Small Pitch Chain

The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. Even so, in response towards the demands for smaller chains lately for higher engineering machinery such as workplace tools, medical machines and industrial robots, we give 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch and in addition 15H1 being a high-power version of 15. These higher precision chains are produced under significant quality manage specifically demanded for compact sizes, taking put on resistance also under consideration.
Selection of chain
Refer towards the “Low-speed selection”. However, the chain operation pace is often set substantially substantial based upon the kind of lubrication as shown while in the table below.
Connecting hyperlinks and offset hyperlinks
R connecting backlinks are applied for compact pitch chains. On the other hand, because their strength is reduce than that of the base chain, and because the clip is more likely to come off in high velocity operation, using connecting links is not really advisable. Use a loop chain without the need of attaching connecting hyperlinks.
Offset hyperlinks can be found for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use isn’t proposed for the similar purpose as stated to the R Connecting links.
Working velocity and style of lubrication
15: A high precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is definitely smaller than a compact drive chain for standard applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain among ANSI regular chains using curl bushings.
35: A ANSI normal bushing chain ideal for compact precision machines that require high strength.
