Precision Link Conveyor Overview

IC Series Conveyor

The IC series precision link conveyor is an excellent choice for a robust, accurate linear assembly chassis. Precision machined steel links are accurately advanced with either a fixed motion cam indexer or a servo driven zero-backlash RollerDrive®. Our robust steel conveyor frame preloads the links in all directions. An innovative chain tensioning system and all needle bearing design extends the service life of the conveyor by reducing vibration and eliminating chain stretch. Conveyor lengths are available in 480mm (18.89”) increments.
