We specialize in Chain-On-Edge Spindle Conveyors, the heart of a Finishing Systems, and offer sizes to handle a full range of product. From small light parts to large heavy tall parts, up to 200 lbs and 48" high. Each Chain-On-Edge Spindle Conveyor System is custom configured with modular components to meet your facility and process requirements.

Our design is unique to the Finishing Industry, it is extremely durable, stable, accurate, and low friction and is designed specifically for the demanding conditions of high production finishing, coating and processing.

Available Chain-On-Edge Conveyor Types:

  • Standard duty for small / light parts on 1", 1 1/2", 2", or 3" centers
  • Medium duty for parts in the 5-30 lbs range
  • Heavy duty for large parts up to 200 lbs

Spindle Types:

  • Free-rotating with and without ball bearings
  • Non-rotating
  • Detent-type in 90 or 180 degree increments (custom increments available as well)

Many Chain-On-Edge Conveyors designs, other than ours, are utilized today in the finishing industry. There are: drag types with wear strips, top of track cart types, inverted overhead conveyor types, plastic channel guided types and of course, the hollow pin chain back-to-back channel track copycat v-wheel types. The list goes on and on. While these designs are adequate for some applications, most are limited in load capacity, product stability, durability and positioning accuracy.

In the past, many OEM's offering Chain-On-Edge Conveyor Finishing Systems struggled with the limitations of their conveyor design. Recognizing this, we have brought to the industry a design that has taken over 20 years to develop and perfect. Today we work with many OEM's and System Integrators utilizing our Chain-on-Edge Spindle Conveyors. Our design has proven to the best choice for the demanding conditions of finishing.

1 Spindle Assembly Rigid, accurate, high load capacity, free spinning, non-rotating or detented. Greasable for long life and smooth operation.
2 Chain Guard Minimizes chain contamination and are easily removed to clean.
3 Spindle Guide Bearings Dual sealed upper bearings ride on opposing insides of precision track slot to eliminate spindle wobble.  Allows for rotating off-balance loads, and high-accuracy automation.
4 Rotation Sprocket Sprocket or v-belt sheave options, protected inside of track to minimize contamination.  Location between upper guide bearings and lower v-wheel allows for stable and smooth chain or belt engagement.
5 Spindle Rotation Bearings Available on HD Series conveyor only, greasable upper tapered roller bearing, and lower radial/thrust bearing.  Allows for smooth rotation of heavy and off-balance loads.
6 Conveyor Chain ANSI precision solid pin conveyor series roller chain with pre-stressed and lubricated bushings.  Some features of the chain is custom designed for Precision Conveyor for our exclusive use.
7 V-Wheel Self-cleaning, v-locked load wheels with ball bearings and axle ride on a precision cold finished v-guide bar.
8 Conveyor Track Precision cold finished upper slot guides and lower v-guide bar, heavy gauge, precision laser cut reinforcement ribs with flanged connections.  All track and turns are modular allowing bolted connections, no field welding required.
