Chain Driven Belt
Chain driven belts are made by fitting high load capacity side chains to ordinary wire belts. Angle bars can be attached for anti-slip purpose. Belt and chain are synchronized through stays (cross supports).
It is possible to fit to belts of almost all types, including woven wire.
Glossary of Expanded Metal Terms
- Because chain is driven by sprocket, meandering does not occur.
- Various types of chain can be applied by adjusting belt pitch.
- It is easy to attach side guard and product stopper in combination with chain and stay.
Selection of wire conveyor belt with chain:
- Belt selection: Select belt type, wire diameter and pitch according to type, shape, size and weight of products.
- Selection of chain and support: Select chain and stay according to product conditions, belt width, length, speed, machine layout...etc.
- Flat bar type
Chain with attachment is used. Flat bar is fitted to attachment at both sides. Flat bar is passed inside spiral (as with stay pin type ) or belt is put on flat bar. Spacer must be provided between attachment base and flat bar so that belt is positioned at same level as chain center.
- Angle channel type
This type is used to prevent deflection in case chain C/C is wide and support rail can not be installed.
The same installment procedure as that applied to flat bar is applied.
- Pipe type
Similar to angle type. With pipe type, however, it is necessary to crush pipe ends so as fit to attachment. If Ep type chain is used, the same assembling procedure as stay pin type can be applied. In this case, weight is reduced and deflection in direction of width is suppressed.
