Supplier: Chain & Drives

Hitachi SBR Prime Series Chain now in stock. Hitachi Prime Series chain has 30% Higher MAL load ratings than its competitors


As the exclusive importer of the Hitachi range of premium quality roller chain & Drives is very pleased to announce the arrival of the New SBR-Prime series Roller Chain.  

Hitachi’s previous range of roller chain, the SBR and Neo-SBR has outperformed competitors for the last 20 years and now one of the markets most respected brands just got 30% better.  

In 1987, Hitachi introduced the first premium line of solid bushing/solid roller (SBR) industrial chain products. Cold forged solid steel parts replaced traditional curled components to increase the strength and extend chain life.  

In 1997 Hitachi added a unique Neo coating to pins and bushings and redesigned the connecting link.  A market leading product was made better as Hitachi’s design focus shifted to increasing the chain wear life and improving the endurance of the connecting link.  

The new coating assisted lubrication and protected against corrosion providing and additional 5%-10% increase in wear life.

In 2009 Hitachi went into full production of the new SBR-Prime series roller chain across the standard range.
Hitachi once again were the front runner and introduced new innovations in manufacturing technologies and parts processing which has lead to the development of the New SBR-Primes series roller chains.

Most of the competitors were still using a split bush roller chain or converting to a form of the SBR.  

Some even made improvement to the chain which actually reduced maximum allowable loads due to modification of the bushing.  
The new Hitachi SBR Prime chain now offers up to 30% increase in Maximum Allocable Load (M.A.L) compared with its leading competitors.
