Chain conveyor for heavier materials

For conveying heavier materials, a chain conveyor is a suitable solution offering power and traction. The motor of the chain conveyor is connected by chains to sprockets preventing the conveyor from slipping due to the heavy load. You can read more information about such chain conveyor systems here on this page, or contact us for specific questions.

NM Heilig is a leading company in the production of advanced conveyor systems, including chain conveyors. These conveyors are designed to transport a wide variety of materials, including bulk goods, bags and containers. Those systems are robust and durable, and are ideal for use in various industrial environments.

What is a chain conveyor?

A chain conveyor is a belt conveyor, specifically for handling heavy bulk goods. Heavy loads, found in both recycling and bulk handling industries, require large conveyors with a rubber belt to absorb the forces of the impact. Chain conveyors are ideal for transporting heavy loads over long distances. Thanks to the robust construction, these conveyors can withstand heavy loads and are suitable for use in harsh industrial environments. NM Heilig conveyors are designed with reliability and durability in mind, so that customers can rely on their conveyor system to last.
