Roller chains can offer a range of benefits for power transmission applications. They include excellent synchronization, transmission efficiency, layout flexibility, and excess load on roller bushing. With our innovative G7 roller chains, Tsubaki of Canada Ltd. is the ideal chain source. The Tsubaki G7 roller chain features advanced technology that combines the reliability of a solid bushing with our one-of-a-kind patented lube grooves on the inner surface that extend chain life by 30 per cent. Another key feature is the chain’s exclusive patented ring-coined connecting links that has a fatigue strength equal to that of the chain itself — that means no loss in strength. These features result in performance that is unmatched by other industrial chains. The G7 is our flagship chain and our company drew on nearly a century of experience to design it.
G7 roller chains
All G7 roller chains offer the benefits of Tsubaki workmanship such as optimal material selection, manufacturing technology, and heat treatments. For instance, they are made with precision riveting that provides resistance to side load impacts. They also have wide waist link plates for added tensile strength and maximum allowable load. As a result, customers can trust our products for their most critical applications. We are also the only supplier with the capability to manufacture both roller chain and sprockets.
Benefits of roller chain transmission
Roller chain offers many benefits when compared to gears and belts. A few of the advantages include:
- Roller chain can accommodate large speed reduction or increase, usually up to a ratio of 7 : 1.
- Both sides of roller chain can be used for power transmission working on multiple shafts or drives.
- Chains are easy to cut and connect, so installation and replacement is easy.
Roller chains are generally an economical option for low speed and large load power transmission equipment. However, when the right method of operation and lubrication is used, chains are also suitable for high speed applications like bull-edger in a sawmill. For instance, the long-lasting solid rollers in G7 roller chains provide durability and longer fatigue life at high speeds.
