Anti-backbend chains are flexible only on one side for pushing loads and for bridging gaps without guides. Custom anti-backbend chains developed by iwis are used all over the world in applications such as medical technology, conveyor systems, building services engineering or machine tools.
iwis anti-backbend chains are characterized by their compact design. They are suitable for transmitting compressive and tensile forces, making it possible to bridge relatively long gaps without guides. These chains operate in a similar way to a linear drive so a continuously circulating chain drive is not required.
