Chains for paper industry


Paper roll handling

Paper rolls are usually transported with lamella conveyors. A lamella conveyor consists of two chains equipped with plain rollers with bearings. Lamellas have been welded on top of the plain rollers.

There are two main types of lamella conveyors: those which transport paper rolls placed on their sides and those which transport standing paper rolls.



The lamella chain of a paper mill is a significant investment, and as such, it should be expected to last. Usually lamella chains require little maintenance, which means that their operation has to be extremely reliable.


The most significant requirement of a paper mill chain is its ability to bear great loads. With heavy loads such as paper reels, starting the chains usually causes great starting friction.


Due to friction, pressure from the sprocket will apply strain to the bearings, particularly those in plain rollers.

A paper mill's chains should operate as durable components.That is, you only notice their importance when they malfunction. When a problem does occur, the chain cannot always be replaced with any other solution.The conveyor will stop for the duration of the main- tenance, which means that sudden hardware failures will always lead to extra costs and other problems. 

Chain features 

Secure chains are the cheapest

Our chains have 40 per cent higher tensile strength than standard requirements, starting from size group M224.

Thoroughly hardened, extremely durable pins and bushes. The internal surfaces of the bushes are also hardened. 

Re-greasing holes and lubrication create significant savings in the chain’s total life-cycle costs.

Bushes and rollers are made seamlessly from tubes.

Extremely high-quality raw materials and hardening methods.

Bushes can be hardened from the inside.

Choose durability.
