Improving efficiency and safety: Forest Chains
 Jun 19, 2024|View:246

Forests are the largest carbon traps on Earth. They provide crucial habitats for wildlife and are vital resources for humans worldwide. The evolution of logging tools showcases the progress of human society, from primitive axes and saws to chainsaws, and now to modern mechanically powered logging tools. These advancements have significantly modernized forestry production. Forestry conveyor chains play a pivotal role in the efficiency and safety of timber handling processes. As the forestry industry continues to evolve, these chains have become indispensable, revolutionizing the methods of harvesting, processing, and transporting timber.

Forestry conveyor chains seamlessly integrate various stages of the forestry process, from felling trees to processing timber, to pulp and paper. These chains are meticulously engineered to ensure durability, flexibility, and strength, enabling them to withstand the rugged conditions of forests and mills, where heavy loads, harsh weather, and abrasive materials are common. For smooth operation, forestry conveyor chains can accommodate a wide range of attachments and accessories. These attachments serve different purposes, including gripping, lifting, sorting, peeling, and transporting. Whether dealing with logs, processed timber or pulp fiber these forestry conveyor chains offer unparalleled versatility and adaptability.

SHINING offers a variety of Forest Industry conveyor chains, including:

· Offset sidebar welded steel chains

· Narrow series welded steel chains

· Wide series welded steel drag chains

· 81X series chains

· Sharp top roller chains

Welded steel chain, welded steel drag chains and 81X series are SHINING’s main forestry chain products. These chains feature a simple and sturdy structure, providing stable conveying conditions and higher conveying capacity. Their high impact and wear resistance make them well-suited for North American bulk material handling systems. The 81X series, including 81X, 81XH, and 81XHH chains, feature quad-staked pins, solid bushings and solid rollers. All of the components are heat treated to better offer higher load capacity, wear resistance, and extended service life. All versions of welded steel chains, such as WH, WHX, and WHD, play important roles in the timber industry. These chains rely on riveted construction, and heat treated components to ensure excellent toughness and abrasion resistance.


Sharp top chains are a custom variation of high-quality roller chains.  Precision ground Sharp teeth are integral to the outer and/or inner chain plates, manufactured to suit standard roller chain sprockets. The teeth come in different shapes to suit various applications, and the chain is designed for high-speed applications. When transferring logs, cants or boards the sharp teeth can accurately grip the wood with minimal damage, preventing slippage.   


By automating repetitive tasks and streamlining workflows, forestry conveyor chains help maximize productivity and reduce the risks and accidents associated with manual handling, creating a safer working environment for forestry workers. By optimizing the logistics of wood transportation, these chains reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions compared to traditional methods. They also help conserve natural resources and contribute to the long-term sustainability of forests.
