Packaging Industry

The packaging industry is experiencing a boom following an increase in demand for packaged products. Companies operating in the sector require chains that are durable, reliable and have a long wear life to help minimize maintenance downtime.

Supplied to the Packaging Industry, the chain is available in a variety of materials and finishes:

Chain Preloaded – to help reduce fatigue and extend the wear life of the chain, Donghua’s Link Chain comes preloaded as standard. Chain with little or no preload applied will stretch significantly during initial use and will need to be replaced sooner, meaning more downtime.

Chain Fit – we match our Link Chain to very close tolerances to ensure that the link links fit together with the sprockets, thus eliminating excessive stress on the links which is the main cause of fatigue failures.

Reduced Maintenance – where chain maintenance is difficult or needs to be minimized, our Self Lubricating chain is the ideal solution.

Specialized chain for the Packaging Industry includes:

Roller Chain: Donghua’s precision Roller Chain is popular in the UK and is available in 25-foot and 10-foot lengths as well as standard 5-foot boxes. It is suitable for simple drives with large diameter sprockets or complex drives with multiple sprockets and high loads.

Universal Link Chain: Donghua’s Universal Link Chain can replace 99 percent of other manufacturers’ chains, providing a ‘one chain fits all’ solution. It is manufactured in the UK and is pre-loaded, matched and labeled as standard.

Conveyor Chain: Our high performance Conveyor Chain is used in a range of industries including the packaging sector and is known for its high fatigue and long wear life.

Stainless Steel Chain: Corrosion resistance ensures maximum wear life.

Self Lubricating Chain: Our self-lubricating (SLR) chain is ideal for situations where chain lubrication is difficult or undesirable.
