With 75 years of experience in the industry, FB Ketju is Europe’s leading conveyor chain manufacturer and supplier. We offer a wide range of conveyor chain types, including standard, customized and special conveyor chains.
Our chains are the result of ongoing R&D and pushing the edge for use in the most demanding applications. These are lightweight, long-lasting and strong chains for heavy industry.
In addition to conveyor chains, we also offer sprockets, conveyor chain attachments and brackets, and special chains.
Modern Production Technology. Scandinavian Expertise.
Our conveyor chain production facility in Finland is the most advanced conveyor chain manufacturing unit in Europe. Our conveyor chains have been developed over many decades and are used by leading manufacturers in the wood and paper industries as well as experts from the steel industry, heat-treatment specialists, and technological facilities in major Scandinavian universities.
Conveyor chain manufacturer and supplier FB has invested heavily in the latest advances in welding, turning and robotic assembly. Real-time production status reporting for all major equipment provides excellent control and advantage sin manufacturing flexibility.
We pride ourselves on our rigorous manufacturing methods. For example, conveyor chain side plates are precision punched, yielding high accuracy and a cylindrical form to the holes. This ensures a precise fit between the pin or bush and the side plate and results in consistent contact between the components over the whole thickness of the plate. The beneficial effects of precision punching include the ability to withstand higher shock loads and a significantly improved fatigue life.
Our conveyor chains are characterized by their high resistance to shock load and a much longer chain wear life. Product strength is derived from excellence of design, materials, and construction. We always select our materials from the highest quality steels according to their metallurgical specifications.
A Wide Range of Conveyor Chains
Stainless Steel Chains
FB Ketju chains are made from high-grade materials (typically AISI304 or AISI316). These materials are especially suitable for anti-corrosion and meeting the required conditions for certain chemicals. Our FB Ketju chain should be selected when resistance to chemical action is critical.
FB conveyor chain manufacturing is focused on metric pitch conveyor chains that include International Standards DIN 8167/ISO 1977 M series, DIN 8165/ISO1977 FV series and SMS1968 S series. In addition, we offer various materials and manufacturing methods to suit the most demanding conveyor chain applications.
Customized and Special Chains
As a designer and manufacturer of special chains, FB Ketju meets specific customer requirements. Our aim is to always propose the best individual solution. We will gladly meet any customer requirements for design, dimensions, raw material, lubrication, heat and surface treatment of chains.
With the aid of modern laser-cutting technology and in-house production, we can create chains entirely according to your needs. If your application demands special functions, we can cost-effectively create a chain that entirely matches your specifications. We can also produce shorter series of special chains without expensive retooling costs.
We also offer drop forged link chains.
