Tsubaki Cam Clutch / Freewheel chips in for potato harvester reliability

If you like chips, chances are that you owe your dinner to a potato harvester. Self-propelled or towed behind tractors to automatically harvest potatoes from the soil, these machines are an important tool for ensuring the world's food security. Global demand for potatoes grows with the expanding population, which means potato harvester OEMs need to deliver more reliable and efficient machines to maximise the yield of the potato crop.

Tsubaki solutions ready for the abrasive and harsh environment of the cement industry

Essential for the construction industry, cement has been in high demand since the time of the Ancient Greeks and the Romans. With current demand following the upward trend of modern development, it is imperative that cement producers enhance the reliability of their equipment. For decades, Tsubaki has provided robust conveying and power transmission solutions designed to deliver a long service life in abrasive, heavy duty cement applications.

Sweet success for Tsubaki Neptune™ chain installed on ice cream plant palletisers

Ice cream is a food that inspires universal joy like no other. People worldwide will always need ice cream to complete the perfect day out or take the edge off a hard week. However, one factor that does affect ice cream demand is the season. Obviously, more ice cream is sold during summer than winter, which means ice cream producers have to increase production to capitalise. These duty demands can cause the premature failure of power transmission components such as chains, especially when production is taking place in sub-zero temperatures.

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, engineers at the plant contacted Tsubaki to supply a more reliable option.

Tsubaki is a GT4 Winner at Austrian pulp and paper plant

From the chipper to the roll, producing paper is a continuous process. For plant managers tasked with managing capital expenditure, sometimes budget components can find their way onto the production line. Drive chain is a classic example of a product that is sometimes treated as a commodity rather than an engineered component. One global manufacturer of pulp and paper products discovered that low cost chains on the line don't necessarily lead to cost savings once installed. Consequently, it turned to Tsubaki to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) via a premium chain solution.

Automotive manufacturers double conveyor chain service life with Tsubaki

The automotive production line is a high-pressure environment, where downtime costs thousands of euros a minute. Despite the sky-high costs of poor reliability, many manufacturers are still specifying the chain that drives their conveyors as a commodity product - basing buying decisions on price rather than performance. In many cases such a strategy is a false economy as the correctly specified chain may last many times longer than the budget option and also improve the efficiency of the production line.
