multiflex chains application

1. Conveyor Systems

Plastic multiflex chains are widely used in conveyor systems, particularly in food processing, pharmaceutical, and other industries where hygiene and cleanliness are of utmost importance. The chains’ smooth and quiet operation, combined with their ability to handle heavy loads, makes them an excellent choice for conveying products and materials over long distances.

2. Manufacturing and Assembly Lines

Plastic multiflex chains are also widely used in manufacturing and assembly lines, where they provide a flexible and efficient means of conveying products and materials between different workstations. Their low maintenance requirements and ease of customization make them an ideal solution for diverse manufacturing and assembly applications.

3. Distribution and Warehousing

In distribution and warehousing applications, plastic multiflex chains are used to move products and materials between different storage and processing areas. Their chemical resistance and low friction properties make them well-suited for use in harsh environments, while their low noise and vibration characteristics make them ideal for use in noise-sensitive environments.

4. Packaging and Bottling

Plastic multiflex chains are commonly used in packaging and bottling applications, where they provide a reliable and efficient means of conveying products and materials through the packaging and bottling process. Their flexibility allows them to easily navigate through complex machinery, while their low maintenance requirements and chemical resistance make them ideal for this application.

5. Material Sorting and Grading

Plastic multiflex chains are also used in material sorting and grading applications, where they provide a reliable and efficient means of conveying products and materials through sorting and grading equipment. Their flexibility and low noise properties allow for smooth and precise movement of products and materials, ensuring accurate sorting and grading results.

6. Cleanroom Environments

Plastic multiflex chains are used in cleanroom environments, where hygiene and cleanliness are critical. The chains’ low particle generation and ease of cleaning make them an ideal solution for conveying products and materials in cleanroom environments.

How Plastic Multiflex Chains Work

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.

How to Select the Right Plastic Multiflex Chains

  1. Load Capacity
  2. Application Environment
  3. Chain Material
  4. Chain Profile and Design
  5. Environmental Factors
  6. Conveyor System Layout
  7. Maintenance and Cleanability
  8. Cost Considerations
  9. Supplier and Support

Sprockets for Plastic Multiflex Chains

We also offer sprockets that are specifically designed to work with plastic multiflex chains. Sprockets are an essential component of the conveyor system and play a critical role in the smooth and efficient operation of the chain.

The sprockets we offer are designed to work seamlessly with plastic multiflex chains, ensuring smooth and synchronized movement of the chain. The sprockets feature a precisely machined profile that engages with the tabs on the modules, providing a secure and reliable means of driving the chain forward.


Sprockets and plastic multiflex chains are designed to work together to provide a reliable and efficient means of conveying products and materials. The sprockets engage with the tabs on the modules, providing the driving force that propels the chain forward. Without the sprockets, the chain would not function properly, making the sprockets a critical component of the conveyor system.

Other Chain Products We Offer

In addition to plastic multiflex chains and sprockets, we also offer a wide range of other chain products, including plastic chains, stainless steel chains, agricultural chains, leaf chains, and more. These products are designed to meet the diverse needs of our customers and to provide reliable and efficient solutions for their conveyor system requirements.
