Application fields of Drag Chain

ep-drag-chain-3

CNC machine tools

In CNC machine tools, drag chains are used to protect and manage cables, air pipes, hydraulic pipes, etc. to ensure that these pipelines are not damaged or interfered with when the machine tool performs high-speed, high-precision movements.

Automation equipment

In automated production lines, drag chains are often used to connect and control various equipment. Since automated equipment often requires frequent movement and rotation, energy chains can provide sufficient flexibility and protection to cope with various complex movement needs.

Materials Drag Chain is made of

plastic material:
Nylon (PA): Nylon material is widely used in the manufacture of drag chains due to its excellent wear resistance, strength and chemical stability. Nylon drag chains can resist oil, water and many chemicals while maintaining good flexibility and durability.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC): PVC material is also commonly used in the manufacture of drag chains, especially when there are higher cost requirements. PVC drag chains have good wear resistance and corrosion resistance, but may not be as durable as nylon drag chains in extreme environments.
Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE): TPE material is a rubber-elastic plastic used to manufacture high-performance drag chains. TPE drag chain has excellent wear resistance, impact resistance and oil resistance, while maintaining good flexibility and low temperature resistance.

metallic material:
Stainless steel: In some special application scenarios, such as drag chains that need to withstand high loads or extreme environmental conditions, stainless steel and other metal materials may be used. Stainless steel drag chains have extremely high strength and corrosion resistance, but are relatively costly.

Steps and processes for manufacturing Drag Chain

1. Material preparation:
According to the specifications and requirements of the drag chain, select appropriate materials, such as plastic materials such as nylon, PVC or TPE, and possible metal connectors.
Materials are pre-processed, such as cutting, cleaning and drying, to ensure their quality and performance.

2. Mold design and manufacturing:
Design and manufacture molds according to the shape, size and functional requirements of the drag chain. Molds typically include injection molds or die-cast molds used to shape plastic materials into various parts of the energy chain.

3. Injection molding:
The pre-treated plastic material is put into the injection molding machine, and the material is injected into the mold through heat and high pressure.
After waiting for the plastic material to cool and solidify in the mold, open the mold and take out the formed drag chain components.

4. Chain link assembly:
Injection-molded chain links are assembled using specific connections. Common connection methods include hinged, snap-on or screw-fastening.
Ensure that the connection between the chain links is firm and reliable and can withstand the stretching and twisting forces of the drag chain during use.

5. Internal filling and finishing:
Fill the inside of the chain links with appropriate materials, such as polyester fiber or rubber, to increase the flexibility of the drag chain and protect the internal cables.
Organize cables and pipes to ensure they are organized within the drag chain to reduce wear and pinching.

6. Exterior decoration and coating:
Decorate the outside of the drag chain as needed, such as spraying colors, adding textures or labels, etc.
Apply wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant coatings to increase the durability and service life of the drag chain.

7. Quality inspection and testing:
Conduct quality inspections on completed drag chains, including dimensional measurement, appearance inspection, wear resistance and flexibility testing, etc.
Ensure that the drag chain complies with design requirements and relevant standards, and can meet customer needs and usage requirements.
