Tsubakimoto delivers power & performance to the Paper industry

As one of the world's premier manufacturers of power transmission products, Tsubakimoto has developed a wide range of reliable products, specifically designed to meet the tough working environment of the paper and pulp industry.

From beginning to end, the paper manufacturing process involves the continuous movement of materials from the original woodchip to the finished paper roll and each process can benefit from the expertise of Tsubaki's design engineers. From drive chain and sprockets to couplings and reduction gearboxes, Tsubaki can deliver a wide range of products that will reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve productivity and profitability.

To help those involved in operating and maintaining the many processes of paper manufacture achieve their performance and efficiency goals, Tsubaki has released a comprehensive product brochure, which is available on its website.

The operating environment within a typical paper manufacturing facility is often laden with dust that can stick to drive chains and block the conventional lubrication path. This can cause increased levels of wear in the drive chains, which will need more frequent maintenance, increasing costs and possibly reducing productivity and efficiency.

Tsubaki has developed a range of products, such as Lambda chain, which is a lube-free chain with oil impregnated sintered bushes that retain lubricant, thereby negating the need for external lubrication and extends the wear-life of chain dramatically. This can be matched with a drive chain sprocket that has a deep hardened layer over the entire component that provides excellent wear resistance for a long service life.

Derek Mack, Sales Director for Tsubaki UK, concludes: "Tsubaki invests heavily in R&D and offers a wide range of products which have been designed for all types of industries and environments. This means that for most applications, even traditional hard wearing ones, we are able to specify a solution which will last many times longer than a basic chain. We will conduct a site visit prior to specification to make sure that we understand the unique requirements of every job and can offer an accurate estimate for our chain's TCO."
