Ramsey: new RKO tool saves time connecting and disconnecting chains

Ramsey engineers have come up with a solution for the problem of time lost to connecting and disconnecting conveying chains: the RKO tool

Connecting and disconnecting conveying chains can be tedious and time consuming. This is especially true with wear protected chains like Ramsey Allguard FX and Lifeguard, where pin heads are recessed below chain link surfaces. Ramsey engineers have come up with a solution for this problem, the Ramsey RKO tool.
The RKO tool, or “Ramsey Knock Out” tool, is designed to quickly and easily remove pins wherever a chain must be disconnected. The same tool can be used to simply install chain connecting pins wherever chain sections are to be joined. The RKO tool, patent pending, also maintains chain link and spacer alignment during chain connection. According to one Ramsey engineer, “ The RKO tool can save hours when connecting the chains on a typical IS machine or cross conveyor.”
RKO knockout tools are equipped with modular guide plates that allow the tool to be adapted to almost any Ramsey Allguard FX or Lifeguard chain. Just specify which type of chain you are using and the RKO tool will be delivered already setup to fit your exact chain. Alternatively, you can order the modular guide plates individually, and configure the tool for any chains that you wish.
