Conveyor chains can be combined, in most cases, with different kinds of attachments or conveyor brackets. The special steels used in side plates in all our conveyor chains are easily 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. This results in a stronger weld.
Allowance 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 mounted directly on to the upper surface of the conveyor chain side plates.
We supply a wide range of attachments to many different industries.
