Drive element: News for efficient power transmission

conveyor chainSuccess Story

A British one Automobile- Manufacturer had a problem servicing the conveyor chainsthat drives his lanyards. This is used to transport the assembling carBodySilo equipment. The Roller Chain had to be replaced too often, otherwise it would have caused production to stop. By converting to a special conveyor chain from Tsubaki the problem could be solved. Only they had to TCO instead of the purchase price.

Tsubaki presents a wide selection of drive and conveyor chains that have a longer service life than comparable drive elements. The standard roller chain "GT4 Winner" is manufactured to BS / DIN standard and has a high strength and easy handling. The low-maintenance "Lambda" chain in the sixth generation based on the GT4 Winner does not need to be re-lubricated.

Norelem has now added numerous versions to its range, which can be used thanks to the high-performance materials used in various industrial areas.

cover story

The drive chain is often perceived in the industry as a machine element as a means to an end, while more attention is given to the more complex components surrounding it. And so designers often use cost-effective standard solutions and do not even question a customer-specific development. It offers Tsubaki quite worthwhile alternatives for special requirements.

Tsubaki1218Regular inspections of the chain drives in plants can avoid unexpected failures by timely replacement of the roller chains installed in them. Tsubaki has extended its range of chain wear gauges by large sizes for the maintenance of such chain drives. The new chain wear gauges were designed for BS sizes RS20B to RS48B and ANSI sizes RS100 to RS240.
