The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. Even so, in response to your demands for smaller chains lately for higher technologies machinery such as office gear, medical machines and industrial robots, we offer 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and in addition 15H1 as a high-power version of 15. These large precision chains are manufactured below severe excellent manage primarily expected for tiny sizes, taking wear resistance also into consideration.
Choice of chain
Refer towards the “Low-speed selection”. Even so, the chain operation velocity could be set significantly high depending on the sort of lubrication as proven in the table beneath.
Connecting links and offset backlinks
R connecting links are employed for modest pitch chains. Nonetheless, given that their strength is reduced than that on the base chain, and because the clip is more likely to come off in substantial velocity operation, using connecting links just isn’t advised. Use a loop chain without the need of attaching connecting back links.
Offset links can be found for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use will not be recommended to the similar reason as stated for your R Connecting links.
Working pace and style of lubrication
15: A large precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is definitely smaller than a compact drive chain for common applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain amongst ANSI standard chains employing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI regular bushing chain appropriate for modest precision machines that demand large strength.
