In the realm of mechanical engineering, the fusion of chains and sprockets transcends mere technicality, representing a meticulously orchestrated synergy. This intricate interplay is pivotal across diverse mechanical systems.
In mechanical equipment, it is common to require two or more chains to operate synchronously, necessitating identical lengths for proper functioning. In order to meet customer requirements, Maxtop is able to provide length matching and tagging services to ensure alignment with customer usage needs.
Most chains use metal links for higher strength, but they can be heavy and require frequent lubrication and maintenance. However, for lighter loads and applications that are not lubricated or easily corrode, chains with a combination of engineering plastics and stainless steel can be considered.
The stainless steel roller chain and double-pitch conveyor roller chain are made from SUS304 material for superior corrosion resistance. Stainless steel chain used in the food industry and processing industries. MCC provides ANSI, ISO standard stainless steel chain, includes double-pitch, straight link plate chain.
The MEGA-II stainless steel chain is MCC patented stainless steel roller chains with the larger bearing area, increased tensile strength and increase 50% chain life.
What is Leaf Chain? Leaf chain only consists of link plates and pins which is the simplest steel chains. It’s commonly used on forklift trucks, telehandlers and in other material handling applications. As the link plate found on the standard roller chain, the link plate of leaf chain also has the same figure of 8 shape. Leaf chain is also called balance chain and cable chain.
