A roller chain is suitable for conveying all kinds of boxes, bags, pallets, and other items. Bulk materials, small items, or irregular items need to be transported on pallets or in turnover boxes.

If left in a humid place for a long time, the roller chain is likely to rust, which will definitely affect the product. The quality of the product has a certain impact, which in turn will affect sales.
