Helping OEMs reduce costs

Paul Boughton

Tsubakimoto Europe is helping mining equipment OEMs respond to mining company demands for increased reliability and improved after-sales service, highlighting the capability, affordability and availability throughout Europe of its chain and power transmission products for mining applications.

With mining companies around the globe relying on OEMs for strategic parts and equipment, a recent survey identified the pressures that OEMs are under to meet the service levels expected of them while also remaining cost competitive.

Tsubakimoto Europe is helping OEMs to address these requirements on two fronts with its extensive range of chain products. First is to provide products that deliver inherent reliability, helping OEMs deliver mining equipment that reduces downtime and increases productivity. High quality materials and precision manufacture minimise wear and ensure long life, even in the most demanding mining applications. Further, Tsubakimoto Europe works closely with OEMs to ensure that they are able to develop competitive products.

Second is to assure prompt and reliable availability of spare parts through a global network of production locations, sales outlets and alliance partners. This network means assured and prompt product distribution, meeting the needs of both OEMs and their end users. Being a leading global manufacturer of chain, one way clutches and linear actuators, Tsubaki can deliver full back-up and rapid response to customers’ local needs, wherever they are.

The Tsubaki Group includes 46 production locations and 63 sales offices and many more alliance partners worldwide. Together they can deliver across a wide platform of applications designed for use in underground mines, surface mines, preparation plants, power stations and port facility applications. The company works closely with mining equipment OEMs to develop many different sizes of mining chains to meet the industry’s most demanding requirements.
