Bevedolphin WT2515-W/WT2515G-W type for linear conveyance

New wide type WT2515-W and WT2515G-W Plastic Modular Chains have been added. Ideal for beverage container conveyance.

Easy maintenance

The chain consists of a combination of pitch 25.4mm and 85mm and 170mm wide modular links. Thanks to its plug that prevents pin drop out, the chain is easy to maintain (cut/join).

WT2515G-W type with tab guide attachments have also been added.

TTUPM-H Type Bevedolphin for curved conveyance

Special double layer D-type plastic pin

TTUPM-H Series uses the world’s first special double layer D-type plastic pin combining both plastic and metal.

It possesses all the features of plastic while preventing floating through magnetism.

You can expect longer chain life in contact with water

However, special double layer D-type plastic pins use special engineering plastic where they slide against the links to further minimize wear elongation in contact with water and prolong the life of the chain.

Test Conditions

  • Special double layer D-type plastic pins (Tsubaki product: TTUPM838H type)
  • All-metal pins (Competitor equivalent)
  • Chain speed: 60m/min
  • Ambient temperature, 5kg weight load
  • Contact with water (water drip)

The graph on the left shows our in-house test results.

Dramatically reduces pin weight

Realizes much lighter pins thanks to the special double layer D-type plastic pin.

Special double layer D-type plastic pins are 15% lighter than all-metal pins. The attraction of the chain to the magnet-embedded plastic rail in curved sections has been optimized to reduce motor load as well.

WT2515G-M Type Bevedolphin for straight sections

WT2515G-M Type uses special stepped plastic connecting pins.

Locking plugs that prevent pins from coming out have a risk of foreign matter entering when plugs drop out. In contrast, there is no risk with special stepped plastic pins which combine plugs and pins.

The simple structure of only links and pins also makes handling easy.

Possible to install on the same shaft.

Straight-running WT2515G-M and side-flexing TTUPM838H types can be installed on the same shaft, and it allows for simple conveyor design for multi-lane applications as they can convey items on the same level.
