Tsubakimoto Chain has launched a new range of Power-Lock shaft-hub locking devices. The range covers a large number of applications, shaft sizes and peak torque values to deliver a comprehensive line-up, which is available in both stainless steel and electroless nickel-plated finish to ensure excellent performance in corrosive environments.
Tsubaki first developed these products in 1978 and has been improving the design and expanding the application range ever since. Although available in Asia for some time, these products have only recently been made available to the European market and are fully supported by the Tsubaki technical sales and service network.
Derek Mack, sales director for Tsubaki UK, said: “Tsubaki is dedicated to manufacturing power transmission solutions for its customers that will improve productivity and offer industry leading reliability. The Power-Lock range delivers excellent value and superb connection properties with it being designed to suit a wider range of shaft tolerances and its self-centreing ability.
The complete range is supported by a comprehensive catalogue, which gives full specifications of each series and a complete selection guide to help customers select exactly the right product for their application. In addition, the catalogue includes full dimensional information for each model and detailed installation and removal instructions to ensure an exact fit and reliable operation.
The Power-Lock range is available to fit shaft sizes from 5 mm up to 500 mm and able to transmit up to 555 kN of torque. The complete line up includes the versatile AS series, a high torque variant, the ADN series as well as low profile and nut locking alternatives.
