Accumulation chains from Iwis come in several versions
28 June 2010
Accumulation chains have an enlarged conveying roller every other segment, which transports the conveyed materials and allows the chain to pass underneath queued material without damaging it. Used in feeding applications, automation engineering and to provide gentle transportation of, for example, workpiece carriers, accumulation chains are exceptionally versatile.
New Iwis branded accumulation chains include versions with low-friction running rollers, side bow conveyor chains and maintenance free conveyor chains, as well as conventional accumulation chains. The Elite range includes accumulation roller chains, chains with parts and finger protection, and double-pitch roller chains.
Requiring a lower drive power, the accumulation chains with low-friction running rollers are exceptionally energy-efficient. Because the rollers are arranged in an offset pattern and each pin is load-bearing, they combine an optimised load distribution with a gentler, more even transport of the conveyed goods.
The bushings and low-friction running rollers of the maintenance-free Megalife range of accumulation chains are made from hardened sintered metal with lubricant reservoir. Megalife chains do not have to be relubricated, allowing them to remain clean throughout their service life so there is no risk of product contamination.
Side bow accumulation conveyor chains provide a modular solution for direction changes in conveying systems. They have an exceptionally small minimum bend radius and fully contacting chain links even in the bend.
Elite accumulation chains are available in a standard and a low-maintenance design. For increased personnel safety and to protect the conveyed goods, Elite accumulation chains are also available with finger and parts protection. The gap between the conveying rollers of this type is covered to prevent fingers or small objects becoming trapped between the rollers during operation.
