Chain Wear Monitor


Chains are a part of nearly every industrial process. Regardless of it’s function, failure of any component that makes up a chain can be detrimental to the plant’s production.

Digilube understands the importance of preserving your chain and keeping it in optimal working condition, that is why we provide Digilube’s Chain Wear Monitor (CWM). Our Chain Wear Monitor uses state-of-the-art machine vision artificial intelligence technology to monitor both pin wear related stretch, as well as overall chain well-being.

The CWM is installed directly on the rail to non-intrusively measure the wear of the chain between individual links for overhead and inverted chain conveyors
