Hitachi Chain
The Hitachi range of Neo-SBR roller chains imported exclusively into Australia by GB Power Transmission are the ultimate in premium quality roller chains. Manufactured in Japan, the standard range offers features and benefits not available in some of the other leading brands available in Australia.

1) SBR- Solid Bushing and Solid Roller provide total contact between pin bushing and roller increasing Wear Resistance and reducing elongation, significantly improving chain service life.

2) Neo special double surface treatment of the pin and bush provides corrosion resistance and a further increase in wear resistance.

3) New improved connection link design with Wide Waste Plate improves stress distribution and fatigue resistance.

When it's got to be quality specify Hitachi for the maximum service life in you chain applications.



Solid Bushings, Rollers and New Connecting Link Increases Fatigue Strength by 20%.

Special Double Surface Treatment on Pin & Bushing for Corrosion and Wear Resistance (Neo SBR).

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better... IT DOES!

Solid bushings and rollers realized the ideal of ensuring total contact among pins, bushings and rollers.

Connecting link now features an improved precision process, straight sidebar which increases fatigue strength by 20% and allows for easy location of connecting link during maintenance.

HITACHI Neo SBR® roller chain features a special double surface corrosion resistant treatment which has been applied to the pin and bushing and improves wear resistance.

HITACHI SBR® is stocked in chain sizes 35 - 240 and 06B-32B.

Corrosion Resistant Roller Chain

"Optimum Performance and Service Life in highly corrosive applications"

Hitachi CR - Corrosion Resistant series Roller chain is a highly cost effective alternative to both stainless steel and nickel-plated roller chains traditionally used in medium to high corrosive applications. The coating is applied using a mechanical plating system, that does not flake or peel, and will not contaminate valuable processing lines. All parts of the roller chain are individually coated prior to chain assembly ensuring total protection for all roller chain parts. Other coatings applied to already assembled chain just don't penetrate to the parts that need the protection most and also wear from the moving parts of the chain further exposing them to corrosion early in their service life.
  • Ideal replacement for Stainless, cost effective and 8 to 9 times stronger in Maximum Working Load.
  • Available from Stock in Standard AS & BS Roller Chain, other chains available ex factory.
  • Chain comes standard with Hitachi SBR solid bushing system for increased resistance to elongation.
  • Coating also offers Heat Resistance and Self Lubricating properties far in advance to other products.
