Finger protection

Finger protection
German chain specialist Flexon has introduced its new Elite power and free conveyor chains. Featuring finger and component protection, the power and free conveyor chains are gentle with chain components and conveyed goods as well as boosting safety.

Standard power and free conveyor chains have an enlarged conveying roller every other segment, which transports the conveyed materials and allows the chain to pass underneath queued material without damaging it. The chain bushings, which are attached to the inner chain links, take up the spaces between the conveying rollers. On the new Elite power and free conveyor chains these bushings cover the spaces between the conveying rollers almost fully in order to provide a complete protection for chain components and conveyed goods.

These special power and free chains also make a significant contribution to enhancing safety at work, preventing fingers from getting accidentally trapped between the chain rollers.
