Specify U.S. Tsubaki Drop Forged Rivetless Chain whenever dependable material handling is required: Power and free units, multi-lane operations, trolley conveyors and overhead handling systems.
Ultra Wear Life Drop Forged Rivetless Chain extends wear life of rivetless chain. Tests under real-life conditions have proven that UWL chain lasts 40 to 50 percent longer than ordinary rivetless chain.
This extraordinary performance has been achieved with special steels and a proprietary pin hardening process. Since pin wear is the major limiting factor with rivetless chain, U.S. Tsubaki's specially produced pins greatly increase the chain's wear life. UWL Drop Forged Rivetless Chain is available in X-348, X-458, X-678, 698 and barloop styles.
Barloop Chains consist of a standard forged rivetless inside block, fabricated steel sidebars, and cold drawn steel pins.
Barloop Chain offers the advantage of a flat sidebar for welding attachments. The pin is securely locked in the sidebars eliminating both the wear between the pin and sidebar and the possibility of the chain coming apart when slack exists.
U.S. Tsubaki offers Barloop Chain with a nut and bolt assembly that rotates. This permits easy assembly and quick replacement.
