Chain manufacturer iwis antriebssysteme GmbH publishes its new product catalogue of Elite-branded high-performance roller and conveyor chains. With more than 140 pages the new edition contains comprehensive information for engineers, designers and industrial distributors in both English and German language. The catalogue can be downloaded at www.iwis.de/catalogues and is available in printed form from iwis.
The new Elite catalogue has been fully revised and updated. It now also contains the Everlast Plus range – a new generation of maintenance-free roller chains with an extended service life through reduced wear. Also new is a section about the Rapid Service for special-design Elite chains, such as roller chains with different attachment parts and extended pins, which can now be produced in iwis’ expanded Wilnsdorf factory, on demand with a lead time of 48 hours.
Individual short codes on each catalogue page help quickly find the right chain for any application in the Chain Finder product database on the iwis web site: Simply enter the short code in a browser, select the required chain and send off an enquiry. At iwis, enquiries are reliably forwarded to the responsible person, who can immediately deal with them directly. QR codes in the catalogue allow enquiries to be sent directly by smart phone.
To make it easier to find the right-sized chain in the catalogue, the table of contents is supplemented with a pitch index, which lists the chains by pitch size. The catalogue also contains a comprehensive questionnaire for enquiries about the design of chain drives. A section about chain lubrication with details of various lubrication methods and lubricants rounds off the new catalogue.
Besides Elite chains iwis’ programme comprises precision and high-performance roller chains, conveyor chains, maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant chains, accumulation chains, special-purpose conveyor chains, chains for agricultural machinery, flyer chains, flat-top chains and modular belts for industrial applications as well as chains and accessories for agricultural machinery and timing drive systems.
