A German wine producer has improved its productivity by retrofitting an anti-corrosion chain on its conveyor system. The company invested in a Tsubaki Neptune chain that has increased service life and reduced downtime with less frequent replacement and maintenance requirements. The upgraded chain has also reduced the total cost of ownership.
Providing superior tangential force compared to large gears, Tsubaki Pin Gear Drives are a cost-effective and versatile solution for builders of heavy-duty automatic machinery. Designed to expand possible configurations of linear or rotary drive units, Tsubaki Pin Gear Drives are an ideal selection for applications in the metal, industrial, robot, machine tool, infrastructure and rail sectors.
The beverage industry operates on a global scale, with its growth driven by our desire for convenient drinks. With the needs of billions to cater for, beverage manufacturers need to utilise highly reliable equipment to meet demand and secure profitability.
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.
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.
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.
