1. Table or Mat Top / Modular Chain Conveyor
A table top conveyor chain is created by joining together a series of slats or links, similar to a bike chain. The simplicity of table tops makes it a very versatile chain for several other types of applications as well.
Our line of table top and mat top conveyors are designed with flexibility to customize the conveyor to the application and customer specification. The conveyors are all available in mild steel (powder coat painted) or stainless steel with various wear strips and return ways to match chain selection. The strips are held in place by a metal frame which is supported by either the floor on legs or suspended from the ceiling on drop down hangers. A variety of upright styles and side rail selections are available to best handle the containers or materials being conveyed. Sanitary conveyor design features are available for high sanitation applications with direct food contact.
You can use multiple lines on a large frame to create a single filer or extra space for product accumulation. More specialized variations of table top chain are used in manipulation devices such as grippers and helical twists.
