Small Pitch Chain

The smallest chain complying to ANSI is 25 of 6.35 mm pitch. However, in response to the demands for smaller sized chains in recent years for high technologies machinery this kind of as workplace gear, medical machines and industrial robots, we provide 15 of four.7625 mm (3/16 inch) pitch as well as 15H1 as a high-power edition of 15. These large precision chains are manufactured underneath serious high quality control particularly necessary for small sizes, taking wear resistance also under consideration.
Variety of chain
Refer for the “Low-speed selection”. Even so, the chain operation velocity could be set substantially higher determined by the type of lubrication as shown within the table below.
Connecting links and offset hyperlinks
R connecting hyperlinks are applied for tiny pitch chains. Even so, due to the fact their power is decrease than that from the base chain, and since the clip is prone to come off in large velocity operation, the use of connecting back links is just not encouraged. Use a loop chain without having attaching connecting backlinks.
Offset back links are available for chains besides 15 and 15H1, but their use is just not advised for your exact same cause as stated for the R Connecting links.
Operating velocity and kind of lubrication
15: A high precision mini-pitch bushing chain that’s smaller than a compact drive chain for common applications, 25
25: Smallest bushing chain amongst ANSI typical chains utilizing curl bushings.
35: A ANSI conventional bushing chain appropriate for modest precision machines that need large power.
