Industrial applications in the automotive industry

Innovative solutions are becoming increasingly important in securing the long-term future of the automotive industry. High-frequency cycles and the just-in-time principle require the absolute reliability of production components.

Our individual precision chain systems make it easier for you to implement innovations and optimise the production process – because together, we move the world!

Industrial applications in the automotive industry

Reliable and trouble-free

Conveyor systems ensure that production processes run smoothly and significantly increase efficiency in a wide variety of industrial settings. Two key applications for conveyor technology are in-house transportation and the despatch of finished goods. Reliable, trouble-free running of conveyor systems is essential to ensure the efficient handling of today’s increasing product volumes.

Supplier to the automotive industry Production facilities iwis

High quality despite critical factors

The automotive industry is one of the largest and most diverse in the world, and it also requires the suppliers of its production facilities to comply with extremely high standards.

iwis manufactures precision chain systems and offers individual, application-specific solutions for critical factors such as length tolerances, various temperature ranges, freedom from maintenance and the highest possible availability of our customers’ production facilities.

These chains might particularly interest you:

MEGAlife maintenance-free

The MEGAlife brand is synonymous with maintenance-free roller and conveyor chains. Maintenance of certain parts of automotive industry conveyor systems can be difficult because of their inaccessibility, or relubrication is difficult or impossible in a given application – these are just two of the many reasons for using a maintenance-free chain. MEGAlife chains combine excellent wear resistance and durability with corrosion protection and environmental compatibility. more about MEGAlife

Accumulation chains

The constant stop-and-go operation of automotive industry transfer lines places great demands on the accumulation chains used.  iwis accumulation chains guarantee trouble-free positioning of conveyed goods via simple stopping points and prevent jolts when the line starts and stops.

Maintenance-free stainless steel chains

Stainless steel chains also fall under the heading “maintenance-free”. They are extremely wear-resistant, corrosion-free and absolutely dry. The secret of b.dry chains is that they are made from rustproof, maintenance-free CF stainless steel with an optimised bearing, and the fact that a special b.dry high-performance polymer bush is used. more about b.dry

Bush conveyor chains

Bush conveyor chains belong to the large-scale conveyor chain range. They are particularly suitable for conveying goods over long distances at relatively low speeds, and are adapted to meet the individual requirements of a customer-specific application.
