How Do 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.

Sprockets for Plastic Flat Top Chains

Sprockets are essential components that work in conjunction with plastic flat top chains. They engage with the chain links and provide the driving force to move the chains and the products being conveyed. The selection of appropriate sprockets is crucial to ensure smooth and efficient operation of the plastic flat top chains. By precisely matching the sprockets with the chains, optimal performance and longevity of the conveyor system can be achieved.
