Chains and Flights

NEPEAN Longwall supplies chain and flights from FASING – an established international market leader with numerous installations in Australian Longwall mines and now the largest manufacturer of mining chains. In recent times NEPEAN Longwall has delivered FASING chain and flight assemblies to Oaky North Mine, Carborough Downs and the South32 Illawarra group of mines. The FASING group has factories located in Katowice in Poland with state-of-the-art facilities utilising robotic manufacturing to control key process and improve efficiencies and quality. All components are fully traceable throughout each process from raw materials through to final packaging a delivery. Contained within the facility are a number of chain manufacturing machines capable of manufacturing chains from 7 mm to 65 mm. Adherence to all international standards are possible including relevant DIN standards for flat and round link together with the FASING patented Master Profile (broadband style) mining chains and the Solid Profile Chains (broadband equivalent).

Chains are usually supplied pre-fitted with FASING’s flight bars although both chain and flight bars are available separately and NEPEAN Longwall is able to overhaul your chains at our workshops in QLD and NSW.

NEPEAN Longwall work closely with FASING’s Engineering department on major Australian projects and the result of this closer cooperation is better communication of engineering data to match the customers’ requirements to the chain and flight design and specification parameters.

Fasings range of Longwall AFC chain and Flights and BSL chain and flights, as well as their chain connectors, is available to suit almost every longwall in Australia.
