ELITE baler chain Series HBC

The new ELITE roller chain Series HBC (Heavy Baler Chain) was developed by iwis especially for the demanding conditions of baler applications.

HBC roller chains are characterised by their outstanding fatigue strength and extremely high wear resistance, yet only require the same space as standard roller chains with the same pitch.

ELITE baler chain Series HBC


  • The higher proportion of link plates with clean-cut edges offers longer chain service life and higher retention forces for greater stability.
  • Special steel grades and heat treatment processes reduce wear without changing chain dimensions.
  • Optimised plate contours and special materials offer higher fatigue strength without the need for increased chain installation space requirements.
  • Premium quality initial lubricant tailored to the operating requirements of balers.
  • Longer maintenance / chain replacement intervals resulting from the best ratio of fatigue strength and wear resistance currently available in the market.

Versatile, practical drive chains for harvesters: ELITE baler chains

Agricultural machines are in constant use outdoors and in all weathers, so their components and systems are permanently subjected to the effects of dust, soil, cold and moisture. Their operational capability is also severely tested when they have been out of action for longer periods of time e.g. during the winter season. iwis specifically developed the new ELITE brand roller chains as drive chains for harvester round balers. The chains are available in a wide range of configurations.

So they are versatile, practical, and can be used in many makes of machine. An outstanding feature of these roller chains is their improved plate contour which increases fatigue strength. The pin is subjected to a special heat treatment process to reduce wear, and the material pairing of pin and bush has been optimised. As always, the chains are treated with a high-performance lubricant before they leave the factory.
