Chain / Indexing Conveyors

Chain Conveyors / Index Conveyors

At Unitech, we manufacture chain conveyors, which we also refer to as chain index conveyors. They are produced to the highest quality and meet all hygienic standards.

Our machines have been utilised in numerous ready meal production lines. Either as standalone meal assembly units or part of an automated system, with fully integrated recipe controlled depositors.

How do our Chain Conveyors work?

Chain index conveyors are used in many industries. They are designed to move items down an assembly line.

Index Conveyors

Our machines can hold the product in place while it is transported, making them ideal for specialised filling and process applications such as ready meal production lines.

The conveyor is powered through a continuous chain arrangement, driven by a stepper motor for quick and accurate indexing.

We can design the chain conveyors to suit the required function and layout that you require. This can include various flight arrangements and conveying mediums.
