Premature chain wear

Paper Log Accumulator

The Challenge:

A paper towel log accumulating factory was looking for improved wear life on an accumulator machine. The machine was experiencing premature chain failure due to heavy shock loads.

The Solution:

Analyzing their operations, Diamond Chain determined that a key issue in the failure of their current chain was the carrier pins. Diamond carrier pins are designed so that the pins are the actual chain pins. They are through-hardened, medium carbon pins that are specially heat treated for maximum ductility and toughness and are able to handle significant shock loads without failure.

The Results:

After switching to Diamond series extended pin attachment chain, the paper towel log accumulating company was able to cut annual chain costs by $931.29.
