Drop-Forged Rivetless Chain Features

  • Precise pitch control provides consistency and reliability.
  • Smooth forged bearing areas allow for extended wear life.
  • Proprietary heat treatment allows for a premium balance of strength, toughness, and durability.
  • Easy assembly/disassembly – no tools required.
  • Standard and Ultra Wear Life (UWL) versions are available.
  • The design utilizes a proprietary Induction Hardened pin for enhanced wear resistance and extended life.

Types of Drop-Forged Chain

There are three types of drop-forged chains:

• H Type Drop-forged Chain
• X Type Drop-forged Chain
• S Type Drop-forged Chain

H-Type drop-forged chain is furnished with heat-treated pins that are symmetrical and may be reversed when one side is worn. Standard drop forged chain can be furnished in carbon steel or high-strength alloy steel materials.

X-Type drop-forged chain is furnished with all chain components heat treated and is designed to have increased flexibility and overall, better performance. X-type drop forged chain can be furnished in carbon steel or high-strength alloy steel materials.

S-Type drop-forged chain manufactured with standard, forged block links and fabricated steel sidebars. This chain offers the advantage of a flat steel sidebar for welding attachments. The pins are a riveted style to keep the sidebars locked in place, eliminating the chance of the chain coming apart when slack is present. This also reduces unnecessary wear between the pins and inner links.

Drop Forged Chains Manufacturing Process

Drop forging: Conveyor chains belong to closed die drop forging, so forging dies will make first; our in-house die workshop will supply you high precision forging dies and then drop the forged conveyor chain with the next shape.

Machining: Our advanced CNC machining centers guarantee superior and permanent quality. Machining will ensure perfect assembling and working. These machining operations include milling, drilling, boring, etc.

Heat treatment: Heat treatment can ensure uniform surface hardness and depth. Heat treatment is the heart process for making drop-forged conveyor chains. With many years of experience, we will know how to treat heat to achieve the best operating performance.

Quality testing: Each chain link will be checked and tested in our testing room, especially for hardness. And the testing result will be placed in our well-organized database so that it can be checked at any time.

Applications of Drop-Forged Rivetless Chain 

Drop forged rivetless chain is a high-strength-to-weight ratio chain that can be quickly and easily assembled and disassembled without the use of tools. The loose link designs help to prevent material from packing into the joints therefore offering some self-cleaning ability. Typical applications include overheard conveyors, twin-strand conveyors, flight conveyors, washing lines and trolley conveyors. It is often found being used in compacting or sticky material applications, paint lines, heavy-duty swarf conveyors, sugar mill conveyors, meat processing and appliance assembly lines to name a few.

Applications of Drop-Forged Rivetless Chain

Drop-Forged Rivetless Chain Attachments

Side Link Pusher Dog 
Side link pusher dogs are forged components and are used for drop forged rivetless chains. Their main function is to engage with the Front Flopper Dog of the leading free trolley on the lower track of the Power and Free Conveyor System.

Center Link Pusher Dog
This products main function is to connect Pusher Dogs in the conveyor system. It can connect with one Pusher Dog or one on both sides of the Center Link.

Center Link Attachment
This series of forged or casted parts are mounted on the center link of the rivetless conveyor chain, adding a variety of different functions and applications to the center link.

Extended Pin
This product is a forged part. Its function is to connect the side link and the center link to fixed chains. It can also be combined with different types of trolleys, hangers, and pusher dog extensions to provide alternative conveying functions.

H Attachment
This is a universal auxiliary hanger accessory. It is made of a combination of two metal plates and which is suitable for most types of hooks, racks, and trays.

I Attachment
This accessory serves as a spacer and does not carry work pieces on the trolley.

B Attachment
This accessory is a formed by hot forging and has a thread stud. It has various applications including attaching trolley pairs to load bars.

C Attachment
This accessory is used to support lightweight work pieces within a trolley.

Overhead Trolley Load Bars
Casted Overhead Trolley Load Bars are used in conjunction with the two trolley wheels and B attachments. The main purpose is to increase the load capability over the trolley wheels.

Hanger
A variety of hanger styles and accessories are available to suit the design of the conveyor chain equipment. Hangers do not affect the operation of the chain. They are used where vertical lifting of weight is required, and the load must be directly above or below the trolley wheel set. If the load is heavy, we can use the load bar to connect more than 2 sets of trolley wheels, and equally distribute the load over the pair of trolleys. This will suspend the load at the center of the load bar to equalize the loading distribution over the trolley wheels.

Swivel Hook
The swivel hook can be forged or casted. It allows the load to be positioned at a 90-degree angle. It allows operators to move the product in a full 360 degrees while on the conveyor system. It is used with H attachments.

Forged Bracket
The strength of the forged bracket indirectly determines the lifespan of the conveyor system. To ensure that the chain runs according to the track design route, the forged bracket is pulled by the chain and runs along the track. It needs to bear the combined force of the chain tension when turning vertically and horizontally. The hanger is made of high-strength carbon steel and can be divided into two types: overhead and ground. Our forged brackets are forged from high-strength carbon steel. The brackets are divided into two types: Overhead and Inverted.

Power Trolley
Power trolleys are an important option during the design phase of the conveyor equipment. The main function of a power trolley is to support the chain, bear the weight of hangers and the conveyor equipment parts such as pieces in work. Bearings, hangers, and forged brackets are the main components of a power trolley.

Matching Drop Forged Rivetless Chain Sprockets

This drop forged rivetless chain sprockets is manufactured specifically for drop forged rivetless chain, and is designed to work with the chain and attachments as smoothly as possible. However, some applications require sprockets that have an extra clearance that is commonly known as the "relief area". We offer both styles as shown below, make sure to let us know what your application is or which style of sprocket you need so we can get you the exact match for your application.
