    Longstanding experience with chains and sprockets

    The KettenWulf Group invests its more than 90 years of experience and knowledge in the development of innovative and groundbreaking technologies. The result is a wide range of technically matured products for the wood industry and the highest degree of know-how on the original equipment manufacturer market. All products, such as transport chains, conveyor chains, drive chains and sprockets, meet the highest quality standards.

    Round timber transport
    High requirements for drive and conveyor chains

    In the field of round timber transport our chains are used in the most varied sub-processes. Drive chains and conveyor chains transport the round timber in the infeed log conveyor, root reducer, the cap saw, debarking, in the sorting line, in the block transport line and during log turning.

    The requirements for the chains used in these sub-processes are high and as versatile as the individual work steps. The quality requirements for our products, which are usually adapted to the individual requirements of the conveying tasks, provides our customer with a decisive competitive edge.

    Board transport and saw line
    Conveyor chains for board transport

    The board transport in the wood industry is accomplished using the most varied designs of conveyor systems, tailored to the respective conveying task. KettenWulf offers a wide selection of conveyor chains which are usually specifically tailored to the corresponding work processes.

    Our conveyor chains are used in the saw line, during chipper infeed, board separation, board sorting, board storage and palletising. The conveyor chains must meet the highest quality requirements.

    Chip conveyors
    Chips: Use of transport chains and conveyor chains

    Chip transport takes place in different work processes within wood processing and finishing. Excess chips are transported during root reduction, in the cap saw, during debarking, in the sorting line, in the block transport line and during board sorting and board storage, using a chip conveyor.

    Our chains are also used in the recycling industry, for example to supply the combustion process with fuel. Given our longstanding experience in the wood industry, all chains are tailored optimally to the required tasks.

    Innovative transport, conveyor and drive chains

    In the field of the wood processing industry KettenWulf also offers special and standard chain solutions for your conveying tasks. Given our large know-how and longstanding experience in this field we are able to develop solutions specifically tailored to your application.

    It does not matter whether you supply us with a drawing, a pattern or just an idea – experienced engineers will develop the best solution for you application in cooperation with you. Our products can be used in almost all wood processing and related industries, for example:

    • Chipboard industry
    • Furniture industry
    • Glued laminated timber industry
    • Paper and cellulose industry
    • Planing mills
    • Wood polishing machines
    Nothing moves without us
