Introducing Tsubaki products playing active roles in each tire manufacturing process.

Tire Manufacture
Mixing (Smelting) Process

A release agent is applied to prevent adhesion between sheets when manufacturing rubber sheets by mixing raw materials (natural rubber, synthetic rubber, carbon black, and sulfur).

Tsubaki's Corrosion Resistant Drive Chains and Conveyor Chains are playing active roles in environments where water and chemicals are present. In addition, power-saving electric cylinders are used on component feeders, and high-power and compact helical gear reducers are used on extruders.

Rubber sheets coated with a release agent are dried on large size conveyor chains with bars.

Advanced models with improved wear resistance and allowable load have been newly added.

Tsubaki offers a wide-range of conveyor chains to meet customer needs for longer life in harsh environments where water, chemicals, and abrasive substances are present.

  • Longer life
Applications
  • AT Series, DTA Series, ATA Series, etc.: Improved roller wear resistance
  • RT Series, YT Series, etc.: Rust prevention

Conveyor Drive/Guide -- Corrosion Resistant Drive Chains

Conveyor Drive

Drives and guides for conveyors

Conveyors are driven by corrosion resistant drive chains, as water or release agents are easily scattered when the sheets are conveyed.

Tsubaki offers various types of drive chains for applications in corrosive atmospheres with water and chemicals.

  • Longer life
Applications: Stainless Steel Roller Chain
  • AS Series: Recommended for longer life in atmospheres where the chain is exposed to release agents.
Applications: Surface Treated Roller Chain
  • NEP Series: Recommended for longer life in atmospheres where the chain is exposed to water.

Component Feeder -- Power Cylinder

Component Feeder

Conveyor Drive/Guide

Rubber components are fed to the mixers and the extruders by conveyors and trolleys.

Power Cylinders are electric linear actuators with good power savings.

Power Cylinders, which do not consume power during stand-by, have higher power savings compared to hydraulic types that use pumps, and pneumatic types that drive compressors full time. Just simple electric wiring enables their use in various applications. They are used in traversing conveyors and trolleys, as well as in opening/closing hopper bottom covers.

  • Energy saving
  • Equipment simplification

Rubber Sheet Extruder -- Helical Power Drive

Rubber Sheet Extruder

Rubber Sheet Extruder

Rubber components are fed to the mixers and the extruders by conveyors and trolleys.

Helical Power Drives are high-powered compact gear reducers with precision helical gears.

They enable narrower roll drives for rolling rubber sheets to the preferred thickness with overwhelming power. Helical Power Drives are also available in a variety of specifications to meet customer needs.

  • High-powered
  • Compact
Specification examples
  • Right-angle shaft/Parallel shaft
  • With motor/without motor
  • Hollow output shaft, solid, etc.
