The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. However, in response towards the demands for smaller sized chains in recent times for high technology machinery this kind of as office gear, healthcare machines and industrial robots, we offer 15 of four.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and also 15H1 as a high-power version of 15. These high precision chains are produced beneath significant top quality handle specially demanded for small sizes, taking wear resistance also under consideration.
Choice of chain
Refer on the “Low-speed selection”. Even so, the chain operation speed is usually set substantially higher based upon the sort of lubrication as shown within the table under.
Connecting links and offset backlinks
R connecting backlinks are used for little pitch chains. Even so, since their strength is lower than that on the base chain, and because the clip is prone to come off in substantial speed operation, using connecting hyperlinks is not really advised. Use a loop chain without attaching connecting hyperlinks.
Offset hyperlinks are available for chains aside from 15 and 15H1, but their use is not really suggested for your exact same cause as stated for the R Connecting back links.
Operating pace and type of lubrication
15: A higher precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is certainly smaller sized than a compact drive chain for basic applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain among ANSI standard chains using curl bushings.
35: A ANSI standard bushing chain suitable for compact precision machines that require high strength.
