Tsubaki high durability chain reduces costs for conveyor application

A French sawmill has reduced its overhead costs while decreasing downtime and maintenance hours by upgrading its roller chain. The sawmill conveyor's standard chain, which had a lifetime of just six months, has now been replaced by a Tsubaki Titan Chain. Designed for heavy duty applications and use in adverse conditions, the Tsubaki chain is set to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Top quality corrosion resistant chains ensure it is always sunny

A manufacturer of rotating solar panels that track the sun as it travels across the sky has switched from an underperforming drive chain to a long life, corrosion resistant chain made by Tsubaki. This has reduced the need for expensive in-field maintenance and frequent replacement, thus shortening the payback time of every installation.

Mine operator switches to Cam Clutch backstop to prevent material pile up and reduce maintenance

A global mining operator has upgraded the backstop on its incline conveyors to non-rollover cam technology to prevent material pile up on stops and stalls. Tsubaki's Cam Clutch design also incorporates rollers, contributing to longer life operation, enhanced by a labyrinth seal for significantly reduced ingress. As well as enhancing operational efficiency, the backstop will also give the operator a reduced total cost of ownership.
