Pennine Industrial’s HYPERDRIVE 2 Pin Conveyor Chain for high speed bottle production

  

Pennine has worked for three years with the National Physics Laboratory, local universities, specialist steel suppliers and metal treatment companies to reach the launch of its New 2 Pin Laser Headed Inverted Tooth Conveyor Chain.

After three years of development and extensive testing both at Pennine Industrial’s UK manufacturing facility and under glass with glass container manufacturers, has launched its 2 Pin Laser Headed Inverted Tooth Conveyor Chain.

The Hyperdrive Chain has been specifically designed for the future of glass container handling. The Hyperdrive Chain will excel in the most demanding environments of high-speed glass production.

Over the past three years, Pennine Industrial has worked with the National Physics Laboratory, local universities, specialist steel suppliers and metal treatment companies and undertaken extensive stress testing and redesigning of both the Pins and Link apertures which are used in the manufacture of the new Hyperdrive Chain.

Only the highest quality European manufactured steels are used in Pennine’s UK factories to produce this new range of chains. CNC controlled heat treatment of individual parts results in high quality components and a chain with minimum elongation.

Unlike the original single pin Pennine Premium Conveyor chain assembled by Pennine for over 40 years, the new range of Hyperdrive Chains have a newly designed two pin rolling bearing joint that reduces vibration and gives a smoother cleaner engagement around the drive sprockets.

The reduced vibration at higher conveying speed, mean less elongation and longer chain life.

When used in conjunction with the company’s improved involute tooth sprockets, customers will get increased life with reduced maintenance resulting in less loss of production.

Key points of the new Hyperdrive chains:

* Highest performing chain in the most demanding environments

* Designed for use in high speed production

* Laser welded pins to prevent pin head protrusion

* Less maintenance and elongation than single pin chains at higher speeds

* Direct replacement for most other inverted tooth conveyor chains

Hyperdrive Chain is available for the glass industry throughout the world either directly or through Pennine’s network of 22 agents and partners.
