Why does the reinforced drag chain break?

Reinforced towline, also known as plastic tank chain, is made of reinforced nylon, the main raw material and formula is added to it. It is made by injection molding machine. Compared with ordinary plastic towline, it has stronger strength, can run at high speed and has low noise. The pressure and tensile load, good toughness, high elasticity, wear resistance, flame retardancy. It has stable performance at high and low temperatures, and is resistant to oil and salt, and has certain acid and alkali resistance. Applicable to various types of machine tools, robots, transportation machinery, measuring instruments, handling devices, Heavy Duty Drag Link other drive control such as CNC machine tools, machining centers, automated machinery and production lines. As a protective device for wires, cables, liquids, and gas hoses, it can be used with machines and mechanical equipment. The moving parts operate in a coordinated manner, can exert the ability of safety protection and guidance, can extend the service life of the protected wire, cable, liquid and gas hose, reduce consumption, and can greatly improve the wire, cable, liquid, and The chaotic distribution of air hoses makes them neatly and regularly arranged together, which can enhance the overall artistic modeling effect of machine tools and mechanical equipment.
The fracture of the reinforced drag chain is a problem that easily occurs during the use of customers. Its appearance affects normal use and may also cause loss to the customer. It is a problem that cannot be ignored, then the reinforced drag chain appears What is the problem with this situation?
Question 1: Material problem
Generally, high-quality reinforced drag chains should choose nylon, but some choose polypropylene in pursuit of low prices. However, polypropylene itself is relatively brittle. This type of drag chain is prone to breakage when it is used. This is a common reason. In this situation, it is recommended that customers choose to use nylon drag chains, after all, it is cheap or not good.
Problem 2: Climate factors cause the break of the reinforced drag chain
Climate generally refers to low temperature weather.
Problem 3: The copy is too large, causing a break
The use of any product requires a range, so as a reinforced drag chain itself, there is also a range. When the range is exceeded, under high load and long-term operation overload, it is easy to break. In this case, it is recommended to choose to use a steel drag chain with a larger load.
drag chains have been widely used in CNC machine tools, electronic equipment, stone machinery, glass machinery, fire-fighting machinery and equipment, overweight transportation equipment, door and window machinery, injection molding machines, manipulators, automated warehouses, etc. Reinforced drag chains are suitable for reciprocating motion occasions, and can traction and protect built-in cables, oil pipes, air pipes, water pipes, etc.
