About Accumulator Chains
Accumulator chains are employed, when accumulation of piece goods during transportation is required. The chain runs on lateral support rollers, whereas the conveyor roller in the middle runs freely.
The particular advantages of this type of chain lie in the simple control, the exact guiding possibilities as well as in the smooth transition from one direction to another without abrupt acceleration. During intentional or unintentional accumulation of the transported piece goods no excessive impact pressure is put on the following transport units since the power and free conveyor chain will continue to run smoothly under the goods until the end of the accumulation, when transportation will continue due to friction.
