On the whole, a chain is bent in transverse course only. On the other hand, a 3D Bending Conveyor Chain is usually structurally bent not only horizontally but additionally vertically. It can be applied for any conveyor line which moves vertically and modifications in direction.
X Form Chains for Trolleys, and Electrical power & Free Conveyors
X-type Chains are employed for trolleys, and energy & 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 made use of as a trolley conveyor with only one rail.
The bottom right photo shows an X-type Chain used for any energy & free conveyor. An additional rail is installed to receive the load for higher transfer capability.
A energy & 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 could be 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 employed for service similar to that of X-type Chains described on the previous page, but is suitable for light loads. It truly is widely utilized in conveyors supplying parts, and devices for storing and unloading parts on automobile assembling lines.

FH Kind 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 Sort Chain is employed for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain may be vertically bent only slightly, FH-type Chain is often bent both vertically and horizontally, which makes it suitable to get 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 usually 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.
