After four years in operation, an auto components manufacturer started having issues with their 500oF oven that heat treats crankshafts. No application information was available at that time due to employee turnover.
Tsubaki surveyed the application when the competitor’s engineered class chain was newly installed. Six strands of chains were measured, drawings were created and documented in Tsubaki Advantage along with their proactive replacement date. Four years later, a Tsubaki representative visited the customer site after receiving a reminder from the database that the application required replacement. The customer was ecstatic to know that Tsubaki had all the necessary information to replace the chain in their application and prevent downtime.
