Working From Home

Our daily Microsoft Teams meeting.

Most of the Pennine Industrial’s Sales and Engineering staff are currently working from home where possible during COVID19.

We are pleased to confirm both of our manufacturing facilities are fully operational, our material stock levels are high and all orders are being shipped out on time.

Our main priority is keeping all our staff safe while offering our customers first class service and support during these difficult times.

Prior to the introduction of PennLock, the only way to disconnect and re-connect chains was to use clumsy and cumbersome tooling which was not only time consuming but ran the risk of damaging the chain. This is why we developed Pennlock, this optional extra uses a threaded pin and a locking nut, meaning that Pennine’s PennLock can drastically reduce the time taken to join the chain, while also making the whole process much easier.

Pennlock is an industry first rapid connecting system designed to reduce the time taken to join the chain while it is on the machine. Pennlock is suitable for any type of chain fitted with Thicker Type Head Protectors and offers a consistent chain running surface. Pennlock can be purchased as a complete kit including hex nut driver, 10 pins, 10 special nuts and 5 caps, spares are also available.

Staying Safe

Pennine have carried out a comprehensive Covid-19 risk assessment and whilst we’ve been able to ensure work stations are 2m apart, we have manufactured screens to add extra protection for our staff.

We have also spent time painting 2m markers throughout the company to remind people of the importance of social distancing.

Whilst it is not business as usual all the staff at Pennine are taking as many precautions as possible to keep everyone safe and maintain production.


Stainless Steel Conveyor Chains

Bottle checking and oxidisation marks have long been a problem in the glass container manufacturing industry, therefore Pennine Industrial Equipment developed our Stainless Steel Chains. This chain takes a threefold approach to tackle these problems:
  • A lower Thermal Diffusivity, meaning the chain, once hot, will be able to hold the heat better than a standard conveyor chain, to help reduce thermal shock
  • Lower Thermal Conductivity and higher thermal resistance means that the chain will pull the heat from the glass containers at a slower rate, therefore reducing the thermal shock on the containers
  • Oxidisation resistance of the material means that the chain resists rusting, therefore, reducing the marks left on containers, especially important for cosmetic containers.
This chain has shown success with large thick-bottomed containers such as Sparkling wine or Champagne bottles and is available in both single pin and 2-pin designs.

In 2002, Pennine Introduced our patented head protectors that allowed for a longer chain life, as pin head wear was hugely reduced. Now 18 years on, Pennine have developed SwiftLink™ a revolutionary new style of head protector that not only creates an uninterrupted transfer surface but unlike competitors chains, our SwiftLink™ head protectors only sit on one pin, meaning that during chain alteration, a continuous transfer surface is left with no gaps.
