Slat Chain Conveyor
The Slat Conveyor Systems are used for general assembly production. The systems require no lubrication and very low maintenance. Slats are connected on two standards of chain by attachments. The construction is such that any slat can be removed easily. Fixtures can be mounted on the Slat for application such as assembly line conveyor. Typical construction of a slat chain Conveyor, slats (formed metal sheet or Plastic) is connected to strands of chain. The chain has special attachment on which these slats are mounted. Slats can be formed easily in 90 or 180 degrees, the construction of these slats is that it can be removed easily.
- Steel Slat Chain
- Plastic Slat Chain
They are also used extensively in food manufacturing applications. Heavy versions of the slat conveyors are often found in freight handling applications where loads and impact are quite high. Traditionally heavy slat conveyors are constructed using hardwood slats fixed onto parallel chains.
Extensively used in bottling & beverage industries
