Metal Processing  

The metal processing industry has special conveyor needs. The weight of the materials, distance to be conveyed, and the environment make great demands on chain. Union® Conveyor Chains are designed to stand up to the punishing conditions as raw metals are turned into finished goods. We offer a variety of Conveyor Chains for the metal processing industry or can manufacture a chain to meet your exact specifications.

Flat Top Chains

Flat Top Chains are designed to convey ingots, billets, large structural shapes, upended coils, and more to and from process operations. The flat top plate design offers large areas to evenly distribute product load. This minimizes the effect of transfer impacts that can cause product damage. In addition, the top plate protects the chain joint from unwanted exposure to heat or abrasive particles. Because of the heavy load, bearing rollers are widely used to provide the lowest chain tension and trouble-free operation.

Coiled Wire Chains

Coiled Wire Chains are designed to run conveyors in hot wire mills. These conveyors act as cooling lines, transferring continuous loops of hot wire, which are coiled after cooling down. Coiled Wire Chains are offered with special M-style attachments at every pitch to force the wire to fall between as it is loaded onto the moving conveyor.

Coil Conveyor Chains

Move coils, pipe, tubing, or other large, round shapes with Gull Wing Chains or Saddle Attachments on Roller Conveyor Chains. The “V” shape is designed to accommodate a range of diameter sizes that run within the process. The saddle or “V” plate corner edges can be ground smooth to avoid scratching product during transfers. Gull Wing Chains or Saddle Attachments on Roller Conveyor Chains can be adapted to a variety of conveyor configurations, from top plates to bearing rollers and from inboard to outboard carrier rollers.

Pusher Attachment Chains

Pusher Attachment Chains are designed for cooling beds where temperatures can reach 1,900°F. Special finger attachments push against sliding or rolling product such as billet or bars, keeping it on-line. Pusher Attachment Chains are usually designed with three to six strands across to side push evenly through the bar length. Attachments are generally MM-style with top rollers or pusher bars that project upward to engage product for side transfer movement. Designs are customized to your operation, based on the width or shape of the conveyed material.

Draw Bench Bar and Pin Chains

Draw Bench Bar and Pin Chains are the tension linkage that pulls a sizing mandrel through tubing. Mandrels interfere with the smaller relative tube size to create very high chain pull. So the chain must provide very high ultimate strength and long service life.

Make In-Line Inspections Easy

Put machinery access at your fingertips. ONE-TOUCH INSPECTION DOOR® is a dust- and rain-tight inspection and service door for conveyors, as well as processing and handling equipment. These pre-fabricated units are in-stock and ready-to-go for easy installation at the job site. Once in place, ONE-TOUCH INSPECTION DOOR allows for quick and simple inspection without the need for special tools: just lift the lever! No bolts to loosen and no covers to misplace. One touch is all it’s that simple.
