Chains and Sprockets

0

Engineered and standard chains, sprockets, and ancillary products such as outboard rollers, scrapers, and carrier pans used in conjunction with chains from the manufacturer Köbo are distributed exclusively by leading supplier Bearings International (BI).
Target industries are bulk materials handling, steel, pulp and paper, wood, automotive, escalators, food and beverage, and water treatment. “With international supply to global OEMs, as well as industry-specific support companies, BI is well-positioned to support the local market with Köbo’s high-quality, reasonably-priced product range,” Product Manager Gavin Kirsten comments.
Köbo ’s focus on replacement chains and sprockets for the OEM sector in particular means that end users are assured of fit-for-purpose, cost-effective replacement options. As the sole manufacturer and distributor of its product range, Köbo is able to keep tight control over the end quality and consistency. This is due to the fact that its extensive chain-design knowledge is backed-up by 120 years’ in-house manufacturing experience.
A particular growth opportunity locally is the cement industry, specifically in terms of hot-pan conveyor chain, anti-bend back chain, apron feeders, reclaimer chain, and bucket elevator chain. “With the high-quality requirements of the cement industry, particularly in Europe and the Americas, Köbo has been a leading supplier to major OEMs for many years,” Gavin highlights.
BI offers full local aftermarket and technical support, in conjunction with assistance from the Köbo engineering and design team in Germany. Customised chain-maintenance is also offered as a value-added service for specific customer requirements.
