Modular Flattop Chain Conveyor System

A new system of flattop or tabletop chain conveyors is being introduced by mk Automation, Inc. to meet many applications in high volume product handling. Modular sub-assemblies including
drive units, straight track and curves allow for the quick and economical assembly of systems involving any length or complexity of layout.

mk Automation's new system is based on precision aluminum profile frames with accuracy and ease of "system building" augmented by full length t-slots for assembling components, such as: side-frames, drive units, supports, guide rails, etc. A wide assortment of flat top chain choices including steel (carbon or stainless) and thermoplastic (acetate) is available in all standard industry widths, including 3¼, 4, 4½, 6, 7½, 10 and 12". Conveyor chain choices include: all plastic, all steel, and roller chain with snap-on flights in straight running or side-bow/side-flex types. All chains run and return on low friction, long-wearing UHMW Polypropylene wear strips. Chain return paths are enclosed for appearance, cleanliness and safety. System layout needs may be met with independent straight or curved sections as well as complex assemblies with one continuous flexible chain negotiating straights and curves.

The modular mk flat top chain conveyor systems are ideal for product transportation and accumulation in many process areas of the bottling, food packaging, brewing, soft drink, pharmaceutical, snack baking, candy and precision manufacturing industries.
