The Alpine System uses multi-flex chain with a unique knuckle hinge arrangement providing extra strength compared to conventional side-flexing table top chain. The chain also provides the ability to flex in multiple directions.
Alpine Systems offer in-line first-in, first-out product transport, and can be designed to elevate, lower or buffer products between machines. Alpine Systems can also be installed as offline accumulators; configured to either pre-store product or for product storage during downstreamproduction stoppages.
Longer runs with a single drive are possible since the multi-flex chain used in conjuction with anti-friction turn discs prevents chain tension build-up.
