WT1515-W/WT1516-W

1. Features

Tsubaki now offers a new open type.
In addition to our closed type, we've added a new open type WT1516-W to our Plastic Modular Chain Series. Myriad holes on the surface of the chain eliminate any excess lubrication as well as water/oil that remain on the surface. Open type Plastic Modular Chain will not suffer a drop in strength.
Includes 50mm and 100mm chain widths.
With WT1515-W type, users can select a chain width in 50mm units (standard configurations). Now easier to replace flat belt conveyors because chains are available in the same 50mm and 100mm widths these conveyors use.
No dead plate (straight layout)
Enables straight layouts with no dead plates. Less space and fewer motors are required compared to when using curved belts, and there is no need to adjust the transfer (height) upstream and downstream of the conveyor.

Notice: Integration of ULF Series with ALF Series

  • We will be integrating ULF Series Plastic Top Chain with ALF Series on orders from April 2017.
  • We will be integrating ALF Series with ULF Series Plastic Modular Chain and Plastic Block Chain on orders from June 2017.
  • Contact a Tsubaki representative for more information regarding ULF Series after integration.
  • ALF Series (ultra-low friction and wear resistant series) dramatically reduces the amount of wear debris generated from sliding with running rails (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) under non-lubricated conditions while maintaining the same ultra low coefficient of friction coefficient as the conventional ULF Series.
