.

Cost-Effective

Plastic flat top chains are a cost-effective conveying solution, offering excellent value for money in terms of their durability, ease of maintenance, and long service life.

Low Maintenance

Plastic flat top chains require minimal maintenance, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

Reduced Product Jams

The interlocking design of plastic flat top chains ensures a stable and secure conveying surface, preventing product slippage or misalignment during transportation and reducing the risk of product jams.

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.
