Caterpillar Drive Chain
Conveyors are a huge part of manufacturing around the world, being used for everything from moving small consumer packaged goods to automobile parts through a series of stops in a warehouse. Caterpillar drive chains are specially designed for use in conveyors, and they are an essential part of driving drop-forged chain conveyors. High-quality induction-hardened, forged steel makes up the drive dogs that are featured on this specific type of roller chain. Caterpillar drive chains are manufactured to work with a forged rivetless chain and used with various distances between forged dogs. The dog height and width can vary depending on the drop forged chain that it’s utilized with. Caterpillar drive chains have exceptional strength, performance and working life due to their heat-treated components. Please contact PEER Chain for further specifications on Caterpillar drive chain.

Uses of Caterpillar Drive Chains
Caterpillar drive chains have been used in automotive production facilities for decades, as an easy way to move heavy components around manufacturing plants. Heavy duty caterpillar chains are flexible enough to work in this challenging situation, while also minimizing chain elongation from wear over time. Perhaps the most important aspect for the long-term usage of the caterpillar drive chains is that they require ongoing lubrication for maximum performance and longevity. Using sufficient lubrication reduces the overall wear rate, noise, and corrosion, and also minimizes power absorption and operating temperatures. Caterpillar drive chains and other conveyor chains are also used extensively in a multitude of overhead conveyor systems.
Our high-quality caterpillar drive chains are the ideal solution for your conveyor needs. We work tirelessly to ensure that we only source the finest materials and craftsmanship for our chains and sprockets.
