Single-strand chain for all application areas

Production

Single-strand chains

Fork link chains as single-strand chains are supplied in pitches between 102 and 315 mm and are always customised and individual solutions. The fork links we used are forged in our own production at the Branscheid Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. KG in Gevelsberg. 

Alongside their short and low-cost transport routes, our fork links are characterised by particularly good material properties. The drop-forged steel and optimum utilisation of the fibre orientation give the links a very high tensile strength and make them particularly robust.

The best single-strand chains

Depending on the application area, fork link chains need to be adapted to the respective requirement. 
We know which type is suitable for your industry and we will find the perfect solution. Standard is no good? Then let's develop your individual product together.

The welding process

We have a flash butt welding machine with an integrated deburring device to optimise the welded joint between the fork link and the driver. The flash butt-welding process is a computer-controlled welding process with parameter logging. Any impairment of the chain link due to uneven preheating is ruled out. 
The result is a homogeneous material structure and a unit between fork link and driver. We also make use of the possibilities of autogenous and inert gas welding. For use in particularly abrasive environments and for a long service life, we reinforce our chain links with high-strength armoured wire.

Thermal waste utilisation

In thermal waste utilisation, conveyor systems are an important component for smooth production processes. Highly functional conveyor chains are essential to ensure that these systems can move materials and clear residues effortlessly.
