Chains have diverse applications in the wood industry due to their high durability under the harshest of conditions. As an example, wooden planks (timber) are transported with the help of special toothed plates on roller and bush chains. All manner of conveyor chains can also be used to handle wooden products.

The use of special attachments on chains, e.g clamps, bent/straight lug link plates, blades, etc. can be adapted to the respective conveyor task. Special materials are often used here.
