Main Types of Slat Top Chains

Type of a Chain Description Illustration

SLAT TOP plastic chains

SLAT TOP plastic chains with plates connected by pins are a light, strong and quiet alternative to steel chains.

The SUPER FLEX guide system is available for Bevel and Tab chains. They are also available with RUBBER TOP surface. SLAT TOP chains enable straight and side flexing running.

SLAT TOP steel chains

They are mainly used in fields that handle glass containers. They are very strong, suitable for use in high speeds. Broken glass will not affect the function of the chain.

The offer includes chains made of hardened carbon steel and stainless steel. They enable straight and side flexing running.

SNAP-ON chains

Special roller chains with extended pins and plastic or rubber flights are suitable for applications with requirements for high speed and lower operating noise. Overlapping plates are an advantage in cases where it is necessary to avoid trapping the transported product in the gaps between the plates.

All versions of SNAP-ON chains can be supplied in both stainless steel and carbon steel versions. They enable straight and side flexing running.

uni FLEX plastic chains

Universal plastic chains are mainly used for handling crates. They show high tensile strength and operating capacity.

They are available in open and closed versions. They enable also side flexing running.

In addition to the basic types mentioned above, there are also other less common variants of chains designed for specific applications. Even in case of such a specific request, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Chains Fields of Use

They are also used in the production of bottles and glasses in the glass industry, in the rubber industry, but also in conveyors at airports or distribution centres, as well as in other machines and equipment.
