Industrial Chains and Belts


Chains and belts are crucial components of conveyor belt systems and numerous other industrial applications. Here we take a look at just a couple of the world leading manufacturers whose products conveyor belts suppliers, Yorkshire-based YB Components especially, can ship fast and free all over the UK and the rest of the world.

Ave Chains

Spanish chain and belt manufacturer Ave Chains are one of the world’s leading producers of conveyor belt components. They mainly design and build plate chains, modular belts and sliders, but also produce variety of frame accessories and sprockets. The products Ave chains suppliers like YB Components supply are used in many different applications in a variety of industries all around the globe.

AVE conveyor chains are available in different tensile strengths according to the application it is needed for, with the minimum tensile strength quite low and the maximum very high. Other customisable elements include the pitch and type of pin and roller. You can also find options with various other variants of specific features. The pins are mostly solid with only some of the Ave Chains products featuring hollow pins for fastening accessory products such as spacers that link two chains running parallel to each other.

Each conveyor belt system will determine the ideal pitch of the required AVE chain according to how it will be used in the application and if there are any unique operating conditions to consider. When identifying the right chain for a particular application, you should also think about what kind of space is available for the operation as well as which necessary accessory products are required for optimal performance.

Modular Belts by Ave Chains

Ave belts manufacture a number of modular belts as well as the world class chain products. These consist of a non-metallic material chain belt, usually plastic, that enables a stable and smooth-running surface for the load being transported. There are several different configurations that the modular belts by Ave Chains are available in. These include an open mesh modular belt and another with a flat top. These two variants determine the belts’ efficiency at circulating air or draining liquid.

The Ave Chains modular belts can form basic loops, inclines and even spirals, for more intricate operations. They are very flexible belts that are suitable for a wide variety of industrial applications, even ones operating at high temperatures.

Convey Xonic Belts

The elastic Convey Xonic power transmission belt features longitudinal ribs that are specially designed for roller conveyors transporting loads of various weights. The Convey Xonic belt manufacturers have ensured that this roller and pallet conveyor belt can handle weights of up to two tonnes.

Smaller jobs are no problem either for Convey Xonic belts, as they are also capable of optimal performance even when handling loads weighing as little as one kilogram.

If you require any Convey Xonic belts, Ave chains or any of the Ave belts manufacture, then contact YB Components who are the UK’s leading conveyor belts suppliers in Yorkshire who ship fast and free all over the UK and the rest of the world.
