At Drinktec in Munich, Germany, in September 2009, Iwis introduced flat-top chains for the beverages and packaging industries.

The flat-top chains, which will be sold under the Flexon brand name, can be used for nearly all conveying tasks that require a flat transport surface.

Typical applications include conveying of glass and plastic bottles, cans, cases, barrels and packing drums in bottling and packaging lines.

Flexon flat-top chains are available in various plastic and stainless-steel versions, as linear and curved tracks.

The low-contamination materials fulfil the hygiene requirements in the beverages and packaging industry.

The chains have a high-quality finish and flatness.

With their low-friction coefficients, they are also very energy efficient.

Flexon flat-top chains are low-maintenance and have a long service life.

Depending on their application, plastic flat top chains can have certain advantages over stainless-steel types.

In conveying systems, for example, they generate up to 80 per cent less noise.

The plastic elements are up to 40 per cent lighter, which boosts their conveying capacity or reduces the required drive power.

Because of their better resistance to chemicals, they can be cleaned with agents that are unsuitable for metal chains or would require intensive maintenance.

Iwis also provides straight and curved modular belts, conveyor chains for transporting barrels, and chain and deflection wheels.

Iwis also develops tailored solutions for customers.

Also available are: timing drive systems, precision and high-performance roller chains, conveyor chains, maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant chains, power and free conveyor chains, special-purpose conveyor chains and chains for agricultural machinery as well as chain wheels and accessories for machine and plant construction, the packaging, printing and food and beverages industries, material handling systems, and many other industrial applications.
