Jervis B. Webb Company Introduces Major Improvement to Its Conveyor Chain

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH (March 10, 2014) – Jervis B. Webb Company and Daifuku America Corporation—subsidiaries of Daifuku Webb Holding Company—introduced LubriPin™, a new pin that will extend the life of conveyor chain.

“We are constantly improving our products, even our oldest one, chain conveyor, which we developed for Henry Ford more than 90 years ago,” said Brian Stewart, President & CEO of Daifuku Webb Holding Company.  “LubriPin is one of the most significant advancements to conveyor chains in the last decade.”

LubriPin facilitates improved lubrication, which significantly increases the longevity of conveyor chain.  Lubrication also reduces chain stretch and noise generated by the conveyor system.  LubriPin includes features enabling the oil to flow quickly down the pin in order to reach critical lubrication points.
