Sintered Materials Mean a Longer Service Life
12 October 2012
Amongst the products showcased on the iwis drive systems stand at Drives & Controls will be an improved generation of low maintenance chains of the Everlast Plus series. It is reported that thanks to advanced sintered metals the new black coated roller chains have a significantly extended service life.
In laboratory tests the chains with the new oil-soaked sintered bushes and a slightly modified bolt specification showed an improvement in wear lifespan of more than 300%. To visually distinguish the new Everlast Plus chains from their predecessors, all components are coated black.
The Everlast Plus product programme fulfils all requirements of ISO 606, DIN 8187 and DIN 8188. The only change in the chain’s geometrical design is the slightly protruding track bushing, which reduces friction between inner and outer guide plates. Stand E7
