The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. Nevertheless, in response towards the demands for smaller chains in recent times for substantial engineering machinery such as office equipment, healthcare machines and industrial robots, we provide 15 of 4.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch as well as 15H1 as being a high-power model of 15. These higher precision chains are produced beneath serious top quality handle particularly essential for little sizes, taking put on resistance also into account.
Collection of chain
Refer to the “Low-speed selection”. Nevertheless, the chain operation speed could be set considerably large based on the kind of lubrication as proven while in the table under.
Connecting links and offset hyperlinks
R connecting hyperlinks are utilised for smaller pitch chains. However, since their power is reduced than that from the base chain, and since the clip is more likely to come off in substantial velocity operation, the usage of connecting links isn’t suggested. Use a loop chain with out attaching connecting links.
Offset links are available for chains aside from 15 and 15H1, but their use is not recommended for your exact same purpose as stated for the R Connecting backlinks.
Operating velocity and style of lubrication
15: A higher precision mini-pitch bushing chain that is smaller sized than a compact drive chain for common applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain among ANSI normal chains employing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI regular bushing chain suitable for small precision machines that require large power.
