Tsubaki Europe, which manufactures chains for automotive conveyors, baking solutions and book binding, for example, has launched the Custom Chain Made to Order catalogue.

The made-to-order (MTO) service includes special drive chains, attachment chains, large-size conveyors and chains made to specific customer requests.

This latest catalogue is the third in the series, following on from the Drive and Attachment chain catalogues.

Tsubaki’s service is not just targeted at OEM customers; it is also intended for developing more advanced replacement chain products for any application or solution, be it high functionality, improving performance or related to total cost of ownership for MRO requirements.

Examples of Tsubaki’s MTO chain service can be found in a variety of industry sectors, from conveyors in the automotive industry, heat-resistant solutions for bakery ovens, stitching and finishing chains for book binding and attachments to hold newspapers and food cans.

The brochure highlights Tsubaki’s functional line-up for specific applications such as lube-free, food-safe areas, high and low temperatures, high corrosion resistance, outdoor exposure and dusty environments.

Other products, such as bearing rollers and the free-flow series, provide solutions for indexing and accumulation conveying.

Catalogue support includes information on Tsubaki’s overall chain length matching capability both from Europe and direct from the manufacturing division in Japan, a product corrosion-resistance guide and technical support sheets that can be used on site, such as the application check sheet and the spacing attachment guide found on pages 82 and 83 of the catalogue.

In addition to developing new solutions to engineering challenges, the MTO service also acts as an extension to the local service provided.

With such a range of attachments on stock and capable of being manufactured locally, Tsubaki UK can often offer a lead time as little as a few days from order, depending on the type of attachment chain and volume needed.

The three main catalogues and many of the specific product-related leaflets are available for download from the Tsubaki Europe website.

Tsubaki will be supporting the three major catalogues with an installation and maintenance catalogue, details of which will be available in due course.
