Road Header Chain & Dint Header Chain

Road headers and dint headers are essential pieces of continuous mining equipment. Our high-strength chains are capable of high loads and continuous operations in even the most demanding and abrasive applications. Heading machines are used for wall face development, and dint header equipment is used for floor grading of roadways affected by strata disturbance and coal production. Having a high-quality chain is essential in these continuous mining tasks to prevent costly breakdowns and delays in the mining operation. The chains work parallel to each other with fastened flights/ slats between the two of them. These slats carry material from one point to the next while the driven chains withstand the load of the material. These chain assemblies are custom manufactured; the drawing below is an example of a typical road or dint header chain assembly.
