Usually, a chain is bent in transverse route only. Nevertheless, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain could be structurally bent not simply horizontally but also vertically. It really is utilised to get a conveyor line which moves vertically and changes in course.
X Style Chains for Trolleys, and Electrical power & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are made use of for trolleys, and electrical power & free conveyors. They are drop-forged rivetless chains featuring high strength, lightweight and easy removal of components. The bottom left photo shows an X-type Chain made use of as a trolley conveyor with only one rail.
The bottom right photo shows an X-type Chain made use of for a electrical power & free conveyor. An additional rail is installed to receive the load for higher transfer capability.
A electrical power & free conveyor generally has a so-called stop and go function to connect and disconnect conveyed materials with and from the chain, so that the conveyed materials can be temporarily stopped, mixed and stored.
Three kinds of X-type Chains are available according to required strength.
Z-type Chain for Light Load Trolley Conveyors
A Z-type Chain for trolley conveyors is made use of for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It is actually widely applied in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.

FH Sort Chain for Freeyor
An FH Type Chain is applied for the same purpose as an X-type Chain and Z-type Chain. While X-type Chain is designed for heavy loads and Z-type Chain is for light loads, FH Kind Chain is used for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain is usually vertically bent only slightly, FH-type Chain can be bent both vertically and horizontally, which makes it suitable for a conveyor line moving vertically. We manufacture three kinds of FH-type Chains different in pitch.
Towline Low-Selec-Tow Chain
A towline conveyor has a mechanism to convey dollies caught by a chain buried in the floor. Our chain for towline conveyor is called LST chain (Low-selec-tow chain).
LST Chain is usually bent horizontally and can also move on a slight incline. It is actually made by forging, and a recess for hooking a dog is formed at the center of each link.
