The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. Even so, in response on the demands for smaller chains lately for higher engineering machinery such as office products, health care machines and industrial robots, we present 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and also 15H1 as being a high-power version of 15. These higher precision chains are manufactured underneath severe good quality control primarily required for little sizes, taking wear resistance also into account.
Collection of chain
Refer to the “Low-speed selection”. On the other hand, the chain operation pace could be set considerably large according to the type of lubrication as shown while in the table below.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset links
R connecting back links are utilized for smaller pitch chains. Having said that, because their power is reduce than that of your base chain, and since the clip is prone to come off in higher speed operation, the use of connecting backlinks just isn’t proposed. Use a loop chain with out attaching connecting back links.
Offset back links can be found for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use is not advised for that similar reason as stated for the R Connecting links.
Working velocity and sort of lubrication
15: A large precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is smaller sized than a compact drive chain for standard applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain amongst ANSI common chains employing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI common bushing chain appropriate for tiny precision machines that require higher power.
