Drive chains, sprockets, belts, conveyor chains, shafts, toothed wheels, toothed racks, toothed belts transfer movements, forces and torques from the drive into the machine. With these products of the Drive Technology it depends on the service life, strength, load capacity, etc. Because if they fail, the machine comes to a standstill. The drive elements are therefore maintenance-intensive and often have a decisive influence on the TCO costs (Total Cost of Ownership). We have many great success stories in which replacing a drive element increases machine running times many times over.

Drive elements for mechanical engineering and plant construction

When it comes to a lack of service life, excessive wear and tear and unreliability of drive chains, it is advisable to think outside the box and ask an alternative supplier. In the present case, a Dutch steel mill was able to increase the productivity of its heat treatment in the long term. How? Because Tsubkaki has replaced his failure-prone lifting chains with high-tech chains with a service life of up to 15 years.

He replaced the chain with a premium chain from the leading manufacturer of drive technology products, Tsubaki. This not only solved the quality problems, but also tripled the service life of the system.

This is done through appropriate protective measures such as bellows. For special applications, Steinbock is now presenting a bellows with Velcro or zip.
