If you had milk with your cereal this morning or a soft drink with your lunch, there’s a high chance the product you held in your hands travelled on a Rexnord conveyor chain at some point in its production or handling process to reach you. As a world leading manufacturer of conveying solutions, Rexnord’s conveying chains are adopted by many original equipment manufacturers in the food and beverage sector.
Rexnord introduced its ground-breaking FlatTop conveyor chains in 1938, starting with the straight-running 815 TableTop® stainless steel chain. These were the world’s first metal chains that integrated a top plate with hinge eyes, giving them the versatility to convey anything from individual units to packaged and cased goods.
The Rexnord FlatTop conveying chains, including the TableTop and MatTop® series, have since been expanded to offer many materials, types and grades, enabling the solutions to be used across a wide range of applications, from beverage filling to case handling, container making, food conveying and even automotive.
Rexnord’s conveying chains are supplied and supported in Australia through Industrial Solutions Australia businesses – namely CBC, BSC and Webster BSC.

The ‘CC’ has given way to ‘LF’ as Rexnord upgrades its popular case conveyor chains, the CC600 and the CC600TAB with new low-friction versions – the LF600 and LF600TAB.
The move to low friction conveyor chains has been gaining momentum in recent years, according to Troy Markland, National Product Manager for Power Transmission at Industrial Solutions Australia.
“The market is evolving. Every plant is looking for chains that last longer and wear less frequently. When you consider that a typical plant replaces between 500 to 1000 feet of conveyor chains per maintenance cycle, the cost savings become significant with longer-lasting chains,” says Troy.
The premium low friction case conveyor chains by Rexnord are manufactured in The Netherlands and are now available in Australia through Industrial Solutions Australia’s businesses – namely CBC, BSC and Webster BSC. “Our customers had heard about these chains being available overseas, and now we have them available locally across all of our branches,”
