Side bow chains

iwis side bow chains are generally used as conveyor or drag chains in applications that require curved tracks. The chains may have different bow radii. As a rule, the pin diameter of these chains is smaller, but conical pins or bi-conical bushes are also possible. This special pin shape allows curves to be negotiated in many applications that involve a variety of curve radii.

Side bow chains – chains that take every curve in their stride

Construction dimensions of side bow chains follow standard ISO 606, so they can be used with standard sprockets. Depending on the application, side bow chains can be supplied with special lubricants or special coatings, or fitted with bent attachments, flat plastic conveyor plates or extended pins. Side bow roller chains are used in a wide variety of applications,

and accumulation chains are also available in side bow versions. Some examples of their uses are conveyor technology, cleaning technology and industrial laundries, high-temperature plant environments, the textile industry, packaging industry, logistics systems and the food and beverage industry.
