Drag Chain Conveyor is ideal for moving products that wouldn’t normally convey on rollers, such as pallets oriented the “hard-way”, automotive frames, steel tubes, etc. It’s also a great solution for heavier loads. Further, drag chain conveyors provide versatility in production lines because they can easily be integrated into systems with chain driven live roller (CDLR) and chain transfers. Their rugged design is suitable for harsh environments due to the low number of moving components and limited amount of maintenance required.
