How our chain conveyors work
Chain conveyors are available in two types: a two-track chain conveyor and a three-track chain conveyor. The chain conveyors are used to transport pallets sideways. A three-track chain conveyor is mainly used if both half pallets and whole pallets need to be transported. Thanks to its modular structure in normal and/or stainless steel, it is possible to create any type of chain conveyor you need. ARCO also offers other options such as stoppers, angle transfer devices, and end stops.
Use of our chain conveyors
As chain conveyors are made of normal or stainless steel, they are highly suitable for transporting fully loaded pallets and half pallets. Chain conveyors are mainly used as internal transport, in the recycling sector, Agri & Food sector, and logistics industry.
Advantages of our chain conveyors
Implementing pallet chain conveyors in your production process offers you several advantages, such as:
- Integration in existing production processes
- Low maintenance costs
- All our conveyors can be made to measure.
In addition to chain conveyors, ARCO also supplies conveyor belts, roller conveyors, lifts, spiral conveyors, modular conveyor belts, and shuttle roller conveyors. Our experts will be happy to help you find the right solution for your product and production process.

To achieve this, more is needed than good service. View the supplement to our hardware services below.
What our customers have to say
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘ARCO has simplified our production process. Thanks to the comprehensive package of services and the customized solutions, ARCO is the ideal supplier for us.’
‘Looking back on this project, we have to say that the cooperation with ARCO was very smooth. We joined forces and implemented the best solution for our production line. Where we previously used many manual and labour-intensive processes, we now have a fully automated system that enables us to work very efficiently.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘We greatly appreciated ARCO’s ability to respond quickly. But not only that, they demonstrated exceptional creativity when devising the solution and the various test set-ups that they developed to test the design. The close cooperation between ARCO and ourselves facilitated the successful implementation of this particular packaging line.’
‘We know ARCO as a no-nonsense company that believes in workable and affordable solutions. This is what sets ARCO apart from other companies. They also have all the necessary knowledge in-house to create a strong and efficient line. We don’t know what the future holds, but we will certainly be happy to work together again.’
‘ARCO’s weighing line has had a major impact on our production. Our new system cuts product losses by up to 6%. It was a successful project and a rewarding collaboration.’
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
