The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. On the other hand, in response for the demands for smaller sized chains in recent years for high engineering machinery this kind of as office tools, health-related machines and industrial robots, we deliver 15 of four.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and also 15H1 as being a high-power edition of 15. These higher precision chains are produced underneath severe high quality management especially required for tiny sizes, taking put on resistance also into consideration.
Choice of chain
Refer to your “Low-speed selection”. However, the chain operation velocity is often set considerably higher determined by the type of lubrication as shown from the table beneath.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset backlinks
R connecting links are used for modest pitch chains. On the other hand, considering the fact that their strength is decrease than that in the base chain, and because the clip is likely to come off in substantial speed operation, the usage of connecting hyperlinks will not be advised. Use a loop chain without the need of attaching connecting backlinks.
Offset backlinks can be found for chains besides 15 and 15H1, but their use is not advised to the very same explanation as stated for that R Connecting hyperlinks.
Operating velocity and variety of lubrication
15: A large precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is definitely smaller than a compact drive chain for general applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain among ANSI common chains employing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI common bushing chain appropriate for modest precision machines that need higher power.
