LAPUA CHAINS – THE BEST CONVEYOR CHAINS IN THE WORLD
The history of Lapua Chains goes back to 1947, when the production of chains for war reparations began in Lapua. Over the course of the company’s almost-70-year history, the same maxim has held true: All chains look the same, but under the surface, quality still matters. This is why customers have shifted their focus from minimising costs to maximising capacity utilisation and productivity. Industries have realised that you can’t make money if you don’t spend it. Forging a competitive advantage and achieving results requires investments in the right places. Machines, chains and other components need to be productive. Lapua chains prove themselves with low life-cycle costs and good performance against their competitors.
The exceptionally long lifespan of Lapua chains is the result of top-of-the-line western materials, best-in-business hardening methods and precise assembly. Every link in our chains is the same quality and strength. Lapua chains are made entirely in Finland. Production is self-sufficient, which means complete control over the manufacture of every single link and full knowledge of where the materials came from.

SNAPIDLE – INGENIOUSLY SIMPLE PATENTED FREE-FLOATING CHAIN TENSIONERS
Patented original free-floating chain tensioners. Thanks to their ingeniously simple design, Snapidle chain tensioners are extremely quick to install and adjust. The chain rides through the tensioner on its side plates, which minimises wear on the chain. Snapidle tensions evenly, guides, quiets and increases both chain and sprocket life. It does not require a mounting device or maintenance. It also works regardless of the direction of rotation.
Snapidle chain tensioners are made in the USA out of 100% stainless steel and UHMW plastic, making them suitable for all applications, including food handling, high-moisture environments and wastewater treatment plants.
Chain World is currently the only importer of Snapidle chain tensioners in Europe.
