The harsh environmental factors in the steel industry ensure that there are high demands placed on the conveyor chains.
Each application requires different constructions, taking into account the weight of what is conveyed, the speed at which it is conveyed and the extremely hot or dusty environmental conditions.
The chains of K&W Transmissies are suitable for most of the processes in the steel industry. Special sliding and roller bearing techniques are used as well as curing techniques. The chains that transport the coils from the production area to the warehouse are very heavily burdened. These chains, with a pitch of 500 or 630 mm, often have outer ball bearing flange rollers. These bearings require specific technical qualities, whereby the price element is an important factor. K&W Transmissies has extensive experience in the industry.
