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.
