Forged Link Chain | Drop Forged Chains

Forged link chains are also commonly referred to as drop forged chains and have been in production for hundreds of years. Common applications include mining, wastewater, cement transport, lumber, grain, and many more! Our forged link chains begin their manufacturing process by utilizing premium alloys of steel, they are then cast to form the links and then heat-treated and inspected for quality assurance! We supply the standard series forged link chains through to the triple series as well as custom manufactured forged chains. We also supply forged link chain attachments, flights, and sprockets. Our forged link chains come standard in three different material options; case hardened manganese chrome alloy steel (TN), case hardened chrome nickel alloy steel (CN), and hardened & tempered chrome-moly alloy steel (CD). For additional information or to get a quote on our drop forged chains contact our customer support team and we will be happy to assist you!

Double Series Forged Link Chain

This series has a forged double clevis in which a scraper can be mounted to and retained by a U-bolt or standard fasteners. This allows for some built-in clearance between strands which eliminates any potential problems that may be associated with a mismatch. Double series chains also allow an improved discharge when conveying sticky materials.

Forged Link Chain Sprockets


We supply a range of drop-forged chain sprockets that range in tooth count, bore sizes, and configuration. Our drop-forged sprockets are typically available within 1 to 4 weeks but can be supplied sooner if expediting is required. Most commonly these sprockets are supplied as segmental or Monobloc construction, segmental sprockets offer commercial advantages for long-term needs, thus they are generally preferred. The standard plate material is pre-hardened to 500 Bnh to increase the wear life and prevent premature abrasion, specific materials and hardnesses can be supplied upon request.
