iwis drive systems is presenting the Flexon brand’s new cast steel C600 chain. A characteristic feature of these cast steel chains is their simple yet robust cast steel design. They are especially suitable for applications that involve pulling or conveying heavy loads, for example in the timber or construction material industries, in pallet conveyor systems, or for moving barrels, bulk containers, gas bottles and cage pallets.
The cast steel chain C600 can be relied on to deal with the toughest traction applications and move the heaviest loads even in rugged conditions and over long distances.
An increase of measured breaking loads by about 25 percent can be achieved by the use of cast steel rather than cast iron chains. As an alternative, there is also a galvanized, zinc plated version for additional corrosion protection. Threaded pins in the connecting link make the chain easy to close and unclose. The cast steel iron chain can also be supplied on request in a plastic version. Chains are available with a pitch of 63.5 mm and with or without TAB.
