Timber Industry

Donghua has sold Timber Chain in the UK since 2009 and we have expanded our stock-holding to meet customer demand. Donghua’s Timber Chain is assembled in the UK in our attachment chain workshop located in the West Midlands. Our Timber Chain is designed for use in dusty, harsh conditions and dynamic loads.

Our Timber Industry Chain is supplied in a variety of materials and finishes:

Preloading of Chain – to help reduce fatigue and extend the wear life of chain, Donghua’s Timber Chain comes pre-loaded as standard. Chain with little or no pre-load applied will suffer significant elongation during initial use and will need to be changed sooner which means increased down-time. 

Matching of Chain – we match our Timber Attachment Chain to within very close tolerances to ensure the attachment links engage with the sprockets together thereby eliminating undue stress which is a major cause of fatigue failures on attachments.

Hot Dip Lubrication – our Timber Attachment Chain is hot-dipped and we are the only UK manufacturer to have our own hot-dip facilities. Hot dipping allows penetration into areas standard lube spraying does not reach. As the lubricant cools, deposits remain inside the chain providing ultimate lubrication.

Chrome surface coating – adding a chrome surface coating extends the wear life of chain.

Specific chain for the Timber industry includes:

Sharp Top Chain: our Sharp Top Chain, commonly known as saw tooth chain, is available with next day delivery throughout the UK mainland.

CP Chain: Chromized Pin (CP) Chain offers increased wear life five times that of standard Roller Chain. It is designed with a chromized pin and a split bush. Adding a chrome surface coating results in super hard pins which extend the wear life of the chain.

X3 Chain: a high performance Roller Chain that lasts three times longer than similar competitor chain.

All Donghua products are manufactured in state-of-the-art facilities with precision tooling, delivering tolerances to within 0.5DIN accuracy. Our UK headquarters boasts a 25,000 square foot warehouse, a technical workshop and a testing laboratory.
