Product Details Supplier Info More products

Tsubaki Europe has launched a brochure outlining recommended installation, care and maintenance for its chain products, aimed at OEM designers, maintenance subcontractors, engineers and end users.

The guide provides a comprehensive reference point to maximise the lifetime of Tsubaki’s chain, which features solid rollers, lube-groove bushes, easy disassembly and the patented ring-coined connecting link.

Designed to support the three catalogues that have previously been launched by Tsubaki Europe, the brochure includes an installation guide for each chain type as well as basic maintenance, inspection and problem-solving techniques.

The reasoning behind this guide’s development is that maintenance and installation engineers are often expected to be master of all trades in contemporary lean operating conditions.

It makes no assumptions about product knowledge but provides the detail and technical insight needed to effectively order, install and care for a critical power-transmission component such as chain.

The brochure is split into three key product sections: Roller Chain, Attachment Chain and Conveyor Chain, a corrosion resistance guide and appendix.

Each product section has a number of chapters including ordering, installation, lubrication and inspection.

The guide also includes information unique to particular types of chain, for example, chain length tolerance, cutting specific types of chain and tension adjustment.

There is also an introduction to Tsubaki Europe’s Match and Tag facility, a high-accuracy service enabling supply of chains in exact matched sets for conveying systems.

Information has been provided for chains that will be located in harsh environments and that may need extra care or attention, as well as advice for increasing the chain’s operating life.

There is also a corrosion resistance guide that advises on the levels of resistance that different chain materials have to a variety of potentially corrosive substances.

Roller chain troubleshooting and problem solving is one of the most difficult areas for engineers to evaluate and resolve when faced with potential line stoppages and production downtime, so a simple guide that highlights the common causes of chain failure and the potential remedy has been included.
