Printing Industry

The UK Printing industry uses cutting-edge production technologies. Companies operating in this sector require chain that is durable, reliable and has a long wear-life to help minimise production downtime.

Chain supplied to the Printing Industry Chain is supplied in a variety of materials and finishes:

Preloading of Chain – to help reduce fatigue and extend the wear life of chain, Donghua’s Attachment Chain comes pre-loaded as standard. Chain with little or no pre-load applied will suffer significant elongation during initial use and will need to be changed sooner which means increased down-time. 

Matching of Chain – we match our Attachment Chain to within very close tolerances to ensure the attachment links engage with the sprockets together thereby eliminating undue stress which is a major cause of fatigue failures on attachments.

Reduced Maintenance – where chain maintenance is difficult or needs to be minimised, our Self-Lubricating chain is the ideal solution.

Specific chain for the Printing industry includes:

Universal Attachment Chain: Donghua’s Universal Attachment Chain can replace 99 per cent of other manufacturers’ chain providing a ‘one chain fits all’ solution. It is built in the UK and is pre-loaded, matched & tagged as standard.

Roller Chain: Donghua’s precision Roller Chain range is popular in the UK and is available in 25ft and 10ft lengths as well as standard 5 metre boxes.

Conveyor Chain: Donghua’s high performance Conveyor Chain is used across a spectrum of industries including the printing sector and is known for its high fatigue and long wear-life.

Self-Lubricating Chain: Our Self-Lubricating (SLR) Chain is ideal for use where chain lubrication is difficult or undesirable.
