Machines for rope chains production
A helix-shaped chain of exceptional brilliance.
The ROPE chain owes its name to the characteristic shape of the ropes and cables present on-board ships, which consist of two intertwined spirals. This characteristic is replicated by chain making machines using a device that renders this conformation flexible and exceptionally brilliant.
Two pairs of open links, previously flattened to obtain a reflective surface, are coupled and welded together to form a single closed link. The chain is formed by chaining the pairs of links together in succession. The positioning of the pairs of links side-by-side exposes the outer edges of the links, resulting in the characteristic spiral motif. The flattening of the link also gives shine to the inner part of the spiral.
