Sharp Chain From Bandmill to Unloading
The most expensive and sophisticated scanning and optimizing equipment is useless if you cannot hold the log steady through the manufacturing process. There is no more stable and efficient platform for scanning and processing timber than an ASM Sharp Chan System. Accurate lumber is valuable lumber, pure and simple.
ASM has invested over a million dollars in precision CNC manufacturing equipment so that we can produce the most accurate and consistent sharp chain possible. While others may try to reduce costs by outsourcing their machining work, we know the only way to get the job done right is to do it yourself.
ASM manufactures sharp chain systems for new installations and also retrofit installations. Our retrofit kits are available to fit almost every brand of sharp chain system. By retro fitting your old sharp chain system with an ASM system you can increase recovery, reduce maintenance and down time, and take advantage of ASM’s extensive replacement parts inventory. ASM can ship most replacement chain on the save day it is ordered.
ASM is known world wide for our high quality durable and accurate sharp chain. ASM Sharp chain is precision made, economical to operate and backed up by a rock solid warranty and service program.
Sharp Chain Track
The sharp chain rides on a wear resistant bar. This wear bar is machined and keyed on the bottom to mate with the supporting track. A center guide bar mounts into a central grove, which is machined in the top of the wear bar. Once the final installation and alignment is complete, the wear bar and the center guide bar can be replaced easily without realigning the entire support track.
ASM wear bars and guide bars are manufactured in 12-foot long sections. Longer sections minimize connecting joints to provide a smoother, stronger guide system. Longer replaceable sections also help to simplify installation.
Sharp Chain Sprockets
ASM’s upgraded large-scale CNC machining capabilities allow us to manufacture our precision machined sharp chain sprockets. Machining the sprocket as a complete unit produces a smoother running, better mating, chain and sprocket system.
Chain Guide Anvils
Every ASM sharp chain system comes complete with one pair of Side Guide Anvils. These Side Guide Anvils provide extra lateral support in the chipping and sawing area. ASM Anvils are fully adjustable and do not require the use of shims.
Precision Sharp Chain
The ASM high pressure chain lube system meters out the precise amount of
lubricating oil needed to ensure maximum chain life without wasting oil. Approximately one gallon of lube oil per hour is applied at critical points on the Sharp Chain System. The lube system is activated* on timed intervals, which are synchronized to the chain running speed and operating time. The lube system applies oil only when chain is actually moving, thus conserving lube oil and eliminating unnecessary clean up.
* Lube oil pump- is activated by the customers PLC system.
