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.

This is how you benefit from our solutions

  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced machine downtimes
  • Greatest possible length precision and tolerances across pairs of components
  • Use of the optimum lubricant or the use of sintered metal bushes to eliminate the need for maintenance
  • Low-friction rollers to save energy
  • On-site customer care by iwis staff

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

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.
