Reducing long-term cost with the best chain choices for harsh environments
Exposure to challenging environmental conditions is when the ultimate performance and durability of an industrial chain is really tested. From corrosive atmospheres to washdown environments, a chain correctly specified for its application will increase lifespan, reduce burden of maintenance and (more...)
Durability is key for today’s roller chains
Since the industrial revolution, roller chain design has remained relatively stable. However, the most crucial developments have responded to the need to increase chain durability and lifespan. Not only has this improved safety, but these advances have driven down total cost while improving (more...)
New Tsubaki Chain Configurator lets users build the perfect chain
Anyone working with industrial chain can now design their optimum attachment chain with the new online Tsubaki Chain Configurator. Featuring a wide range of design options and the ability to export formatted 2D and 3D CAD models - the new configurator is an indispensable resource for those looking (more...)
Tsubaki Titan Chain offers significant improvements in wear life for ultra demanding applications
Tsubaki’s latest innovation, Tsubaki Titan Chain, is designed to offer previously unobtainable wear life in harsh applications, like in abrasive and dusty conditions, such as those found in timber mills, stone sawyers or brickworks. Created by the company’s global research and (more...)
Chain installed on ice cream palletisers is sweet success
An ice cream plant in Germany realised that an increase in production was causing chains on its pallet lifters to fail prematurely, resulting in operational delays. To maximise chain service life, it contacted Tsubaki to supply a more reliable option. Ice cream is a food that inspires universal (more...)
Spin riveting boosts conveyor chain performance
Alec Annand, manager of Renold Chain’s customer service centre, recommends that all engineers specifying custom designed conveyor chain, with attachments, should consider the benefits of spin riveting as an option, due to the extra side plate security it provides. Although most conveyor (more...)
Perfect timing
In the industrial world, timing belts are growing in popularity due to improved efficiency and reduced maintenance when compared with traditional friction belts. However, different applications have different demands, and it is crucial to consider power transmission requirements, and the environment (more...)
Lube-free chain for food production
Food grade lubricants are highly expensive and often wasteful, so here Derek Mack of Tsubaki UK discusses a possible alternative. Legislation surrounding the manufacture or processing of foodstuffs is rightfully strict. Manufacturers should have processes in place to prevent the incorporation of (more...)
Chain drives make steel looper tower accumulator ultra reliable
A steel mill in the Netherlands has improved the long term operational productivity of its annealing line by replacing lifting chains that failed frequently with ones that have proven to have a working life of 10-15 years or longer. As part of a steel mill’s role of coating sheet steel, a (more...)
When increased profit is a chain reaction
The performance of existing plant and machinery can sometimes be markedly improved by the simplest of modifications, such as retrofitting a better quality transmission chain. Greg Sharp of Tsubaki UK expands on the concept and looks at some real-world examples where productivity and profitability (more...)
