Multiwrap 42 & A5t Overhead Chain Assembly
As an ongoing product supplied to the tissue industry BKC where asked to look in to improving the life and rigidity of this product.
The original equipment manufacturer supplies the chain with a 1″ ‘extended’ pitch chain; this chain does suffer when the machine jams and is susceptible from being twisted when being fitted.
BKC resolved the issue by combining their own carriers, specially hardened and ground bearing pins and a superior quality chain. The solution does not need any change to the machine and is matched to the existing sprockets.
The feedback from our customers is that this chain assembly is completely successful in improving life of the chain and therefore reducing down time, the rigidity issue has been improved and to date no issues have been raised.
