iwis multiflex chains are distinguished by their high mobility in both horizontal and vertical bends. These extremely versatile plastic chains are renowned for their superior fatigue resistance on conveyor systems with bends. Multiflex chains are typically used in production applications in the automotive industry, the automation and packaging sectors, and the food industry.
The iwis SafeTop chain is a multiflex chain that remains completely enclosed in both vertical and horizontal bends. This not only reduces the danger of crushing in bends or where conveyors change direction, but also provides maximum stability for products and workpiece carrier systems. The special surface also allows extremely small items to be conveyed without risk of loss or damage. Besides the enclosed geometry of the SafeTop chain, a range of open-geometry chains with gimbal joints is also available (1700 Series).

Safety first – with the FLEXON SafeTop chain
The iwis SafeTop chain not only offers maximum stability for conveyed products and workpiece carrier systems, but also protects staff from the risk of crushing in conveyor bends or deflections.
The chain runs in the same guide tracks as standard plastic multiflex chains from the 1700 Series. If deflector plates with a minimum radius of 123.5 mm are used on bends, roller friction replaces sliding friction.
This, in turn, allows the construction of longer curved, vertical and spiral conveyor systems to overcome height differences and for buffering purposes. In addition, wider sprockets with improved chain geometry reduce surface pressure at contact points between teeth and chain, resulting in reduced wear.
