Double Flex Chains

The Double Flex Chain is a special type of conveyor chain that rotates on 2 planes and has a high degree of flexibility. Because it can travel around obstacles, it is ideal for multi-directional applications. This type of chain is available in a variety of styles and can be customized to meet specific requirements. The double flex chain is made of heat-treated alloy steel. The sliding edges are face-hardened for increased wear resistance.

Double Flex Chain Features

Double flex chains have a variety of advantages. Because of their dual articulating features, they can run in horizontal and multi-directional operations. This makes them a great choice for various applications, including the lumber mill and pallet handling industries. Their versatile design allows for a wide range of applications, from simple to highly complex. Listed below are the main benefits of double flex chains. Read on to learn more. Double flex chains are widely used in pallet handling applications.

When the conveyor reaches its exit, the pallet continues to travel at its usual conveying speed. At this point, it may be transferred to a slower conveyor. When a slow conveyor is used, the chain automatically lowers its sprockets so that the pallet travels at the speed of the chain. This ensures a constant speed when entering and exiting the conveyor. Double flex chain features minimize the risk of breakage.

Chains and Sprockets

While sprockets are usually designed to match a specific chain, there are a few differences between them. In the U.S., chains are made to a standard called ANSI. The pitch of a chain is the measurement from 1 roller-pin center to the next. The chain pitch is always measured in 1/8″ increments.

The 2 components, chains and sprockets work hand-in-hand. A sprocket is a wheel-shaped projection that hooks onto a chain for a drive. This projection later became known as the sprocket wheel. The modern chain has been driving machinery for more than a century. Sprockets are a crucial part of a chain-driven machine. The sprockets can be used in many industries. Chainsaws also use sprockets to make their blades. Chainsaws, on the other hand, use sprockets for a more reliable way to cut materials. Compared to timing belts, sprocket chains are more durable and dependable.
