Research and Development

As a British manufacturer of bespoke and engineered conveyor chain, we are constantly and consistently developing our manufacturing processes and products, in order to maintain our position as a global supplier of high quality conveyor chains. We regularly review any areas where we feel that improvement can be made, whilst still adding value for our customers.

Recent research and developments include;

  • Bespoke steel grades for conveyor chain components
  • Prolonged corrosion testing in varying environments, utilising a wide range of coatings and corrosive chemicals
  • Bespoke bearing design, to reduce the chance of slip stick and therefore roller flatting
  • Robotic welding, to minimise the chance of attachment failure whilst ensuring consistency and quality
  • Investment in a Mazak 5 axis CNC machining centre, to ensure repeatability and remove human error
