Accumulation chains for feed & assembly
Accumulation chains for feed & assembly

Accumulation chains have an enlarged conveying roller every other segment, which transports the conveyed materials and allows the chain to pass underneath queued material without damaging it. Used in feeding applications, automation engineering and to provide gentle transportation, accumulation chains are very versatile. In conveying applications they are used as links between stations of  a production or assembly line, in warehouses, in a range of material flow systems; in short, wherever workpieces, finished products, pallets, containers or crates need to be moved, stored, accelerated or separated along defined routes.

Requiring a lower drive power, these accumulation chains with low friction running rollers are very energy-e cient. Because its rollers are arranged in an o set pattern and each pin is load-bearing, theycombine an optimized load distribution with a gentler, more even transport of the conveyed goods. The bushings and low-frictionrunning rollers of the maintenance-free Megalife range of accumulation chains are made from hardened sintered metal featuring alubricant reservoir. They do not have to be relubricated, allowingthem to remain clean throughout their service life so there is no risk of product contamination. Side bow accumulation conveyor chains provide a modular solution for direction changes in conveying systems. They have an exceptionally small minimum bend radius and fully contacting chain link seven in the bend.

Elite accumulation chains are available in a standard and a low maintenance design. For increased personnel safety and to protect the conveyed goods, Elite accumulation chains are also available with nger and parts protection. The gap between the conveying rollers of this type is covered to prevent fingers or small objects becoming trapped between the rollers during operation.
