In addition to supplying individual leaf chains, anchor bolts, blocks and pins, FB Chain offers pre- assembled leaf chain kits that can be issued directly onto assembly lines.
Our leaf chain assembly kits can be tailor-made to suit an OEM’s specific requirements, to address a particular application or assembly need and to ease scheduling and supply-related issues.
In a leaf chain assembly, leaf chain is pre-cut to length (which eliminates chain stock loss) and assembled with individually designed leaf chain anchor bolts and blocks (leaf chain clevises).
- Coatings, lubricants and surface finishes are also applied to all parts according to application. Leaf chain and anchors (clevises) can be delivered in temporary protective plastic tubing to reduce leaf chain contamination and assist clean assembly. Permanent protection can be provided in the form of heat-shrunk Neoprene applied to specially lubricated leaf chain and is recommended for difficult environments.
- Specific heat treatments, integral bushings or bearings, for example, can all be supplied to specification. Complete component packages bring together the whole family of parts required and including items as diverse as composite bushings and nylon stops.
- Other complementary parts can be supplied including mast pulleys (sheaves), leaf chain rollers and mast pivot pins.
