The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of six.35 mm pitch. Having said that, in response on the demands for smaller chains lately for higher technologies machinery this kind of as workplace equipment, health care machines and industrial robots, we present 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and also 15H1 being a high-power model of 15. These large precision chains are produced under serious good quality control specially required for modest sizes, taking dress in resistance also into account.
Variety of chain
Refer to your “Low-speed selection”. On the other hand, the chain operation speed can be set significantly high according to the kind of lubrication as shown from the table under.
Connecting links and offset hyperlinks
R connecting hyperlinks are utilised for small pitch chains. On the other hand, because their power is lower than that in the base chain, and because the clip is more likely to come off in large speed operation, the use of connecting links is not suggested. Use a loop chain without the need of attaching connecting back links.
Offset back links can be found for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use will not be recommended for the exact same reason as stated to the R Connecting links.
Working pace and kind of lubrication
15: A high precision mini-pitch bushing chain which is smaller than a compact drive chain for general applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain amongst ANSI common chains utilizing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI regular bushing chain suitable for smaller precision machines that need large power.
