The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of six.35 mm pitch. Nonetheless, in response to the demands for smaller sized chains in recent years for high technological innovation machinery such as office equipment, medical machines and industrial robots, we present 15 of four.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch as well as 15H1 like a high-power model of 15. These higher precision chains are produced below extreme quality manage especially required for compact sizes, taking wear resistance also into account.
Collection of chain
Refer towards the “Low-speed selection”. Even so, the chain operation pace might be set substantially high depending on the kind of lubrication as proven from the table below.
Connecting back links and offset hyperlinks
R connecting backlinks are employed for tiny pitch chains. Having said that, considering the fact that their power is reduce than that from the base chain, and since the clip is likely to come off in higher speed operation, using connecting links will not be suggested. Use a loop chain without the need of attaching connecting links.
Offset hyperlinks are available for chains other than 15 and 15H1, but their use will not be suggested for that identical cause as stated for the R Connecting backlinks.
Operating speed and form of lubrication
15: A large 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 working with curl bushings.
35: A ANSI standard bushing chain appropriate for compact precision machines that need high strength.
