Tsubaki of Canada remains the country’s most respected manufacturer of quality chains and related products. Another big part of the company’s portfolio is power transmission utility components, also known as PTU components. These units – one-touch doors, power locks, and shock relays – fulfill the growing market demand from businesses for higher efficiency and reliability from industrial machinery and optimized power transmission, while saving money and increasing productivity.
Premium products outperforming the competition
These three types of PTU components all carry the Tsubaki Advantage: they are reliable, premium products that always outperform the competition. Tsubaki’s one-touch doors are dust- and rain-tight inspection and service doors for many kinds of processing and handling equipment, especially conveyor systems. Right after the user installs it, each door allows for fast, easy inspection without requiring any special tools. All the user needs to do is to lift a lever, without loosening any bolts or removing any easily misplaced covers. A major advantage of these prefabricated products is that they are not clumsy or hard to open, unlike more expensive, labour-intensive in-house fabrications. These are strong, sturdy components that save a lot of time and money by needing only one simple movement.
A power lock is a keyless locking device that provides a superior alternative for connecting components to shafts, due to their high clamping strength. Power locks can mount any rotational component, and they are recommended for connecting timing pulleys, sheaves, conveyor pulleys, indexing applications, sprockets, gears, cams, levels, motors and hydraulics, clutches and brakes, and flange couplings. Among the benefits of these Tsubaki power transmission components: simple attachment of shafts to hubs without extra assembly effort; solid connections; elimination of gaps between hubs and shafts; and easy installation.
Shock relays, the third kind of power transmission utility components, prevent damage to chains, drives, gears, turbines, and entire mechanical assemblies from unexpected shock loads. Shock relays and external current transformers shut down lines instantly and securely when they detect issues. When the problem is solved, the relay can be reset by pressing a button, and no tear-down is required.
