Tsubaki Fit & Forget Chain
for wood industry

Automated sawmills require reliable machinery to continue operating in difficult conditions, even when lubrication systems seem to be at odds with the constant accumulation of sawdust and woodchips. However, many of the major European sawmill businesses found a solution in the form of Tsubaki's Lambda chain that has significantly cut maintenance costs and improved productivity.

The operating conditions in any sawmill are tough for moving machinery due to the large amounts of airborne dust from the cutting and shaping processes. Most sawmills employ a variety of conveyor systems to transfer timber between each processing station and these rely on chains to do most of the heavy lifting. Tsubaki's Standard Drive Chain Series, GT4 Winner and ANSI G8 are designed to operate and perform in such harsh conditions.
