Chain conveyor systems – As an alternative to the roller conveyor system, space-efficient and versatile
Chain conveyor systems are appropriate for the automated longitudinal and transversal conveyance of goods with stable running surfaces. Especially for pallets or rather for hot or large and heavy goods. Due to the robust design, chain conveyor systems may be used where roller conveyors and belt conveyors cannot be deployed. The position of the transport units can be monitored at the desired points by sensors, and the flow of material can be controlled. Our chain conveyor systems are individually adjusted to the customer specifications and wishes. Depending on the width of the goods to be transported, chain conveyor systems are composed of several chains. The drive takes place by means of chain wheels is positively linked, i.e. non-slip.
Heavy Duty Chain Conveyor
The heavy duty chain conveyor can be used for a variety of purposes and industries. An entire vehicle body on a skid can be easily conveyed from one assembly point to another.
This conveyor is also ideal for transporting high capacity part storage racks (as shown below) among many other uses.
Free Flow Chain Conveyor
Freeflow or Top Roller chain coveyor is a dual-strand, fully accumulating conveyor with the center portion open to allow automation or other devices access from underneath. Both sides of the conveyor are driven and the chain generally runs continously. When a pallet is stopped, the rollers on the chain roll on the underside of the pallet, allowing accumulation of pallets. Freeflow chain conveyor is best suited for medium weight assembly applications with palletized loads. Drives are generally required every 10' and maximum weight on one section is 2,500 lbs.
"Cassette" Style Free Flow Chain Conveyor
The cassette style conveyor can be used for main line feed up. The conveyor can be loaded by an automatic guided cart (AGC), by a robot, or by an operator. The example below for GM Lake Orion depicts the conveyor being loaded with wheel house parts by an AGC and then conveyed to the mainline where the product will be robotically unloaded.
Flat Top Chain Conveyor
BLEICHERT Flat Top conveyors and components are designed to continuously improve the productivity of every application. The fact that they are manufactured to perform better and last longer has made them the product of choice for a diverse variety of businesses, including the auto industry, bottlers, poultry processors, and can manufacturers.
Silent Chain Conveyor
BLEICHERT Silent chain conveyors and components are primarily used in harsh environments where durability is the number one objective. This product typically handles the accumulation of heavy weight loads with a minimum of back pressure. The unit below is installed at BMW’s assembly plant in Spartanburg S.C.
