Tsubaki is known for the high-quality, reliable products it offers, including its lineup of roller chains, sprockets, power transmission components and cable and hose carriers. It manufactures many different types, sizes and varieties of chains to meet its customers’ needs. And to further ensure it meets each unique requirement, the leading global manufacturer has an in-house, state-of-the-art Laser-Express laser cutting machine designed to meet even the toughest made-to-order (MTO) requests.
Custom chain capabilities
With its Laser-Express laser cutting machine, located at the company’s Holyoke, Mass., manufacturing plant, Tsubaki now has increased capabilities to provide better lead times and take on increasingly complicated MTO requests.
Thanks to this machine, the company can create a variety of complex bent attachments, and achieve maximum flexibility to cut any plate and attachment contours. It can handle plate/attachments up to two feet by eight feet, and varying cutting thicknesses (Carbon Steel 35-240H, Stainless Steel 35-C2080H).
Because the team has this in-house capability, lead time is improved by up to four weeks, depending on the complexity and size of the job.
An industry leader
Its custom chain capability is another reason Tsubaki is a leading global manufacturer of chains, sprockets and power transmission utility components. The company prides itself on its intense focus on research and development, its quality products and superior service, as well as its use of cutting-edge technology, like the laser cutting machine.
