SFR Chain is amongst the top manufacturers of sharp top chain for the forestry, lumber and timber industry, worldwide. We produce the widest range of profiles, to save on tooling costs to our customers. We manufacture directly in our factories the timber chains that we sell, thus having control of the manufacturing process, to guarantee the highest standards for quality and reliability, as well as the most competitive prices.
Working closely with our engineers and our customers' specifications, we calculate the optimal degree of sharpness for the top teeth for each application, maximizing performance by balancing high grip with low penetration and tear out. Knowing that lumber sawmills' success lays in running at the highest speed possible, with the smallest margins of error, waste, and downtime, our chains are designed to run accurately at speeds of over 1,400 fpm.
Some of the common profiles that we manufacture both in ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and in ISO (metric, British Standard) standards, can be found on our specific catalog or in the general catalog, but if you can't find what you are looking for, get in touch with us, we will be more than happy to work together with you.
