KÖBO is a respected partner of well-known automotive manufacturers and their suppliers. Our comprehensive advice and customized solutions impress the world over. This is what allows our KÖBO experts to develop and manufacture our high-performance handling and apron conveyor chains that are precisely tailored to the various requirements of the automotive industry. Even under varying environmental conditions, e.g. during rain tests, KÖBO solutions perform flawlessly and remain extremely durable.
KÖBO chains can be low-maintenance or no-maintenance across a wide range of applications, e.g.:
The simplicity of the CC5 design has led to decades of success. For many years, our CC5 chains have been used by our partners Ford and GM in Europe and the USA. Not only that, KÖBO has optimized the standard CC5 design to become a lubrication-free system. This represents an enormous cost saving with respect to service life. With our modular system, you can adjust the sequence of the guide roller from CC5A without rollers, to CC5B with a roller in every inner link in a matter of seconds. For details regarding the designs, materials and customized wear optimization, please contact us.

One of the first stages in vehicle production is the forming of flat sheet metal into complex components such as engine bonnets, doors or side pieces. When they are finished, they have to be moved quickly and safely to the place they are required for assembly. Meanwhile, surplus material is separated off and transported away from the production line. For effective scrap metal disposal, KÖBO supplies chains, sprockets and complete assemblies with attachments. We are your partner for reliable conveyor technology in the automotive industry.
Sprockets / sealed joints
KÖBO specializes in applications for drop-forged rivetless chains, such as x-678, x-458, etc. Free movement of the joints and the resulting high resistance to wear makes us one of Europe’s top quality suppliers. In order to permanently fulfil the high expectations placed on our chains and components, we use high-quality materials. We also perform heat treatment appropriate for the application prior to final assembly. This allows us to minimize wear right from the start.
KÖBO is the partner you can rely on for apron conveyors in the automotive industry and we are also capable of managing the transport process in the final assembly, as evidenced by the many international projects we have already implemented for notable manufacturers and brands in the passenger vehicle, HGV and mobility sectors.
KÖBO apron conveyors can be found in the following sectors of the automobile industry:
As a one-stop shop we supply chain systems including chains, transport cells, shafts and sprockets. And as a one-stop shop, we are also able to supply complete units. In this sector we predominantly use no-maintenance or low-maintenance chains in order to keep lubrication and maintenance to a minimum.
