Conventional split bushings deform into a barrel shape when side plates are pressed on, leaving only two-point contact area. SBR (Solid Bushing & Roller) chain has extremely cylindrical inside and outside bushing walls resulting in full contact to disperse bearing pressure. Less pressure ensures excellent wear resistance.
Up to 2-3 times longer wear life over curled bushings
The curled, split bushings have a seam where tiny space allows lubricant leakage resulting in shorter wear life. SBR has no seam resulting in lower bearing pressure allowing the bushings to retain lubrication resulting in much longer wear life.
SBR is cold-forged from steel rod. Cold-forming process also works with the molecular structure (grain) of the steel running lengthwise in the bushings thereby increasing fatigue strength as well as preventing bushings from breakage, Hitachi SBR chain improves performance of transmission with minimizing elongation for long period of time.
Hitachi SBR outperforms competitors for over 20 years
Established in 2004, the company has its own state-of-the-art premises. Based at 332 Diment Road, Burton, South Australia 5110. Australian Production Line Maintenance Services (APMS) Is a 100% South Australian, Family Owned Business. The Companies (Mantra) is, "We Are a Can Do Company" with the desire to supply our Customers with quality products, giving quality Service, all at an affordable price and the drive to make all customers 100% happy.
Our company is small, but active, with a skill base and industry experience within our team that exceeds one hundred years. We have a network of quality sub-contractors that assist us in undertaking small to medium projects, within the companies control and level of expertise.
We have built solid relationships with suppliers over the 10 years that the company has traded.
Our Principal Suppliers are:
• Sumitomo Hansen Drives Australia
• Hitachi Chains Japan
• GB Power Transmission Australia
• TECO Electric Motors Australia
• Transfluid Couplings Italy
• Polychem Corporation USA
Our company is a "Power Transmission Company" offering quality finished products such as industrial gearboxes and gear motors, roller chains, sprockets, brakes, clutches, couplings, electric motors, belts, pulleys etc.
The key thing that sets our company "Apart from the Rest" is that whatever we sell, we will also service. We will remove the old equipment and install the new, In the instance that the existing plant is economically repairable, we can do on site repairs or remove the damaged or worn component and transport it back to our workshop for rework/refurbishment before returning it to site for reinstallation.
We also build complete drive systems which may include, electric motors, brakes, reduction gearboxes, gearboxes and motor bases, couplings, coupling guards and all mounting requirements. So the whole unit can be shipped to site for installation as a package.
