Services and Engineering services

In addition to a variety of products iwis offers a range of technical services and services.

In keeping with our corporate philosophy, our speciality is delivering solutions – either as standard, or tailored to individual customer problems. We can adapt existing designs to customers' individual requirements or develop entirely new chain drives by collaborating closely with customers on feasibility studies, designing components and performing deformation and stress analyses.

We then examine the physical properties of the chain system by conducting vibration and stress tests on its components.

Prototypes are rigorously tested for durability and service life on test rigs which subject the chain drives to far greater loads than would be encountered in real life. We are committed to ensuring that only products of the highest quality are delivered to our customers.

Simply contact us. Our engineering team will be pleased to advise you.

Chain design and chain calculation with iwis

Our team of experienced engineers and designers constantly puts its store of technical know-how to practical use: finding solutions for the challenges of customer projects. When designing a chain, numerous specific correlations and influences must be taken into consideration and systematically incorporated in the calculation.

iwis InduKet Calculation Program for chain calculation

InduKet: the Chain Drive Calculation Program for Engineers

Designing and configuring a chain drive is fast and easy using the iwis chain drive calculation program. First select a chain you think will be suitable, the software will then look browse under the term “Industrial chain drives” and identify the appropriate drive chains.

Custom Hybrid Attachments Plates

The new direct hybrid manufacturing technology (DHM) offers you the best from two different manufacturing technologies. Combine the benefits of conventional manufacturing technology with the possibilities offered by additive manufacturing and give your partners greater flexibility in development.

The fusion of these two technologies opens up a wide range of new possibilities for machine manufacturers: You can develop new plate geometries that are precisely tailored to meet an individual requirement without making any compromises in respect of quality and precision.

Engineering services

iwis is familiar with every kind of chain drive application – our experience covers everything from camshaft drives for high-performance motor racing engines to specialist conveyor systems in drying kilns, or precision carriage drives for photocopiers to the stop-and-go operation of accumulation chains on automotive industry production lines.

Our experienced team of design and development experts offer you help and advice with chain calculation and configuration.
