utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement, carrying a
series of single pendants. The chain arrangement is driven by a
motor, and the material suspended on the pendants are conveyed.
Chain conveyors are primarily used to transport heavy unit
loads, e.g. pallets, grid boxes, and industrial containers.
These conveyors can be single or double chain strand in
configuration. The load is positioned on the chains, the
friction pulls the load forward. Many industry sectors use chain
conveyor technology in their production lines. The automotive
industry commonly use chain conveyor systems to convey car parts
through paint plants. Chain conveyors also have widespread use
in the white and brown goods, metal finishing and distribution
industries. Chain conveyors are also used in the painting and
coating industry, this allows for easier paint application. The
products are attached to an above head chain conveyor, keeping
products off of the floor allows for higher productivity levels.
