If there is no wet surroundings or there is no stainless steel required, an aluminium chain conveyor can be applied. The BCK aluminium chain conveyors are available in the type C83 and C102. The sprockets refer toe the sprocket diameter.
The T-slots in the profiles are designed so that standard fasteners can be brought in from the side. Customers can easily mount various components (such as side guides or photo cells) to the frame. The T-slots can also be sealed later. For almost every application there is a chain material availble. Click below to get an impression of the various chain materials and accessories.
By standardization, the chain conveyor can be delivered in various widths and types. Our friendly engineers are more than happy to discuss your requirements, offer advice and work with you to help deliver your bespoke chain conveyor. You can contact us for more information or to discuss your requirements. For your convenience, you can also design an aluminium chain conveyor with our unique tool. This tool helps you to build end customize your desired aluminium modular chain conveyor.
Flat aluminium chain conveyors
The most common chain conveyors is a flat chain conveyor. Flat chain conveyors are being placed in front or behind a machine to bring or to remove a product to the machine, such as a packaging machine or assembly system. A flat chain conveyor is also often used to handle a product, such as labelling by a labelling machine or any handling by a pick and place system. A flat chain conveyor is widely applicable.
Aluminium chain elevators
An elevating chain conveyor is used when bulk goods need to be transported to a higher elevation. The elevating chain conveyors are usually equipped with pushers or corrugated edge to prevent the goods from rolling/sliding back on the conveyor. A chain material with high friction modules can sometimes be enought to elevate the products. Mostly the chain elevator is made with a funnel on both sides to steer or store the products. The funnel is made with a protection to prevent danger. Applications of elevating pills, bags, plastic lids are only some of the examples.
Aluminium curve chain conveyors
Aluminium curve chain conveyors are used in situations where products need to turn and may not be damaged in any way. A curve chain conveyor is also often applied in production lines with high capacity. The use of aluminium curve chain conveyors is mostly proven as part of a larger logistical system that needs to supply or transport products away. Most common industries would be Distribution Centers, industrial printers and sorts. Aluminium curve chain conveyors in 90° and 180° curves are deliverable in various belt widths and radiuses.
Aluminium vertical curved chain conveyors / Z-conveyors
An aluminium vertical curved chain conveyor is applied in projects when products need to be elevated but either on the intake or the outtake side of the conveyor needs to be flat (positive or negative vertical curve). The aluminium vertical curved chain conveyor is usually equipped with pushers or corrugated edge to prevent the goods from rolling/sliding back on the conveyor. Chain material with high friction modules might be enough to elevate certain products without using pushers. Mostly the chain conveyor is made with a funnel on both sides to steer or store the products. The funnel is made with a protection to prevent danger. Applications of elevating pills, bags, plastic lids are only some of the examples.
