The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of six.35 mm pitch. However, in response towards the demands for smaller sized chains in recent years for higher technology machinery such as workplace gear, health care machines and industrial robots, we provide 15 of four.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and also 15H1 being a high-power edition of 15. These high precision chains are manufactured below serious good quality management particularly needed for tiny sizes, taking put on resistance also under consideration.
Variety of chain
Refer for the “Low-speed selection”. Nonetheless, the chain operation speed may be set significantly substantial dependant upon the type of lubrication as shown in the table below.
Connecting links and offset back links
R connecting back links are used for tiny pitch chains. Having said that, considering the fact that their strength is lower than that of the base chain, and because the clip is prone to come off in substantial pace operation, the usage of connecting links is not really advised. Use a loop chain with out attaching connecting links.
Offset hyperlinks are available for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use is not proposed for that identical cause as stated for that R Connecting hyperlinks.
Working pace and style 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 between ANSI normal chains utilizing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI typical bushing chain appropriate for modest precision machines that demand large power.
