Anti-backbend chains transmit tensile and compressive force

21 March 2011

iwis has introduced anti-backbend chains that are flexible in only one direction, so they are suitable for pushing loads and transmitting forces over longer distances without the need for a guidance system. Compact in design, the chains will transmit both tensile and compressive forces, performing a similar function to linear drives, eliminating the need for an endless, circulating chain drive. The chains can be made in a range of sizes and configured for various drive arrangements.

In addition to anti-backbend chains, iwis provides a full product range for all drive and conveying applications. The iwis Group’s programme for industrial applications comprises precision and high-performance roller chains, conveyor chains, maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant chains, accumulation chains, special-purpose conveyor chains, chains for agricultural machinery, flyer chains, flat-top chains and modular belts as well as timing drives for the automotive industry.
