Friction drive conveyor CFC FrixLine

For independent loads with friction

Technical data sheet

The CFC FrixLine is an innovative friction drive conveyor system.

Specialized in the development of overhead and floor-mounted chain conveyors, FIVES Conveying offers a new type of equipment based on a friction-drive system: CFC FrixLine.

The CFC FrixLine is taking into account the industrial and environmental expectations of the future.

To reduce the number of friction drives, multiple load bars can be catched all together like a train requiring just a single drive for the full assembly.

Operating principle:

The CFC FrixLine converts the traction output of the conveyor’s motors into thrust force to move carriers throughout the assembly line.


CFC FrixLine's main modules:


  • CFC range depending of the specifications (3”- 4”-  6”) floor and overhead
  • Compatibility and adaptability on the existing Power & Free chain conveyors and mixed technologies.
CFC Frixline: drive unit
  • Development of a modular solution
  • Compact space and easy  to fit into layout
  • The load drive is simplified by using a compact and easily-installed geared motor with traction wheel and an opposite reaction wheel
  • Adjustable to the carried load and length
  • The standard forged conveyor trolleys are recognized for their durability and reliability
  • Isolated or inter-linked model to convey a train of loads
  • Articulated control rods ensuring a continuous drive system


  • High reliability
  • Handling of isolated or inter-linked loads
  • Compatibility and adaptability on the existing Power & Free chain
  • Fully flexible handling system
  • Wide range of speed
  •  Energy efficient
  • Savings up to 90% on equipment maintenance
  • Cleaner technology (avoiding oil and grease)
  • Significant reduction in noise levels
  • Reduction in the environmental impact
