Wippermann AFS clips are manufactured for standard accumulator chains with conveyor roller diameters of 24 mm and 26 mm. Due to the flat design of the AFS clip the construction-related gap between the conveyor rollers is completely closed. Hence equipment and finger protection is considerably increased.
Retrofitting of this innovative and easily mountable protective safety feature is possible for every standard accumulator chain, with conveyor roller diameters of 24 mm and 26 mm. The two-piece clip is mounted by simply snapping it onto the inner link bushing. No tools are necessary, since the pieces can easily be snapped directly onto the chain from above. The correct position is guaranteed by a clear ‘locking in place’ of the clip during mounting. Owing to its innovative hinge system it also covers the danger zone in the bending range of the chain and therefore both-way bends, i.e. for omega drives, are possible.
Thus the wear-resistant AFS clips ensure a trouble-free operation of conveyor and assembly systems and contribute considerably to operational safety, according to the statutory machinery directives.
