Leaf chain also called as forklift chain, includes AL, BL/LH, LL series. Our range of leaf chain for materials handling applications is used worldwide for straddle carriers, forklift trucks and on major civil engineering works such as flood defence barriers.
Plates are made from a special steel which can withstand sudden loads and provides maximum resistance to breakage.
Pins are manufactured from a special steel which has excellent resistance to bending. This increases the wear life of the chain.
Inner Link Plates
Movement of the inner plates is improved by close control of the pin and plate hole dimensions. This reduces rubbing (friction) to a minimum so the chain operates more economically and efficiently.
Pitch (distance between each pin or plate hole) accuracy and pin hole diameters (holes in link plates) are maintained on every component during manufacture. This ensures consistent precision performance and good movement of the leaf chain joints.
