Working Principle of Plastic Multiflex Chains

Plastic Multiflex Chains operates 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 for Your Application

  1. Load Capacity
  2. It is important to select a Plastic Multiflex Chain with the appropriate load capacity for your specific application, to ensure that it can handle the weight and volume of the products or materials being conveyed.
