Tsubaki introduces new BS/DIN Lambda lube free chain
03 July 2012
Tsubaki Lambda sintered oil impregnated bushes have been upgraded to the optimum composition of sintered metals. The lubricant specifications and oil impregnation methods have been reviewed and further improved. In addition, heat treatment and overall bush geometry have been improved to secure optimal performance.
The microscopic pores in the seamless sintered bush are vacuum filled with high performance lubricant. The upgraded bush design enables a 50% increase in wear-life performance.
The special hard coating on the pin surface enhances the long term internal lubrication and increases the wear resistance resulting in extended lifetime and less maintenance.
The novel centre sink pin design offers easy chain disassembly and the markers on the rivet head enable the customer to identify pin rotation which is an indication of chain overload and therefore the need for chain replacement.
The patented Ring Coin connecting link ensures that the chain can be specified up to its full chain capacity. The typical standard slip-fit connecting link is usually up to 25% weaker than the other links. Tsubaki’s Ring Coin technology has overcome that problem.
For conveyor applications, a 25% reduction in initial elongation now comes as standard. This reduces the need for post installation maintenance (less chain / sprocket adjustment) and contributes to the overall increased life time of the chain.
The elongation pattern of the New Tsubaki Lambda chain is now extremely stable. This minimises the need for intermediate chain and sprocket adjustment.
Tsubaki Lambda chain is also environmentally certified with the company's Eco Link logo.
