Tsubaki Australia, part of the Global Tsubakimoto group has developed the next generation in roller chain. Drawing on close to a century of manufacturing experience and industry first advancements in chain design, Tsubaki’s RS-G7 roller chain is in a league of its own.
With innovative engineering, Tsubaki has patented the world’s first solid lube groove bushing, this technological advancement has overcome the short falls with plain solid bushing chains.

The lube grooves allow a reservoir of oil to be held around the load area of the pin and bush assembly, reducing the wear and increase the life of the chain to twice that of Tsubaki’s out going series.

Designed around a concept to down size the chain required in a drive system, Tsubaki ensured the chains performance ratings through stringent specifications and material selections where achieved to gain a 33% kW rating increase. This means cost savings in the drive systems components and physical parameters.

This innovation in technology has allowed Tsubaki to produce patented; lube groove bushings and ring coin connecting links (Patented design), wider waist link plates, shot peened rollers, higher grade pins, orientated link assembly and a pre-loaded - lubricated chain.

In keeping with a philosophy of improving, Tsubaki looked at the environmental improvements that could be embraced, and developed a packing box, which uses environmental friendly recycled paper and eco-friendly Soy ink.
