Applications of Plastic Flat Top Chains

Working Principle

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 an essential component for plastic flat top chains as they provide the driving force to move the chains along the conveyor system. The design and compatibility of sprockets play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth operation and longevity of the chains. Properly matched sprockets prevent chain slippage and ensure efficient power transmission.
