iwis drive solutions for the building materials industry

Very few industries are more varied and diversified than the building materials industry. iwis supplies the industry with a wide range of products – everything from roller chains and conveyor chains to forged or die-cast chains.

Within the building materials market, iwis focuses on the following main sub-sections:

  • insulating materials industry
  • plasterboard manufacturing
  • cement-making and mining technology
  • road construction and civil engineering industry
  • bulk goods industry

Challenges

The individual demands that the ideal chain has to fulfil are different for each sub-section. What all sections have in common is that any chains in use are exposed to extreme, harsh conditions. iwis meets this challenge by offering a selection of different materials, custom-designed special solutions and a diverse range of  lubrication solutions.

Our chains are therefore guaranteed to provide high breaking strength, durability, fatigue strength – resulting in a high level of machine availability and operational security.

Tough products for harsh environments

You can rely on the cast steel chain C600 to handle the toughest traction applications and move the heaviest loads. This chain has a simple yet robust cast steel design, making it an economical and highly resilient partner for the most rugged conditions and over long distances.

Highlights

  • Measured breaking loads are about 25% higher when cast steel is used instead of cast iron
  • Alternative galvanized version available for greater corrosion protection
  • Threaded pins in connecting link for easy chain opening and closing
  • Both versions also available in plastic
