U.S. Tsubaki’s industrial group is currently comprised of four business units: the Roller Chain Division; Engineering Chain Division; Power Transmission Components Division (which includes Sprockets); and KabelSchlepp Cable & Hose Carrier Division.
The Roller Chain Division provides some of the most versatile products on the market. Tsubaki innovations have yielded popular problem solvers such as self-lube Lambda® series chain, corrosion-resistant Neptune® chain, fatigue-resistant Super Chains, and rugged Energy Series™ oilfield chains and attachment chains.
The Engineering Chain Division offers heavy-duty chains designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of a vast array of industries and prolong wear life under rigorous operating conditions. These products use various grades of steel, heat-treated to precise specifications and assembled with accurate press-fits to withstand the requirements of today’s powerful, high-production equipment.
Tsubaki Sprockets are built from top-grade, heat-treated carbon steel to offer long wear life, resist abrasion, and withstand heavy shock loads. Precision manu-facturing at our ISO-certified* facilities ensures that every U.S. Tsubaki sprocket stands up to critical design specifications and meets the highest quality standards.
Tsubaki’s Power Transmission Components lineincludes all Tsubakimoto products other than chain and sprockets. A partial list includes belts, cam clutches, actu-ators, dampers, overload protection and reducers.
The KabelSchlepp Division produces world-class cable and hose carriers in a wide range of sizes and types for a variety of environments. From our light-weight micro-sized mono cable carriers to our enormous super-duty steel chain designs, Tsubaki KabelSchlepp has the perfect solution for any application. Wherever shorter production times, faster installation, higher machine cycles, longer service life and better overall value are desired, Tsubaki KabelSchlepp can help.
