Chains for medical technology applications

Extremely strict requirements

Medical technology, also known as biomedical engineering, can be divided into a large number of sub-groups, of which the most important are diagnostics, therapy, nursing care, rehabilitation and improvement of the overall quality of life.

Medical technology applications place huge demands on chain characteristics such as surface finish, toleran­ces, breaking strength, fatigue strength, lubricant (or freedom from lubricant) and reproducibility.  

Calculation and chain configuration for medical technology

Chains for medical technology applications:

MEGAlife maintenance-free chains

MEGAlife is synonymous with maintenance-free roller and conveyor chains. Applications are where maintenance access to conveyor systems is difficult, or cases in which relubrication is undesirable. MEGAlife roller chains combine excellent wear resistance and long service life with corrosion protection and eco-friendliness, so they are ideal for applications involving hygiene articles.

Maintenance-free stainless steel chains

Stainless steel chains also belong to the category maintenance-free. They are extremely wear-resistant, corrosion-free and absolutely dry. The secret behind b.dry chains is their special design. Constructed from rustproof, maintenance-free CF stainless steel, they also feature an optimised articulated link and a special bush.

Grip chains

Gripping, pulling and transporting thin-walled materials with large surface areas are the outstanding strengths of iwis grip chains. The corrosion-proof, wear-resistant clamping elements and special pivoting gripper mechanism ensure optimum material feed, as well as 100% precise positioning of the conveyed material when chains operate in parallel.

More about Grip chains

Conveyor chains

Conveyor chains feature bent, straight, U-shaped, special attachments and/or extended pins, depending on the specialist application in which they are used. Customised chains made to individual customer specifications are also produced without delay.
