French term or phrase:chaine bracelet
This appears as part of a description of conveyor equipment for a cementation plant.
Entraînement des rouleaux entre eux par chaîne bracelet inox pas de 15,8
Any ideas what this might be in English? I can only think of linked chains.
Thanks to you both for your suggestions. In the absence of any confirmation from the client as to what this actually entails, I feel unable to select either answer. I'm inclined to go with the roller-to-roller chain drive suggested above, but can't vouch for whether that's actually what it is.
A tangential drive beneath the
rollers has a number of advantages when compared with
Each roller is connected to a chain that runs along the
whole conveyor at a tangent to all the rollers or from
ROLLER TO ROLLER IN A LOOP; which connects, finally, to the
"Roller-to-roller chain" is not a concept, though, since any
old chain is used for the purpose. Soooo ...... you have to
reparse (your question, at least), and your "Entraînement
des rouleaux entre eux par chaîne bracelet" will become
"roller-to-roller chain drive"
I've queried this with the client, but until he comes back to me with confirmation of what's involved here, a colleague suggested the following:
Here we have a description of tangential drive and
"ROLLER-TO-ROLLER" drive, my first thought: http://www.interroll.com/en/products/conveyor_rollers/techni...
Than we have this, in the section (LH side) on "Curves":
Torque transmission with chains
Using a chain as a drive medium only allows a limited number
of roller pitches, which always have to be a multiple of the
chain pitch of ½". CHAIN DRIVE IS ONLY FEASIBLE IN A CURVE
USING THE ROLLER-TO-ROLLER METHOD http://www.interroll.com/en/products/conveyor_rollers/techni...
Chain driven roller: Either tangential (friction-driven) or
roller-to-roller (utilising simplex chain and sprockets from
ROLLER TO ROLLER). Belt conveyor: Horiz
Explanation: Some metal watch bracelets are cunningly designed to have as little space as possible between the links. I suspect this may be the meaning here, especially for a conveyor belt where you don't want things falling through the gaps.
