Made in Germany


Our fully automatic machines can bend a wide range of chain types.  Our chains are used as tyre protection chains in mining operations, as sling chains, anchor chains, lock chains or as hoisting chains. Bending machines from schmale Maschinenbau GmbH can process different steel grades and diameters up to 26 mm. Our chain bending machines can process both carbon steel and stainless steel. The chain links can be bent by cold forming, or heated by an integrated induction system and bent in a hot forming process. We can bend more than just chains made of round steel. Chain links made from steel bars can also be processed on our chain bending machines.
After the bending process, we can integrate an automatic chain link welding system into the process, so that a finished chain comes out of the system. This can then be heat-treated to achieve the desired properties.
