Tsubaki Tray Packer Chain
Tsubaki has developed a special chain for 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 require regular re-lubrication.
The Tray Packer Chain is a development of the company’s Lambda solution, which uses a special sintered oil-impregnated bush.
Like the Tsubaki Lambda lube-free chain, the Tray Packer is impregnated with NSF-H1 food-grade lubricant as standard.
Tray packing machinery is common in the food and beverage industry and fits cardboard trays or boxes to items, often to create ‘multipacks’, before distribution. Hygiene is vital and a standard lubricated chain can cause contamination of the machine, floor and end product, possibly resulting in increased maintenance requirements, damaged products and reduced profit.
With the Tray Packer Chain, the internal lubrication cannot transmit to products, which eradicates contamination. Also, the consistent internal lubrication combats the risks of uneven wear and elongation, and does away with the need to apply expensive food-grade lubricants.
The product is slightly narrower than the standard Lambda chain, a requirement for most tray packing machines. Additionally, the machines require pushers to be fitted to the transport chain and for this Tsubaki’s designers have developed a bespoke solution in which the attachments are mounted by an engineered extended pin that allows flexible spacing so that different packing configurations can be accommodated.
The product is supplied with Tsubaki’s Match & Tag service to guarantee a minimum length tolerance between chain strands that run parallel for conveyance purposes in, for instance, packaging machinery.
