Tsubaki is set to launch its new BS/DIN Lambda chain. The new chain is said to combine all the benefits of non-lube operation, superior wear resistance and improved operating life in a new, highly convenient ‘easy-disassemble’ design that retains full chain strength in the connecting link. The design can reduce maintenance requirements while increasing productivity in virtually any chain application.
The new Lambda chain has a wide operating temperature range from –10 degrees C through to +150 degrees C without compromising lubrication performance.
A specially developed ring-coining process employed on the connecting link of new Lambda chain increases the strength of the link plate around the pin holes, ensuring that a connecting link retains the same high strength and wear resistance as the rest of the chain.
Corrosion resistance has also been improved on this latest generation using an iron oxide surface coating on the outer and inner link plates, ensuring the chain is still dry to the touch but more tolerant of liquid splashes and atmospheric moisture.
