Drive solutions for the Food Industry

The meat and meat processing industry, the dairy sector, confectionery and bakery industry, the non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverage industry, and the fruit and vegetable processing sector are some of the most important parts of the food industry. There is a huge number of products on offer, and the quality, safety and variety of the range of food and beverages available have never been better.

In consequence, customer expectations continue to rise, and the increasing level of digitalisation is accompanied by a new set of challenges. Food industry producers are reacting to the growing demands and expectations of consumers. The industry will only be able to keep up with this trend in the long term by using high-quality raw materials and state-of-the-art production technology. You can rely on iwis as your partner, because together we move the world!


Hygiene and precision

The food industry is one of the largest worldwide, with a complexity and diversity that present roller chain manufacturers with extremely demanding challenges. We use particularly narrow tolerances and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to guarantee the high precision of our chains.

The machines and components used in the food industry must not only comply with general industrial safety requirements, but also meet tough cleaning, hygiene and disinfection standards. We are a specialist producer of precision chain systems that offer individual solutions for critical issues such as hygiene requirements, varying temperature ranges or corrosion resistance.

We will be glad to provide support and advice in designing the chain for your application!


  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced machine downtimes
  • Highest possible length accuracy and pair tolerances
  • Use of optimum lubricant
  • Local customer care by iwis staff

iwis antriebssysteme is proud of its role as a development partner and technology leader who will help you to meet the challenges you face. State-of-the-art simulation and configuration tools developed in-house help our design engineers to decide on the right products at an early stage.

Chains for food industry applications:

MEGAlife maintenance-free

MEGAlife is synonymous with maintenance-free roller and conveyor chains. Just two typical reasons for using a maintenance-free chain are when access to automotive industry conveyor systems for maintenance work is difficult, or when relubrication is inconvenient or undesirable. MEGAlife roller chains combine excellent wear protection and durability with corrosion protection and eco-friendliness.

b.dry Maintenance-free stainless steel chains

Stainless steel chains also belong to the “maintenance-free” category. They are extremely wear-resistant, rustproof and absolutely dry. The secret of b.dry chains is their special construction: they are made from rustproof, maintenance-free CF stainless steel with an optimised bearing design, in combination with a b.dry bush.

CR Chains

The distinctive features of CR chains are their corrosion resistance and significantly higher tensile and fatigue strength in comparison with ordinary stainless steel chains. They are resistant to adverse corrosive environments, and remain supple and rustproof. 

POC – Pin oven chains

Pin oven chains guarantee the safe, reliable handling of drinks cans, aerosol cans or other thin-walled hollow containers in high-speed, high-temperature applications.

Flat top chains

Different versions of steel, stainless steel or plastic chains for straight or curved tracks can be used, depending on product design and requirements, Ideal for conveying food products.

CCM-S - The chain elongation monitoring system on JWIS chain



Chain Condition Monitoring

The CCM-S is the latest chain monitoring innovation from iwis.  With additional interfaces and sensors, it measures the wear elongation of chains in use and thus helps maintenance personnel to recognise in good time when the chain needs to be replaced due to wear elongation. Learn more
