Guides & Tensioners

Daido Corporation announced a strategic alliance with Murtfeldt GmbH to market Murtfeldt Guide and Tensioner products in North America. Murtfeldt GmbH of Dortmund, Germany is the leading manufacturer in Europe of a broad range of standard chain and belt guides, slide profiles and custom plastic parts as well as fully automatic chain tensioners patented worldwide.

The Murtfeldt Chain & Belt Guides and Chain & Belt Tensioners all feature the patented Material “S”, a premium UHMW-PE material offering high abrasion resistance, a low coefficient of friction without the need for lubrication. All of the Murtfeldt Guide and Tensioning products greatly improve chain and belt drive life through the elimination of slack and vibration as well as reducing noise levels.


Chains and belts are pivotal wearing parts in many plants and machines. Because they are constantly in motion, they are subject to especially high stresses and strains. Belts require pre-tensioning and chain links stretch, causing increasingly turbulent movement.

Murtfeldt tensioning systems reliably keep chains and belts at the correct tension and thus increase their lifetime.


Where there is friction, there is wear. This is especially the case for applications where metallic materials are used. For example, for chains that run on metal guides, regular lubrication is absolutely vital.

The aim is to achieve quiet, smooth running and long-term functional reliability. Murtfeldt chain guides protect your chains. They guarantee optimum running properties at the same time as extremely high wear resistance. The tried-and-tested Original Materials "S" and "S"1000 are economical options with ideal material properties that make them well-suited for use as guides for roller and round link chains.
