Accumulation chains from iwis

iwis accumulation chains guarantee problem-free positioning of conveyed goods via simple stopping points and prevent jolts when the belt starts and stops.

 

The outstanding features of iwis accumulation chains are their efficiency, durability and resultant cost-effectiveness. The outer low-friction rollers enable energy savings of up to 30% to be made. Accumulation chains with offset rollers allow goods to be conveyed smoothly and with optimum weight distribution, since every pin takes its share of the load.

iwis accumulation chains have idler rollers on both sides that serve two purposes: firstly, they engage with the sprocket teeth to transmit power, and secondly, they support the chain in the profile.

One special feature are the slightly protruding bushes in the inner link (1) which prevent contact corrosion between inner link and outer plate. 

Low-friction rollers
All 1/2” and 3/4” iwis accumulation chains are fitted with low-friction sintered metal rollers (2) that provide consistent and extreme light running and are not slowed down by lubricant.

The length of our application conveyor can therefore be built about 30% longer without any need for modification of the drive motors; alternatively, if the system length remains unchanged, smaller drive units may be fitted. Less strain on the chain and drive means a longer service life for the entire conveyor system.
