Tsubaki has developed a special chain for the tray packing machinery widely used in the food and beverage industry. It is internally lubricated so that it is clean in use and does not need regular re-lubrication.

Tsubaki Tray Packer Chain is a development of the company's Lambda solution, which uses a special sintered oil-impregnated bush. Like the latest generation of Tsubaki Lambda Lube Free chain, the Tray Packer is impregnated with NSF-H1 food grade lubricant as standard.

Tray packing machinery is common in the food and beverage industry and fits cardboard trays or boxes to items, often to create 'multi-packs', before distribution. Naturally, hygiene is paramount and standard lubricated chain can cause contamination of the machine, floor and end product, possibly resulting in increased maintenance requirements, damaged products and reduced profit. Furthermore, the lubricated chain itself gets contaminated by dust, glue and paper particles, preventing lubrication to reach the critical areas.

To prevent such problems lubrication can be minimised or completely shut off. But this can cause chain stiffness and uneven elongation of the chain strands, which may lead to production errors and early replacement of the chain. With Tsubaki Tray Packer Chain, the internal lubrication cannot transmit to products, which eradicates contamination. Also, the consistent internal lubrication combats the risks of uneven wear and elongation and does away with the need to apply expensive food grade lubricants.

Significantly Tsubaki Tray Packer Chain is slightly narrower than standard Lambda chain, a requirement for most tray packing machines. Further, the machines require pushers to be fitted to the transport chain and for this Tsubaki's designers have developed a bespoke solution in which the attachments are mounted by an engineered extended pin that allows flexible spacing so that different packing configurations can be accommodated.

Additionally, Tray Packer Chain is supplied with Tsubaki's Match & Tag Service to guarantee a minimum length tolerance between chain strands that run parallel for conveyance purposes in for instance packaging machinery. Multiple case studies prove that even in the most demanding 24/7 production processes Tsubaki Tray Packer Chain shows an absolute minimum in elongation making its performance unsurpassed and offering unrivalled benefits year by year.

In response to the ever changing and evolving advancements in the industry, Tsubaki is pleased to announce the launch of the NEW G8 Heavy Duty Drive Chain series. The third product release in the new and improved 100th Anniversary series.

In the development of the latest G8 products, developers extensively reviewed all the past specifications in making the new Super, RS-HT and Super-H Chain.

The goal with the Super-H Chain was finding a way to improve the fatigue strength without changing the chains basic dimensions. Developers reviewed how each component was formed. One critical area was adding Tsubaki's original patented ring coining to the inner plates. Creating plastic deformation around the link plate holes, while maintaining the precision of the plate holes, in turn, influencing the chains performance. In changing the formation methods, Tsubaki has introduced new manufacturing equipment that provides a product with much better performance and reliability.

The pursuit of higher performance has helped Tsubaki create stronger, longer lasting chain. The New G8 Heavy Duty Drive Chain Series has a higher maximum allowable load and higher minimum tensile strength than standard RS Roller Chain.

The main features of the new Heavy Duty products include -

Super Chain - 5-10% higher maximum allowable load

Super H-Chain - 20% higher maximum allowable load and ring coining to give higher fatigue strength

RS-HT Chain - 2 x the wear life and its available with slip-fit connecting links

The product series is suited to a range of applications including agricultural machinery, excavators and loaders, drill rigs, mobile port cranes and mining equipment just to name a few.

Where higher maximum allowable load, higher minimum tensile strength, reduced downtime and greater productivity are required Heavy Duty Drive Chain is the ultimate choice.
