Marketed under the Flexon brand, iwis has developed magnetic curves for flat top chains. Featuring almost pulsation-free running as a result of uniformly aligned magnetic fluxes throughout all tracks, they convey products in the beverage, food and packaging industries with low tensions and reduced noise.
When the pins on magneting curves transfer from one magnetic field to the next, the holding force is reduced and then increased again causing a slip stick effect. These vibrations can then be transferred to the goods that are being transported, even resulting in goods tipping over.
With the new Flexon magnetic curves, the slip stick effect has been reduced to practically zero by optimising the arrangement of the magnets, adapting the mag- netic field strength and increasing the size of the magnetic fields.
