Compact Pitch Chain

The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of six.35 mm pitch. However, in response for the demands for smaller sized chains lately for higher engineering machinery this kind of as workplace products, medical machines and industrial robots, we deliver 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch as well as 15H1 like a high-power version of 15. These substantial precision chains are produced below significant high-quality control especially expected for small sizes, taking put on resistance also into consideration.
Selection of chain
Refer towards the “Low-speed selection”. Nonetheless, the chain operation speed could be set considerably higher determined by the type of lubrication as proven in the table under.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset back links
R connecting hyperlinks are used for little pitch chains. Nonetheless, because their power is decrease than that of the base chain, and since the clip is prone to come off in large velocity operation, using connecting hyperlinks just isn’t recommended. Use a loop chain with out attaching connecting backlinks.
Offset backlinks can be found for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use is not recommended for the same motive as stated for that R Connecting links.
Operating velocity and variety of lubrication
15: A high precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is smaller than a compact drive chain for standard applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain amongst ANSI conventional chains employing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI common bushing chain suitable for compact precision machines that need high power.
