Multiple Brands, One Universal Attachment Chain

No matter what brand of chain you use, Donghua’s Universal Attachment Chain will replace 99% of other manufacturer’s chain.

Chain manufacturers design and build attachments that are unique to their own brand of chain, making it difficult to replace with a different make. However, Donghua has designed a range of Attachment Chain that does just that as it has the same critical dimensions.

Their Universal Attachment Chain has been designed specifically for the UK distribution market who supply end-users with chain from a range of manufacturers. Donghua’s unique ‘one chain fits all’ solution, means distributors and end-users are no longer tied into using the same brand for their replacement Attachment Chain.

What makes their Universal Attachment Chain unique is it’s built in the UK. Housed in a purpose-built, technical workshop at Donghua’s UK headquarters and distribution centre in the West Midlands, the facilities have been specifically developed to allow for quick turnaround of standard Attachment Chain and the design and build of bespoke Attachment Chain.

The workshop boasts some impressive machinery including a Chain Length Measuring Machine which measures chain to within 10 microns per metre (that’s thinner than a human hair which is approximately 70 microns) and is capable of measuring up to five metres of chain at a time.

Chain with little or no pre-load will have increased initial elongation before it levels off. To reduce this initial elongation which can often be found in ‘in-house’ built chain, Donghua’s Pre-loading machine pre-stretches Attachment Chain to provide the best possible service life and fatigue life.

When two or more chains are used in parallel, precise positioning is required. Donghua’s Matching Machine matches chain to within a close tolerance for correct tensioning to help ensure the attachment links engage with the sprockets together to eliminate undue stress which can cause fatigue failure of the attachments.

By ensuring Attachment Chain is measured, pre-loaded and matched, Donghua’s Attachment Chain is ready to fit from the box, saving engineer’s valuable time. Add a 72 hour turnaround to quote and deliver ready to fit, you can see why Donghua’s Attachment Chain has become a popular choice in the UK.

With a 25,000 sq ft warehouse which stocks common builds of Attachment Chain and loose attachments, plus a network of UK Product Partners and Stockists who carry their own stock of chain, there’s plenty of Attachment Chain available ex-stock to supply the UK market.
