Conveyor chains can be combined, in most cases, with different kinds of attachments or brackets. The special steels used in side plates in all FB conveyor chains are well weldable and, because of this, the attachments can be welded directly to the chains or by screw mounting to welded brackets.
It is preferable for chain to be supplied complete with the attachments, as the welding and handling of greasy chain can often be problematic.
In the factory the attachments are connected to the chain before applying the lubrication resulting in a stronger weld.
Regard has to be made for the space the attachments need on the chain wheel when welding them to the chain. When chain and chain wheels are dimensioned correctly the attachments can in most cases be attached directly on to the upper surface of the side plates of the conveyor chains.
We supply a wide range of attachments to many different industries.
