IWIS High-Performance Grip Chains Reliably Clamp and Transport Thin Materials



IWIS high-performance Grip Chains available from SKF Motion Technologies enable reliable feeding, transporting, and positioning of soft foils, plastics, and other thin packaging materials with large areas.

These chains feature wear- and corrosion-resistant nickel-plated clamping elements as standard to promote optimized performance and service life in any packaging operation.

Styles include single- or double-row chains and grippers with one or two tips. Differing levels of spring force allow an extremely wide range of materials to be gripped gently for precise positioning and conveyance.

A unique swiveling action designed into the grippers promotes proper and consistent feeding of materials to be transported. Grippers open by running against a control disc (such as a chain wheel hub), which causes them to swivel outside and out of the way.

Initial lubrication is provided and approved for use in food-related applications.

Special gripper designs can be developed and differing numbers of coils and wire-spring diameters are available to satisfy application-specific requirements.
