The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. Having said that, in response towards the demands for smaller sized chains lately for substantial technology machinery such as office products, health care machines and industrial robots, we deliver 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and also 15H1 like a high-power model of 15. These higher precision chains are produced under significant excellent manage specially essential for modest sizes, taking put on resistance also into account.
Selection of chain
Refer towards the “Low-speed selection”. Having said that, the chain operation speed can be set significantly large dependant upon the kind of lubrication as proven within the table below.
Connecting backlinks and offset hyperlinks
R connecting hyperlinks are applied for tiny pitch chains. Nonetheless, due to the fact their power is reduce than that on the base chain, and since the clip is likely to come off in large speed operation, the use of connecting backlinks isn’t advisable. Use a loop chain with out attaching connecting hyperlinks.
Offset back links are available for chains aside from 15 and 15H1, but their use just isn’t encouraged to the same cause as stated for the R Connecting back links.
Working speed and sort of lubrication
15: A large precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is smaller sized than a compact drive chain for general applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain amongst ANSI normal chains applying curl bushings.
35: A ANSI conventional bushing chain appropriate for small precision machines that require higher strength.
