Steel chain used in combination with plastic covers
Features a high allowable load while minimizing scratches to items placed directly on the chain for conveyance.
Base chain specifications:
NP Series (nickel plating)
Lambda Series (lube-free)
SS Series (SUS304)
Features Has a higher allowable load than plastic block chain (7x RSP60 for RS60-SC), making it ideal for long conveyor layouts. Uses plastic for the covers that directly convey items, thereby preventing scratches on the items. Selection of six chain pitches available for use in a wide variety of applications. Allowable load comparison
Comparison with plastic block chain (RS80-SC and RS100-SC are not shown because there is no comparable plastic block chain size to compare them with.)
2. Construction and connecting links The connecting links are designed especially for SnapCover Chains. Connecting link plates can be removed because plastic covers are attached. Be aware that SnapCover Chain cannot use standard connecting links (cotter pins/spring clips).
3. Reference Number System
(1) Chain size: RF06B, RS40, RS50, RS60, RS80, RS100 (2) Base chain specs: Blank = Standard series, NP = NP series, LMC = Lambda series, LM = Lambda series (for RF06B only), SS = SS Series (3) Model: SC = SnapCover Chain (4) Plastic cover material: A = Standard series, E = Electroconducive series (5) *CL is used only when there are connecting links.
Plastic covers Standard series (base link) Standard series (connecting link) Electroconducive series
Material: Polyacetal (white) Material: Polyacetal (light blue) Material (base link and connecting link): Electroconducive polyacetal (black) Used in general applications. Connecting links can be easily identified.* Used to prevent dust from clinging to the chain from static electricity, and to prevent electrical noise and sparks. (Volume resistivity 1 x 10 6 Ω·cm) Cannot be used in conjunction with Electroconducive Series in order to preserve its electroconducive properties.
