Conveyor chains for hygienic packaging applications

24 August 2014

Tsubaki offers direct replacements for BS or ANSI specification chain for a wide range of applications, including packaging machinery for products ranging from aerosols to pharmaceuticals, food and beverage.

Tsubaki Gripper Chain uses an advanced spring design which creates a wider opening and improves the plastic film feed

In facilities using thermoforming machinery, which includes both food and medical product manufacturers, Tsubaki's Gripper Chain is used to feed the film over the semi-packed product before it is sealed.

Tsubaki Gripper Chain uses an advanced spring design with increased fatigue resistance as well as a side-swivel gripper design which creates a wider opening and improves the plastic film feed. Combined with the company's Match & Tag service*, this advanced chain can provide perfect chain alignment and synchronised film feed with industry-leading reliability.

A more recent development from Tsubaki has seen the introduction of a food grade lubricant for its NP series of Gripper chain. The new lubricant has been proven to provide the same wear resistance properties as the rust preventative agent used previously. This improvement has been introduced as a direct response to feedback received from existing customers, demonstrating Tsubaki’s market focused product innovation.

*Match & Tag Service
When chains are running in parallel for conveyance purposes, for example on packaging machinery, it is essential that the two chains are exactly the same length to ensure ideal performance. However, uneven wear of OEM chain can result in both chains requiring maintenance or replacement.

Tsubaki offers the Match & Tag Service, which guarantees a maximum chain length difference of just 0.50mm - independent of the overall chain length. This level of service is made possible by the use of sophisticated chain length measurement equipment, which allows a wide range of chains to be matched, including BS Single Pitch, ANSI Single Pitch and ANSI Double Pitch.
