Positive Drive Chain Edge (PDCE)
When your application requires positive drive, indexing or synchronization, a chain edge design is the practical choice. Positive drive conveyor belt assemblies employing a chain edge are also widely used due to their uniformity in pitch, high tensile strength with relatively light belt/chain weight, and good durability under severe loads.
CUSTOM DESIGNED FOR YOUR APPLICATION
PDCE are truly custom conveyor belts, whereby either standard or special chains are added to a custom designed support system for your product and process. PDCE conveyor belts can be produced using many different materials including various grades of malleable iron, high strength cast alloys, heat treatable malleable iron, stainless and carbon steel.
