Tsubaki's Lambda® Chains were the first in the industry to use special oil-impregnated bushes. Since their launch in 1988, they have been adopted for diverse industries and applications, and their performance has been highly rated. Tsubaki has a wide line-up of lube-free, long life products that help customers reduce total costs.

Painting the inner and outer plates black has added more corrosion resistance and given the chain a high-grade finish. To ensure compatibility with RS Roller Chain, the inner plate is one size thicker with the same tensile strength and maximum allowable load as RS Roller Chain. Thus, pins are longer than with the RS Roller Chain, so interference with equipment should be checked.
Specially shaped pins are used on single-strand 08B to 16B sizes to enable easy chain disassembly using a standard chain breaker.
The plates and rollers of this Lambda Chain are surface-treated to increase corrosion resistance.
- NP Specifications: Plates and rollers have a special nickel plating for low level corrosion resistance
- NEP Specifications: Plates and rollers undergo NEP treatment to increase corrosion resistance
The definitive lube-free roller chain.
More than 5 times the wear resistance of Lambda Chain through the use of oil-impregnated felt seals.
(Based on in-house comparisons at a temperature range of -10°C to +60°C (+14°F to +140°F))
Note: Special sprockets required.
This sideflexing roller chain offers large bending capabilities thanks to the uniquely constructed pins and bushes and large clearance between the link plates.
The ability to use RS standard sprockets makes curved transmission simple.
Due to the special NSF-H1 certified lubrication impregnated bushes, Lambda Chain® KF Series is usable in a wide temperature range (from room temperature to 230°C), and for food product applications while at the same time being kind to the environment.
