Precision roller chains, heavy duty roller chains, conveyor chains, maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant chains, accumulation chains, special application chains, leaf chains, flat top chains and sprockets for industrial applications.

MEGAlife maintenance-free chains

MEGAlife maintenance-free chains

MEGAlife maintenance-free roller and conveyor chains can be used in all areas where relubrication is difficult or impossible. These include dry environments and applications where maintenance access is difficult. MEGAlife chains have nickel-plated parts and are therefore corrosion resistant and have an operating temperature range of -40°C to +160°C. Depending on the application, the maintenance-free chains are supplied either dry or with additional special lubrication.

b.dry maintenance-free Stainless Steel Chains

b.dry chains are made from corrossion-free, maintenance-free CF stainless steel with an optimized articulated link that represents a masterpiece of high precision. Anywhere that relubrication is either undesirable or impossible, b.dry chains come into their own: Hygienic and without using any lubricants, they stand up to any comparison in terms of performance.

News & Innovations

CCM: Chain Elongation Monitoring System 

The new iwis chain elongation monitoring system CCM (Chain Condition Monitoring) measures the wear elongation of chains in operation and gives maintenance staff early warning that the chain is worn and needs to be replaced.

The CCM system can be quickly and easily integrated in numerous chain applications and retrofitted in existing plants and machines without the need for special add-on components for the chain. The device determines the wear in a chain drive and notifies maintenance personnel where and when preventive maintenance is required. Operating state and wear status are indicated by LEDs and readings can be transmitted to a computer through USB and viewed with a special interface. Because measurement is contactless, the chain drive is not affected in any way: no additional deflection pulleys or supports are needed.
