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.

Tsubakimoto Chain has always been at the forefront of chain innovation. The company understands the importance of responding to industry demands and is continually improving leading edge products. This is achieved by investing in new technology, research and development.

As the pioneer in the industry, Tsubaki was the first company to develop a roller chain that uses special oil impregnated bushes. Since its introduction to the market in 1988, Lambda Chain has gained an outstanding reputation in a variety of industries and applications. The product is capable of meeting a wide range of customer needs for longer wear life in lubrication-free environments. This reduces overall long-term costs to the customer.

To celebrate Tsubaki's 100th anniversary the company has launched the new and improved G8 series Lambda Chain.

This is the biggest improvement to Lambda Chain since the product was launched. With the huge undertaking to move sintered bush production in-house in 2014, the company decided to review the sintered bush material and improve part precision to further increase quality.

Tsubaki re-visited the fundamentals of its manufacturing process. After extensive research and testing, a new bush manufacturing technique was developed using new materials, density and oil types. Lambda chain now uses food grade lubricant and retains the same strength as a traditional bush. These new techniques, coupled with a specially coated pin to reduce running friction gives the end user less downtime and reduced maintenance costs. With the ANSI chain now lasting twice as long and the BS 1.3 times as long, total cost of ownership using Tsubaki G8 Lambda chain is significantly lower than using traditional chains.

Why use Lube-Free Lambda Chains?

In applications where lubrication is difficult or impossible, Lambda is the chain of choice. It is ideal for applications where lubrication cannot be used. An example of this is when chain makes direct contact with the product. In these cases any lubricant may contaminate the product being transferred and this is not acceptable. There are other instances where the operating conditions are not ideal including cement plants or sawmills. Fine dust and contamination can cause serious problems on the chain. These particles can stick to the lubricant clogging the chain and sprockets resulting in articulation problems and eventual derailment.

Where long life, reduced downtime and higher productivity are required Lambda Chain is the ultimate choice. Available in Long Life Lambda (X-Lambda), High Temperature (KF-Series) and corrosion resistant series.
