Installing the Lambda chain also increased the effectiveness of the dust blower system that was designed to remove the debris from the conveyor system.
Derek Mack, sales director for Tsubaki UK, comments: "The extra life that Lambda chain offers for high wear applications such as bookbinding allows us to deliver real savings over the life of the chain and we have many references from the field to prove it.
Lambda chains are oil impregnated and offer a longer L10 life compared with conventional chains.
