Conveyor chains are used to transport material and to move products along an assembly line or production facility. The most common type are bush conveyor chains, where the inner links are placed on a bush that forms a chain link with the chain pin of the outer link. The large joint area reduces friction and wear.
Casing conveyor chains are the most commonly used conveyor chains. The connection with other parts is made by so-called chain conveyors. These conveyors can be in a single or dual chain configuration.
