Glass Industry Applications

The requirements in glass production are becoming more and more challenging – primarily the demand for maximum reliability and efficiency. Renold inverted tooth chains meet these requirements – as transport or drive solutions, or as special versions, for example in the sensitive production of optical glass.

Whether extremely hot, ultra-sensitive, or complex – Renold inverted tooth chains remain reliable and efficient even under the most demanding of conditions.
This makes them ideal for a wide range of tasks in the glass industry. They gently transport all hollow glass products or ensure maximum efficiency as a drive solution.
