Tsubaki provides the best solutions for steelmaking equipment--Applications in the Product Yard
The pig iron plant is where steel is extracted from iron ore. Sintered ore and coke is created here, and hot pig iron is extracted from the blast furnace.
Coil Conveyor --Coil Conveyor Chain/Bearing Roller Conveyor Chain
A coil conveyor runs between the equipment upstream and downstream of the hot rolling, pickling, and cold rolling lines, the temporary storage area for coils needing production adjustment, and between various other lines. The conveyor must convey efficiently to meet production schedules.
Coil Conveyor Chain
Coil Conveyor Chains use our unique bearing rollers to reduce running resistance. (Coefficient of friction = 0.03) The roller is also designed to be extremely resistant to cracking, and we manufacture the saddle to match your conveyor design.
Bearing Roller Conveyor Chain
A unique Tsubaki roller that features cylindrical bearings inside the roller itself. Our line-up includes dust resistant, water resistant, and lube-free series chains.
- Bearing roller functions
- Reduces chain running resistance (1/3 that of standard conveyor chain)
- Greatly increases the roller allowable load
- Bearing roller effects
- Less chain tension and required motor kW.
- Eliminates stick-slip phenomenon on long conveyors at low speed operation.
- Suppresses poor roller rotation and reduces rail friction.
- Increased wear life (between bush - roller)
Ceiling Crane --Long Span Cableveyor with Glide Shoes
Ceiling cranes can hoist, move laterally, and move backwards and forwards. They provide reliable performance in a wide range of work areas, and are often used in conveying coils in the storage yard, product shipping yard, and so on.
Long span specifications are a way of achieving longer travel lengths by having the Cableveyor glide on a guide rail. While normally this would cause wear on the tops and bottoms of the links, attaching glide shoes enables longer wear life, less energy required, and reduced running costs.
Coil Robot System
There are many automated coil storage and retrieval systems operating in the hot/cold rolled coil temporary storage yard and product management area of the shipping yard. Tsubaki Mayfran, Inc., with its proven performance in the field, works together with customers to provide the safe operation and increased productivity they need.
