Generally, a chain is bent in transverse route only. Having said that, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain can be structurally bent not simply horizontally but additionally vertically. It really is employed for a conveyor line which moves vertically and adjustments in direction.
X Kind Chains for Trolleys, and Energy & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are applied for trolleys, and power & free conveyors. They are drop-forged rivetless chains featuring high strength, lightweight and easy removal of components. The bottom left photo shows an X-type Chain utilized as a trolley conveyor with only one rail.
The bottom right photo shows an X-type Chain utilised for a energy & free conveyor. An additional rail is installed to receive the load for higher transfer capability.
A power & free conveyor generally has a so-called stop and go function to connect and disconnect conveyed materials with and from the chain, so that the conveyed materials is often temporarily stopped, mixed and stored.
Three kinds of X-type Chains are available according to required strength.
Z-type Chain for Light Load Trolley Conveyors
A Z-type Chain for trolley conveyors is utilized for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It is actually widely applied in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.

FH Sort Chain for Freeyor
An FH Kind Chain is utilised for the same purpose as an X-type Chain and Z-type Chain. While X-type Chain is designed for heavy loads and Z-type Chain is for light loads, FH Form Chain is employed for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain could be vertically bent only slightly, FH-type Chain can be bent both vertically and horizontally, which makes it suitable for a conveyor line moving vertically. We manufacture three kinds of FH-type Chains different in pitch.
Towline Low-Selec-Tow Chain
A towline conveyor has a mechanism to convey dollies caught by a chain buried in the floor. Our chain for towline conveyor is called LST chain (Low-selec-tow chain).
LST Chain is often bent horizontally and can also move on a slight incline. It is actually made by forging, and a recess for hooking a dog is formed at the center of each link.
