The efficiency and reliability of a chain driven system highly depends on the interaction between the chain and sprocket. Just the smallest discrepancy in size can lead to stress damage to the chain, while low quality materials can cause the sprocket to wear and require early replacement. The Tsubaki range of sprockets has been manufactured from high quality steels to integrate seamlessly with all standard chain sizes and ensure a long and reliable service life.


All of the carbon steel sprockets supplied by Tsubaki as standard from stock feature induction hardened teeth to ensure that the wear life of both the sprocket and chain is maximised.

Thanks to significant investment in research and development (R&D), Tsubaki is able to offer the highest levels of engineering in all of its products.Throughout the process of steel manufacture, Tsubaki is able to deliver power transmission products which can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve productivity and profitability. Tsubaki uses the newest manufacturing techniques and best materials to ensure that its products are able to survive for considerably longer than standard products on the market.


The maintenance department at Horwich Castings foundry in Bolton, one of the largest and most advanced green sand casting plants in the UK, was used to roller chain lasting a maximum of six months on a conveyor removing hot boxes from the central mould machine. In an attempt to extend chain life in this arduous environment, standard roller was replaced in July 2001 with Lambda Lube free roller chain from Tsubaki. The chain is still running two years later, there has been a considerable cost saving made on replacement chains, plant reliability is now 100% and the level of maintenance work required has been greatly reduced.
