Chains: reducing long-term cost with the best choices for harsh environments

Exposure to challenging environmental conditions is when the ultimate performance and durability of an industrial chain is really tested. From corrosive atmospheres to washdown environments, a chain correctly specified for its application will increase lifespan, reduce burden of maintenance and minimise downtime. In such applications it often possible to reduce total cost of ownership by […]

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 […]

Tsubaki offers a full range of sprockets

Tsubakimoto, the world’s premier manufacturer of power transmission products, offers a full range of sprockets, all available from stock, for the European market.  The impressive line-up includes products manufactured from carbon steel (with induction hardened teeth) and stainless steel and features a huge range of standard products. Customers with specific requirements for their applications are […]

Tsubaki conveyor chain leads to long term cost savings and efficiency for commercial bakery

Producing high quality, consistent baked goods in a batch production requires precise and reliable processes and equipment. For one bakery, the industrial oven it used for producing pre-baked bread rolls required new conveyor chain every two years due to excessive wear. This was an expensive and time-consuming operation that affected the bakery’s production targets. Fortunately, […]

iwis presents the new CLA lubrication system for chain drives

For long chain service life – economical, clean, absolutely precise: iwis presents the new CLA lubrication system for chain drives. Regular maintenance and lubrication are essential to ensure low wear and extend the service life of a chain drive. More than two thirds of all chain failures can be avoided with proper relubrication. Which was […]

Too hot to handle?

A leading German automotive components manufacturer produces a range of vehicle parts, including wheel carriers, controls arms and pump housings for use by many global automotive brands, using mainly steel and aluminium blanks. Once installed in the vehicle, many of these parts will be subjected to harsh conditions, and they have to endure extreme wear […]

Tsubaki doubles conveyor drive chain lives at automotive manufacturing

The pressure and stress at automotive industry manufacturing lines is high; a second of downtime can cost millions of euros. In spite of low reliability’s astronomical costs, many manufacturers still determine their conveyor driving chains as commodity goods; they weigh on price rather than performance. In many situations, this is false; since a correctly selected […]

New Focus: Stainless Inverted Tooth Chains

“Admittedly, the designation ‘stainless inverted tooth chains’ may be confusing – because the advantage of our stainless steel inverted tooth chains is not in the resistance of the metal but in the thermal conductivity properties of stainless steel” emphasizes Uwe Gillert, glass industry manager for inverted tooth chain manufacturer RENOLD. Renold Tooth Chain introduced the […]

Covering both small and large pitch sizes, Renold has tailored its technology to suit your requirements with a range of different solutions all brought under the Renold Syno name. In a range incorporating technology unique to Renold and with designs […]

Renold helps electronics distributor save over £70K per annum

A leading global distributor of electronic, electrical and industrial components handles and ships over 55,000 parcels every day from its UK-based distribution centre. To facilitate this feat of logistics, each part of the distribution chain needs to work flawlessly. In the warehouse, products are transported from stock locations to packing bays using lifts that are […]

Chains are used frequently in industrial manufacturing environments. Chain systems, which serve efficient solutions in fundamental requirements such as lifting, transporting and drive, find many application spheres in industrial manufacturing. According to usage spheres, chain types can be aggregated in these three topics:

1.Load lifting chains
2.Transfer chains
3.Drive chains

The main criterion in chain choice is the load to be subjected; eg., they should carry an appropriate power transmission potential for the application they will be used.
Load lifting chains, as expressed in the name, are used to carry something from somewhere. Here, the chain shall be used for lifting the material that will be used and, for this reason, pulling force is the main subject at this point. Round steel link chains as the general preference for these tasks, are used often at lifting machines.

Transfer chains, again as expressed in the name, is the general definition for the chain types benefited for transferring materials to elsewhere. For these applications, chains that have rotating skills and round steel link formation are used.

Drive chain is the name given to the chain type which commission to transmit energy emerging at power center to the desired environment. Drive chains are used in many different spheres such as tool centers, food & beverages industry and gearboxes.Despite transfer and drive chains are discrete theoretically, they can be used for the same purposes.

Chain maintenance and proper work

Chains are generally sold as non-packed. These chains’ pitch tips have to be connected, in order to be prepared for usage and this requires expertise.Another critical subject in chains is the tension. For sustainable functioning of chains in compatibility with the gears, without disruption and power loss, they have to be assembled with a pre-tension.

Chains have to be lubricated periodically for preventing subjection to friction caused effects.
It can be told that, compared with belts, chains have quite higher power transmission capability. However, there is a point to be remembered; chain costs are quite much higher than belts.

There are many companies, expert in chain manufacturing and post-sales services in Turkey and in the world.
