Our customer in the Medical Packaging Industry saved $12,000 by replacing their existing chain with the Tsubaki chain! ⛓️ Here's how we did it:

SITUATION ➡️ Our customer had a very worn gripper chain that had multiple grippers missing or broken.

PROBLEM ➡️ The customer was experiencing jams, which would slow down production significantly.

TSUBAKI SOLUTION ➡️ Tsubaki offered a solution that included no modification to current sprockets and greater gripping force than OEM chain.

- Down time reduction = $5,000 saving per year.
- No need to change specialized sprockets or guides, or purchase chain from OEM = $7,000.

= TOTAL SAVING OF $12,000!

With the growth rate accelerating in the food and beverage manufacturing industry, Tsubaki is ready to offer engineering solutions and product support to meet this demand.

We saved our customer in the beverage industry $5,000 per year by replacing their chain with the Tsubaki Lambda Chain.

Find out how we saved this high profile customer in the beverage industry $5,000 per year by offering them a solution - Tsubaki's Lube Free Lambda Chain.

Here's how we did it:

The customer chain required tensioning several times per month and lubricating the chain was very time consuming.

The OEM chain was stretching severly and required replacing every 8-12 months. This resulted in regular maintenance and downtime. This also required staff to lubricate the chain every week.

Tsubaki replaced the RS12B-1 chain with our Lambda Lube free chain. This chain has been in operation for 3 years now, with no stretching or lubrication required. An outstanding result.


- Saving of 3 sets of RS12B-1- totaling $2,500.
- Saving 3 x $1,200 maintenance downtime refitting.
- Saving on the labor of lubricating per year $2,000.
- Out of cost for new chain: $900 + $1,200 fitting.

Tsubaki, the leading manufacturer of high-quality industrial chain and power transmission components, has expanded its line-up of chain wear indicators with the addition of larger sizes.

The new BS Large Size Indicator is available in sizes RS20B to RS48B and the ANSI Large Size Indicator - covers sizes from RS100 to RS240. These complement the existing BS Set which is used with sizes RF06B to RS16B and the ANSI Set for sizes RS35 to RS80. The new large size indicators are available to purchase as individual items, rather than as part of a set.

The Tsubaki Chain Wear Indicator enables plant and machinery engineers to measure roller chain condition and determine critical wear in one simple operation. In use, one end is shaped to fit snuggly over a roller, and the tip of the other end indicates the degree of wear by highlighting the total elongation over some links. As such, they are a valuable tool for helping keep machinery in top condition and for minimising unexpected chain failures that could lead to costly production downtime.

All hard working roller chain will stretch over time, and equally, it is inevitable that the sprockets with which it engages will wear. The stretch will cause a loss of tension, reducing the transmission efficiency. This wear is likely to cause loss of alignment accuracy for the overall drive system, leading to repercussions in positioning and locating duties, reduced efficiency and an increase in noise and vibration. If wear increases to a critical point, the chain will begin riding and jumping on the sprockets which cause shock loads, which in turn will further accelerate wear.

These problems are avoided by regularly monitoring the chain for stretch and changing it before problems become manifest. Tsubaki's chain wears indicator gauges are made to high-quality specifications and are resistant to corrosion. Their robust construction ensures accurate measuring every time over a long working life.
