Tsubaki has developed a special chain for the tray packing machinery widely used in the food and beverage industry. It is internally lubricated so that it is clean in use and does not need regular re-lubrication.


Con el objetivo de reforzar su posición en el mercado regional, Tsubakimoto Europe B.V. (con sede en Dordrecht, Países Bajos), filial propiedad de Tsubakimoto Chain Co. (con sede en Osaka, Japón), acaba de establecer una filial en Madrid, España. Tsubaki Ibérica Power Transmission S.L.U. será plenamente operativa el día 1 de febrero de 2017.

Tsubaki Europe has announced a new supply partnership with Poland's largest manufacturer of agricultural machinery, Unia Group. The new partnership will see Tsubaki chains installed as standard on a number of models within Unia's baler range.


The expertise of chain drive specialists at Tsubaki UK is being called upon to help manage winter water levels, particularly in low lying parts of the country. The aim is to control river flows and reduce the instances of flooding which is becoming increasingly important as climate change is leading to warmer, wetter weather.


Tsubakimoto Europe BV has been recommended for the certification of ISO 9001:2015. With this certification Tsubakimoto Europe BV complies with the newest international standard for quality management.


Maximising productivity and reducing costs means ensuring that equipment is correctly specified for the task and properly maintained while in service. For one manufacturer of glass fibre insulation, a conveyor system that passed through an oven was suffering from premature chain wear which was affecting product quality. Having approached Tsubaki for a longer lasting alternative, the chain manufacturer delivered a premium chain that would last three times longer and greatly reduce production downtime.


The proposed roller attachment chain, manufactured by Tsubaki, was equipped with some special features including hardened chromium-plated pins, Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) lubrication that would provide high lubricity even beyond the temperatures experienced inside the oven.

Against a backdrop of growing integration of the full production chain, the EMBALLAGE and MANUTENTION exhibitions will assert their complementarity in 2016 by becoming "ALL4PACK Paris, the global marketplace for Packaging, Processing, Printing and Handling". Tsubakimoto Europe at stand: 6 N 087 will show their latest innovations for the packaging industry.


Tsubaki cadena de rodillos RS nueva generación Lambda


La compañía Tsubakimoto Chain lleva proporcionando desde 1917 las cadenas industriales de la major calidad. Como líder mundial en lo que a innovación se refiere, en 1988 Tsubaki se convirtió en el primer fabricante del mundo en presentar la cadena autolubricada bajo la marca Lambda.

La cadena Lambda es ideal para aquellos lugares donde resulta difícil, imposible o desaconsejable realizar la lubricación de las cadenas. Se suele utilizar en sectores donde es necesario contar con un entorno limpio (por ejemplo, sectores de la alimentación y el embalaje), así como en lugares donde existe una elevada contaminación abrasiva (por ejemplo, en el procesamiento de la madera o la industria del papel).

Drive chain maker Tsubakimoto is to set up its second plant in Europe. Located in the Czech Republic, Tsubaki Automotive Czech Republic s.r.o., will manufacture and assemble timing chain drive systems and associated products for leading car manufacturers across Europe.

Building works are already in hand at a site in the Central Bohemian town of Kolin about 55km (35 miles) east of the capital city Prague.

Tsubakimoto planned the construction project to proceed in stages, the first being a 5000sqm building which will be completed by November 2017 and house 40 personnel. The whole site should be fully operational by 2020, when it will have a total built area of over 40,000 sqm and employ 80 people in manufacturing, commercial and engineering roles. Total project investment is expected to be 400 million CZK (about 14.3 million Euro).

TSU259-Tsubaki-Automotive-Czech-Republic.jpg"Building on our success in the United Kingdom; we are very excited about this new development," says Bart Mellink, Managing Director Tsubakimoto UK Ltd. The new company will be recruiting 20 key staff in the summer of 2016. To achieve production continuity, they will all undergo training at the UK production site early next year.

The HANNOVER MESSE fair in Germany covers all the core themes of the industrial value-adding chain at a single location - from individual components to the complete smart factory.

Ofcourse Tsubakimoto is present again this year with new innovations. You are more than welcome to visit our stand in the Motion, Drive & Automation Halls.
