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

FH Kind Chain for Freeyor
An FH Form Chain is used 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 utilised for intermediate loads. While X-type Chain and Z-type Chain may be vertically bent only slightly, FH-type Chain might be 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 could be 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.
