Abstract

This relates to chain bars and other support structures for chain cutting instruments and also supports for conveyors or moving tools, for example chain bars for cutting chains. Chain bar apparatus and methods are disclosed that may be formed from plastic, metal or other materials. Laser cutting of a chain bar core can provide improved structural characteristics, for example when adhesive is used to assemble the chain bar. Flow diversion elements can be used to optimize flow throughout the chain bar.
