The automotive production line is a high-pressure environment, where downtime costs thousands of pounds a minute. Despite the sky-high costs of poor reliability, many manufacturers are still specifying the chain that drives their conveyors as a commodity product – basing buying decisions on price rather than performance. In many cases such a strategy is a false economy as the correctly specified chain may last many times longer than the budget option and also improve the efficiency of the production line.
