#aworldwithoutiwis campaign highlights chain applications

19 March 2020

Munich-based chain manufacturer, iwis antriebssysteme, believes a world without iwis could mean less chocolate and less pasta. It is using its #aworldwithoutiwis campaign to highlight some of the applications for its chains.

Since last September, Twitter and LinkedIn users have been able to gain an insight into the diversity of the company. iwis says one thing they learn is that there would not be enough chocolate products without the maintenance-free MEGAlife chains with their special attachments and precise length tolerances.

The process of turning cocoa beans into chocolate, sprinkles, or chocolate coatings day-after-day demands such things as high-quality conveyor chains for chocolate moulds. Many of these come from iwis.

Corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free chains for pasta production

No matter whether we are talking about spaghetti, penne or farfalle, iwis believes the world of pasta production would also be very different without its chains. To ensure that people can continue to enjoy popular pasta products, iwis produces high-performance conveyor chains for production lines. The production of pasta is a precise operation, and it is important that the chains used are corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free and that they run precisely in parallel operation and are wear-optimised. Only then can they guarantee an extended service life and hence trouble-free production of the pasta we all love.

Transporting coffee pods and capsules

The chain manufacturer also believes that, for many people, a world without iwis would bring noticeable changes first thing in the morning. iwis chains that have been manufactured with extreme precision and sorted into sets are used in the production of coffee pods and capsules. Only then are they able to meet the coffee industry’s demands in respect of parallel operation in production machines. The chains are protected against corrosion, optimally lubricated and maintenance-free.

For the coffee industry, this means maximum efficiency thanks to minimum downtime and little loss of material thanks to high precision. The aim is to ensure high quality and quantity when transporting the coffee pods and capsules.

In the food industry, it is important that chains are dry, clean and efficient. The high fatigue strength and wear resistance of iwis chains allows them to meet the strict requirements of food production.

Quiet and fast iwis chains safely convey drinks bottles.

In addition, solutions from iwis are found in the beverage industry. iwis FLEXON flat-top chains ensure stability and safety when conveying Euro, Vichy or long-neck bottles. The flat-top range from iwis quietly and quickly conveys beverages to the designated crates. No matter whether steel, plastic or stainless steel is required, iwis offers a high quality choice of materials.

In addition, innovative iwis systems for condition monitoring and relubrication extend the service life of the 1/3 chain drive, allowing customers to concentrate on their core business instead of dealing with the hassle of unforeseen maintenance work.
