Tsubaki's Lambda Chains were the first in the industry to use a special oil-impregnated bush. Since their launch in 1988, they have been adopted for diverse industries and applications, and their performance has been highly rated. Tsubaki has a wide line-up of lube-free, long life products that help customers reduce costs.

As a pioneer in the lube-free chain market, Tsubaki will reveal some of the key elements behind Lambda's outstanding performance:
The 6th generation of Tsubaki Lambda Lube Free chain is supplied as standard with NSF-H1 food grade lubricant impregnated bush. This makes Tsubaki Lambda Chain series perfectly suitable for applications in the food industry. Bushes impregnated with H3 certified lubricating oil are available on request.
BS Lambda chain can be disassembled quick and safely with an original Tsubaki Chain Tool without damaging the bushes (RS08B-LM-1 to RS16B-LM-1).
Patented Ring Coining Process
Breakage of the chains connecting link is no issue at Tsubaki thanks to this unique feature. By applying the patented Ring Coining process, Tsubaki generates a cold deformation around the pin hole of the connecting link plate. This results in residual stress around the pin hole and thereby adds strength. By using this process transmission capacity is 100% of the base chain.
Tsubaki Lambda has outstanding performance in temperatures up to 150°C. For temperatures above 150°C Tsubaki has a special high-temperature Lambda available. Please contact Tsubaki for more detailed information.
When an application needs water wash downs or is exposed to moisture, and lubrication is not possible or desirable, Lambda Neptune™ is most efficient.
Tsubaki has enhanced the Lambda with the following advantages:
