INSTALLATION AND USING

The chain  spoket, as a drive or deflection for chains, has pockets to hold the chain links with a D-profile cross section with flat side surfaces  parallel to the centre plane of the chain links, and outer surfaces at right angles to the chain link centre plane. The chain links are pressed firmly against the outer surfaces and each of the side surfaces by the angled laying surfaces at the base of the pockets, and also the support surfaces of the wheel body together with the end sides of the webs formed by the leading and trailing walls of the pocket.

NOTICE

When fitting new chainwheels it is very important that a new chain is fitted at the same time, and vice versa. Using an old chain with new sprockets, or a new chain with old sprockets will cause rapid wear.

It is important if you are installing the chainwheels yourself to have the factory service manual specific to your model. Our chainwheels are made to be a direct replacement for your OEM chainwheels and as such, the installation should be performed according to your models service manual.

During use a chain will stretch (i.e. the pins will wear causing extension of the chain). Using a chain which has been stretched more than the above maximum allowance causes the chain to ride up the teeth of the sprocket. This causes damage to the tips of the chainwheels teeth, as the force transmitted by the chain is transmitted entirely through the top of the tooth, rather than the whole tooth. This results in severe wearing of the chainwheel.
 

FOR CHAIN STHangZhouRDS

Standards organizations (such as ANSI and ISO) maintain standards for design, dimensions, and interchangeability of transmission chains. For example, the following Table shows data from ANSI standard B29.1-2011 (Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets) developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). See the references[8][9][10] for additional information.

For mnemonic purposes, below is another presentation of key dimensions from the same standard, expressed in fractions of an inch (which was part of the thinking behind the choice of preferred numbers in the ANSI standard):

Pitch (inches) Pitch expressed
in eighths

chain number
Width (inches)
14 28 25 18
38 38 35 316
12 48 41 14
12 48 40 516
58 58 50 38
34 68 60 12
1 88 80 58

Notes:
1. The pitch is the distance between roller centers. The width is the distance between the link plates (i.e. slightly more than the roller width to allow for clearance).
2. The right-hand digit of the standard denotes 0 = normal chain, 1 = lightweight chain, 5 = rollerless bushing chain.
3. The left-hand digit denotes the number of eighths of an inch that make up the pitch.
4. An “H” following the standard number denotes heavyweight chain. A hyphenated number following the standard number denotes double-strand (2), triple-strand (3), and so on. Thus 60H-3 denotes number 60 heavyweight triple-strand chain.
 A typical bicycle chain (for derailleur gears) uses narrow 1⁄2-inch-pitch chain. The width of the chain is variable, and does not affect the load capacity. The more sprockets at the rear wheel (historically 3-6, nowadays 7-12 sprockets), the narrower the chain. Chains are sold according to the number of speeds they are designed to work with, for example, “10 speed chain”. Hub gear or single speed bicycles use 1/2″ x 1/8″ chains, where 1/8″ refers to the maximum thickness of a sprocket that can be used with the chain.

Typically chains with parallel shaped links have an even number of links, with each narrow link followed by a broad one. Chains built up with a uniform type of link, narrow at 1 and broad at the other end, can be made with an odd number of links, which can be an advantage to adapt to a special chainwheel-distance; on the other side such a chain tends to be not so strong.

Roller chains made using ISO standard are sometimes called as isochains.

Compatibility of Chain Sprockets with Wheels

In general, chain sprockets are designed to work with specific types of wheels, and there are certain requirements for ensuring proper compatibility:

  • Chain Size and Pitch: The chain sprocket must match the size and pitch of the chain it is intended to work with. For example, if you have a roller chain with a pitch of 0.625 inches, you need a sprocket with the same pitch to ensure a proper fit.
  • Number of Teeth: The number of teeth on the sprocket should be compatible with the number of chain links. The chain should mesh smoothly with the sprocket without any binding or skipping.
  • Tooth Profile: The tooth profile of the sprocket should match the shape of the chain’s rollers to ensure smooth engagement and minimize wear.
  • Shaft Size: The center hole (bore) of the sprocket should match the diameter of the shaft it will be mounted on. Using the correct shaft size ensures a secure fit and prevents wobbling.
  • Hub Configuration: Some sprockets have hubs, which are extensions on either side of the sprocket. The hub’s length and configuration should match the requirements of the specific application.
  • Material and Strength: Consider the material and strength of the sprocket based on the application’s load and environmental conditions. Heavy-duty applications may require sprockets made of robust materials to withstand the forces and stresses.

It’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines when selecting a chain sprocket for a particular wheel. Mixing incompatible sprockets and wheels can result in premature wear, inefficiencies, and potential safety hazards. If you are unsure about the compatibility, consult with the manufacturer or a knowledgeable expert to ensure you choose the right sprocket for your specific application.

Using wheel sprocket Assembly in Robotics and Automation

Yes, wheel sprocket assemblies are commonly used in robotics and automation systems to transmit power and facilitate movement. These systems offer several advantages for robotic applications:

  • Efficiency: wheel sprocket assemblies provide efficient power transmission, ensuring smooth and precise movement of robotic components.
  • Compact Design: The compact nature of sprockets and wheels allows for space-saving designs, making them ideal for robotic applications where space is limited.
  • Precision: Sprockets and wheels with accurate teeth profiles provide precise motion control, crucial for robotics and automation tasks that require high levels of accuracy.
  • Low Noise: Properly lubricated and maintained wheel sprocket systems generate minimal noise during operation, contributing to quieter robotic movements.
  • Customizability: wheel sprocket assemblies can be customized to suit specific robotic requirements, such as different gear ratios, sizes, and materials.
  • Multiple Configurations: Depending on the robotic application, different configurations like single or multiple sprockets, idler sprockets, or rack and pinion systems can be used.
  • High Load Capacity: Sprockets made from durable materials like steel can handle substantial loads, making them suitable for heavy-duty robotic tasks.

Examples of robotics and automation systems that commonly use wheel sprocket assemblies include:

  • Robotic Arms: wheel sprocket systems are utilized in robotic arms to control their movement and reach.
  • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs): AGVs use wheel sprocket assemblies for propulsion and steering, enabling them to navigate autonomously.
  • Conveyor Systems: In automated factories, conveyor belts are often driven by sprockets and wheels for efficient material handling.
  • Mobile Robots: Wheeled mobile robots use wheel sprocket assemblies to drive their wheels, enabling them to move in various directions.
  • Robot Grippers: wheel sprocket mechanisms can be integrated into robot grippers to facilitate gripping and handling objects.

The choice to use wheel sprocket assemblies in robotics and automation depends on the specific application requirements, load capacity, precision, and environmental conditions. By selecting the appropriate sprockets, wheels, and materials, engineers can ensure reliable and efficient robotic performance in a wide range of automated tasks.

Calculating Gear Ratio for a wheel sprocket Setup

In a wheel sprocket system, the gear ratio represents the relationship between the number of teeth on the sprocket and the number of teeth on the wheel. The gear ratio determines the speed and torque relationship between the two components. To calculate the gear ratio, use the following formula:

Gear Ratio = Number of Teeth on Sprocket ÷ Number of Teeth on Wheel

For example, if the sprocket has 20 teeth and the wheel has 60 teeth, the gear ratio would be:

Gear Ratio = 20 ÷ 60 = 1/3

The gear ratio can also be expressed as a decimal or percentage. In the above example, the gear ratio can be expressed as 0.3333 or 33.33%.

It’s important to note that the gear ratio affects the rotational speed and torque of the wheel sprocket. A gear ratio greater than 1 indicates that the sprocket’s speed is higher than the wheel’s speed, resulting in increased rotational speed and reduced torque at the wheel. Conversely, a gear ratio less than 1 indicates that the sprocket’s speed is lower than the wheel’s speed, resulting in decreased rotational speed and increased torque at the wheel.

The gear ratio is crucial in various applications where precise control of speed and torque is required, such as bicycles, automobiles, and industrial machinery.

ROLLER CHAIN

Roller chain or bush roller chain is the type of chain drive most commonly used for transmission of mechanical power on many kinds of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, including conveyors, wire- and tube-drawing machines, printing presses, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. It consists of a series of short cylindrical rollers held together by side links. It is driven by a toothed wheel called a sprocket. It is a simple, reliable, and efficient means of power transmission.

CONSTRUCTION OF THE CHAIN

Two different sizes of roller chain, showing construction.
There are 2 types of links alternating in the bush roller chain. The first type is inner links, having 2 inner plates held together by 2 sleeves or bushings CHINAMFG which rotate 2 rollers. Inner links alternate with the second type, the outer links, consisting of 2 outer plates held together by pins passing through the bushings of the inner links. The “bushingless” roller chain is similar in operation though not in construction; instead of separate bushings or sleeves holding the inner plates together, the plate has a tube stamped into it protruding from the hole which serves the same purpose. This has the advantage of removing 1 step in assembly of the chain.

The roller chain design reduces friction compared to simpler designs, resulting in higher efficiency and less wear. The original power transmission chain varieties lacked rollers and bushings, with both the inner and outer plates held by pins which directly contacted the sprocket teeth; however this configuration exhibited extremely rapid wear of both the sprocket teeth, and the plates where they pivoted on the pins. This problem was partially solved by the development of bushed chains, with the pins holding the outer plates passing through bushings or sleeves connecting the inner plates. This distributed the wear over a greater area; however the teeth of the sprockets still wore more rapidly than is desirable, from the sliding friction against the bushings. The addition of rollers surrounding the bushing sleeves of the chain and provided rolling contact with the teeth of the sprockets resulting in excellent resistance to wear of both sprockets and chain as well. There is even very low friction, as long as the chain is sufficiently lubricated. Continuous, clean, lubrication of roller chains is of primary importance for efficient operation as well as correct tensioning.

LUBRICATION

Many driving chains (for example, in factory equipment, or driving a camshaft inside an internal combustion engine) operate in clean environments, and thus the wearing surfaces (that is, the pins and bushings) are safe from precipitation and airborne grit, many even in a sealed environment such as an oil bath. Some roller chains are designed to have o-rings built into the space between the outside link plate and the inside roller link plates. Chain manufacturers began to include this feature in 1971 after the application was invented by Joseph Montano while working for Whitney Chain of Hartford, Connecticut. O-rings were included as a way to improve lubrication to the links of power transmission chains, a service that is vitally important to extending their working life. These rubber fixtures form a barrier that holds factory applied lubricating grease inside the pin and bushing wear areas. Further, the rubber o-rings prevent dirt and other contaminants from entering inside the chain linkages, where such particles would otherwise cause significant wear.[citation needed]

There are also many chains that have to operate in dirty conditions, and for size or operational reasons cannot be sealed. Examples include chains on farm equipment, bicycles, and chain saws. These chains will necessarily have relatively high rates of wear, particularly when the operators are prepared to accept more friction, less efficiency, more noise and more frequent replacement as they neglect lubrication and adjustment.

Many oil-based lubricants attract dirt and other particles, eventually forming an CHINAMFG paste that will compound wear on chains. This problem can be circumvented by use of a “dry” PTFE spray, which forms a solid film after application and repels both particles and moisture.

VARIANTS DESIGN

Layout of a roller chain: 1. Outer plate, 2. Inner plate, 3. Pin, 4. Bushing, 5. Roller
If the chain is not being used for a high wear application (for instance if it is just transmitting motion from a hand-operated lever to a control shaft on a machine, or a sliding door on an oven), then 1 of the simpler types of chain may still be used. Conversely, where extra strength but the smooth drive of a smaller pitch is required, the chain may be “siamesed”; instead of just 2 rows of plates on the outer sides of the chain, there may be 3 (“duplex”), 4 (“triplex”), or more rows of plates running parallel, with bushings and rollers between each adjacent pair, and the same number of rows of teeth running in parallel on the sprockets to match. Timing chains on automotive engines, for example, typically have multiple rows of plates called strands.

Roller chain is made in several sizes, the most common American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards being 40, 50, 60, and 80. The first digit(s) indicate the pitch of the chain in eighths of an inch, with the last digit being 0 for standard chain, 1 for lightweight chain, and 5 for bushed chain with no rollers. Thus, a chain with half-inch pitch would be a #40 while a #160 sprocket would have teeth spaced 2 inches apart, etc. Metric pitches are expressed in sixteenths of an inch; thus a metric #8 chain (08B-1) would be equivalent to an ANSI #40. Most roller chain is made from plain carbon or alloy steel, but stainless steel is used in food processing machinery or other places where lubrication is a problem, and nylon or brass are occasionally seen for the same reason.

Roller chain is ordinarily hooked up using a master link (also known as a connecting link), which typically has 1 pin held by a horseshoe clip rather than friction fit, allowing it to be inserted or removed with simple tools. Chain with a removable link or pin is also known as cottered chain, which allows the length of the chain to be adjusted. Half links (also known as offsets) are available and are used to increase the length of the chain by a single roller. Riveted roller chain has the master link (also known as a connecting link) “riveted” or mashed on the ends. These pins are made to be durable and are not removable.

USE

An example of 2 ‘ghost’ sprockets tensioning a triplex roller chain system
Roller chains are used in low- to mid-speed drives at around 600 to 800 feet per minute; however, at higher speeds, around 2,000 to 3,000 feet per minute, V-belts are normally used due to wear and noise issues.
A bicycle chain is a form of roller chain. Bicycle chains may have a master link, or may require a chain tool for removal and installation. A similar but larger and thus stronger chain is used on most motorcycles although it is sometimes replaced by either a toothed belt or a shaft drive, which offer lower noise level and fewer maintenance requirements.
The great majority of automobile engines use roller chains to drive the camshaft(s). Very high performance engines often use gear drive, and starting in the early 1960s toothed belts were used by some manufacturers.
Chains are also used in forklifts using hydraulic rams as a pulley to raise and lower the carriage; however, these chains are not considered roller chains, but are classified as lift or leaf chains.
Chainsaw cutting chains superficially resemble roller chains but are more closely related to leaf chains. They are driven by projecting drive links which also serve to locate the chain CHINAMFG the bar.

A perhaps unusual use of a pair of motorcycle chains is in the Harrier Jump Jet, where a chain drive from an air motor is used to rotate the movable engine nozzles, allowing them to be pointed downwards for hovering flight, or to the rear for normal CHINAMFG flight, a system known as Thrust vectoring.

WEAR

 

The effect of wear on a roller chain is to increase the pitch (spacing of the links), causing the chain to grow longer. Note that this is due to wear at the pivoting pins and bushes, not from actual stretching of the metal (as does happen to some flexible steel components such as the hand-brake cable of a motor vehicle).

With modern chains it is unusual for a chain (other than that of a bicycle) to wear until it breaks, since a worn chain leads to the rapid onset of wear on the teeth of the sprockets, with ultimate failure being the loss of all the teeth on the sprocket. The sprockets (in particular the smaller of the two) suffer a grinding motion that puts a characteristic hook shape into the driven face of the teeth. (This effect is made worse by a chain improperly tensioned, but is unavoidable no matter what care is taken). The worn teeth (and chain) no longer provides smooth transmission of power and this may become evident from the noise, the vibration or (in car engines using a timing chain) the variation in ignition timing seen with a timing light. Both sprockets and chain should be replaced in these cases, since a new chain on worn sprockets will not last long. However, in less severe cases it may be possible to save the larger of the 2 sprockets, since it is always the smaller 1 that suffers the most wear. Only in very light-weight applications such as a bicycle, or in extreme cases of improper tension, will the chain normally jump off the sprockets.

The lengthening due to wear of a chain is calculated by the following formula:

M = the length of a number of links measured

S = the number of links measured

P = Pitch

In industry, it is usual to monitor the movement of the chain tensioner (whether manual or automatic) or the exact length of a drive chain (one rule of thumb is to replace a roller chain which has elongated 3% on an adjustable drive or 1.5% on a fixed-center drive). A simpler method, particularly suitable for the cycle or motorcycle user, is to attempt to pull the chain away from the larger of the 2 sprockets, whilst ensuring the chain is taut. Any significant movement (e.g. making it possible to see through a gap) probably indicates a chain worn up to and beyond the limit. Sprocket damage will result if the problem is ignored. Sprocket wear cancels this effect, and may mask chain wear.

CHAIN STRENGTH

The most common measure of roller chain’s strength is tensile strength. Tensile strength represents how much load a chain can withstand under a one-time load before breaking. Just as important as tensile strength is a chain’s fatigue strength. The critical factors in a chain’s fatigue strength is the quality of steel used to manufacture the chain, the heat treatment of the chain components, the quality of the pitch hole fabrication of the linkplates, and the type of shot plus the intensity of shot peen coverage on the linkplates. Other factors can include the thickness of the linkplates and the design (contour) of the linkplates. The rule of thumb for roller chain operating on a continuous drive is for the chain load to not exceed a mere 1/6 or 1/9 of the chain’s tensile strength, depending on the type of master links used (press-fit vs. slip-fit)[citation needed]. Roller chains operating on a continuous drive beyond these thresholds can and typically do fail prematurely via linkplate fatigue failure.

The standard minimum ultimate strength of the ANSI 29.1 steel chain is 12,500 x (pitch, in inches)2. X-ring and O-Ring chains greatly decrease wear by means of internal lubricants, increasing chain life. The internal lubrication is inserted by means of a vacuum when riveting the chain together.

CHAIN STHangZhouRDS

Standards organizations (such as ANSI and ISO) maintain standards for design, dimensions, and interchangeability of transmission chains. For example, the following Table shows data from ANSI standard B29.1-2011 (Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets) developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). See the references[8][9][10] for additional information.

For mnemonic purposes, below is another presentation of key dimensions from the same standard, expressed in fractions of an inch (which was part of the thinking behind the choice of preferred numbers in the ANSI standard):

Pitch (inches) Pitch expressed

12 48 41 14
12 48 40 516
58 58 50 38
34 68 60 12
1 88 80 58

Notes:
1. The pitch is the distance between roller centers. The width is the distance between the link plates (i.e. slightly more than the roller width to allow for clearance).
2. The right-hand digit of the standard denotes 0 = normal chain, 1 = lightweight chain, 5 = rollerless bushing chain.
3. The left-hand digit denotes the number of eighths of an inch that make up the pitch.
4. An “H” following the standard number denotes heavyweight chain. A hyphenated number following the standard number denotes double-strand (2), triple-strand (3), and so on. Thus 60H-3 denotes number 60 heavyweight triple-strand chain.
 A typical bicycle chain (for derailleur gears) uses narrow 1⁄2-inch-pitch chain. The width of the chain is variable, and does not affect the load capacity. The more sprockets at the rear wheel (historically 3-6, nowadays 7-12 sprockets), the narrower the chain. Chains are sold according to the number of speeds they are designed to work with, for example, “10 speed chain”. Hub gear or single speed bicycles use 1/2″ x 1/8″ chains, where 1/8″ refers to the maximum thickness of a sprocket that can be used with the chain.

Typically chains with parallel shaped links have an even number of links, with each narrow link followed by a broad one. Chains built up with a uniform type of link, narrow at 1 and broad at the other end, can be made with an odd number of links, which can be an advantage to adapt to a special chainwheel-distance; on the other side such a chain tends to be not so strong.

Roller chains made using ISO standard are sometimes called as isochains.

transmission chain

How does the choice of chain attachment affect the functionality of a transmission chain?

The choice of chain attachment plays a critical role in the functionality and performance of a transmission chain. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Load Capacity: Different chain attachments are designed to handle specific types and amounts of loads. The selection of the appropriate attachment is crucial to ensure that the transmission chain can safely and efficiently carry the intended load. The type of attachment, such as extended pins, cleats, or slats, can determine the chain’s ability to handle heavy or irregular loads.

2. Application Compatibility: The choice of chain attachment should align with the specific application requirements. Different industries and applications may require specialized attachments that are designed to address particular challenges or provide specific functionalities. For example, attachments used in conveying systems may include rollers, flights, or grippers to facilitate smooth material transfer.

3. Alignment and Tracking: Certain chain attachments, such as guide rails or track systems, help to ensure proper alignment and tracking of the transmission chain. These attachments minimize the risk of chain derailment or misalignment, which can lead to operational issues and reduced efficiency.

4. Positioning and Orientation: Some applications require precise positioning or orientation of objects or components. Chain attachments, such as indexing pins or brackets, are designed to facilitate accurate positioning or rotation of objects along the chain’s path. These attachments contribute to the reliable and precise operation of the transmission chain.

5. Material Handling: In material handling applications, chain attachments are often used to secure or hold items during transport. Attachments like hooks, clamps, or brackets enable the secure attachment of objects to the chain, preventing slippage or displacement during movement. This ensures safe and efficient material handling operations.

6. Specialized Functions: Chain attachments can provide additional functions based on specific application requirements. For example, attachments such as sensors, RFID tags, or lubrication reservoirs can be integrated into the chain design to enable monitoring, tracking, or lubrication functions. These specialized attachments enhance the overall functionality and performance of the transmission chain.

It’s important to select the appropriate chain attachment based on the specific application needs, load requirements, and desired functionality. Consulting with industry experts or chain manufacturers can help in determining the most suitable attachment options for optimal transmission chain performance.

How does the choice of lubricant impact the performance of a transmission chain?

The choice of lubricant plays a critical role in ensuring the optimal performance and longevity of a transmission chain. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Reduced Friction and Wear: Lubricants create a protective film between the moving parts of the transmission chain, reducing friction and wear. This helps to minimize metal-to-metal contact and prevent surface damage, extending the chain’s lifespan.

2. Enhanced Efficiency: Proper lubrication reduces energy losses due to friction, improving the overall efficiency of the transmission system. By reducing frictional resistance, the lubricant allows for smoother power transmission, reducing power consumption and increasing system efficiency.

3. Heat Dissipation: Lubricants aid in heat dissipation by absorbing and dissipating heat generated during chain operation. This helps to prevent excessive chain temperature rise, which can lead to accelerated wear, lubricant breakdown, and potential chain failure.

4. Corrosion Protection: Lubricants provide a protective barrier against moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. This helps to prevent rust and corrosion, which can weaken the chain and reduce its performance. Choosing a lubricant with anti-corrosion properties is essential, especially in harsh or corrosive environments.

5. Contaminant Removal: Lubricants can help remove contaminants such as dirt, dust, and debris from the chain’s contact surfaces. This prevents abrasive particles from causing premature wear and damage to the chain, ensuring smooth operation and reducing the risk of chain failure.

6. Temperature Stability: Different lubricants have varying temperature stability properties. It is crucial to select a lubricant that can maintain its viscosity and lubricating properties within the operating temperature range of the transmission chain. This ensures consistent lubrication and performance under various temperature conditions.

7. Compatibility: It is important to choose a lubricant that is compatible with the materials used in the transmission chain. Some lubricants may react with certain chain materials, leading to degradation or damage. Ensuring compatibility helps maintain the integrity of the chain and avoids any adverse effects.

8. Lubrication Interval: The choice of lubricant can also affect the lubrication interval, i.e., the frequency at which the chain needs to be relubricated. Some lubricants offer longer-lasting lubrication properties, reducing the maintenance requirements and downtime associated with frequent relubrication.

It is crucial to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and guidelines regarding lubrication for the specific transmission chain. Regular inspection, monitoring, and proper maintenance practices should be implemented to ensure the chain remains adequately lubricated for optimal performance and longevity.

transmission chain

What is a transmission chain and how does it work?

A transmission chain is a type of mechanical chain used to transmit power between two or more rotating shafts. It consists of a series of interconnected links that engage with toothed sprockets to transfer motion and torque.

In a typical transmission chain system, the chain wraps around two or more sprockets, with one sprocket connected to the input shaft and the other(s) connected to the output shaft(s). As the input shaft rotates, the chain moves along the sprockets, causing the output shaft(s) to rotate at the same speed or different speeds depending on the sprocket sizes.

The functioning of a transmission chain relies on the principle of mechanical power transmission through interlocking links and the engagement between the chain and the sprocket teeth. The chain’s links are designed to fit precisely with the sprocket teeth, ensuring a positive and reliable transfer of power.

As the chain engages with the sprockets, the teeth on the sprockets push against the chain’s rollers or pins, causing the chain to move. This movement transfers rotational motion and torque from the input shaft to the output shaft(s), enabling the transmission of power and facilitating various mechanical operations.

Transmission chains are widely used in various applications such as automotive engines, motorcycles, bicycles, industrial machinery, and power transmission systems. They are valued for their durability, efficiency, and ability to handle high loads and speeds.

Alternatives to Chain Sprockets in wheel sprocket Configuration

While chain sprockets are commonly used in wheel sprocket configurations, there are alternative methods for power transmission in various applications:

  • Gear and Gear Rack: Gears are toothed wheels that mesh with each other to transmit power. Instead of using a chain and sprocket, gears can directly engage with each other, offering a smooth and efficient power transfer. Gear racks, which are linear gears, can be used in place of wheels for linear motion applications.
  • Belt and Pulley: Belts and pulleys offer a flexible and quiet means of power transmission. They work similarly to chain and sprocket systems but use belts instead of chains. Pulleys have grooves that grip the belt, allowing power to be transferred between the pulleys.
  • Gear Train: A gear train consists of multiple gears meshed together to achieve specific speed and torque ratios. Gear trains are often used in complex machinery and mechanical systems where precise power transmission is required.
  • Direct Drive: In some applications, direct drive mechanisms can be used, where the motor or power source is directly connected to the wheel or load without any intermediate components like sprockets or gears.
  • Friction Drive: Friction drive systems use the friction between two surfaces to transfer power. One surface, such as a rubber wheel, is pressed against another surface to achieve power transmission.

The choice of alternative power transmission methods depends on various factors, including the application requirements, available space, speed, torque, and efficiency considerations. Each alternative method has its advantages and limitations, and the selection should be based on the specific needs of the mechanical system.

When considering alternatives to chain sprockets, it is essential to analyze the requirements of your application and consult with engineering experts or manufacturers to determine the most suitable method of power transmission for optimal performance and longevity.

How does the alignment of sprockets affect the performance of a drive chain?

The alignment of sprockets is critical for ensuring the optimal performance and longevity of a drive chain. Here is a detailed explanation:

The alignment of sprockets directly affects the following aspects of a drive chain’s performance:

  • Smooth Power Transmission: Proper alignment of sprockets ensures the smooth engagement and disengagement of the chain with the sprocket teeth. When the sprockets are aligned correctly, the chain articulates smoothly, minimizing friction, wear, and noise. This promotes efficient power transmission and prevents premature chain failure.
  • Reduced Wear and Elongation: Misaligned sprockets can cause uneven loading on the chain, leading to accelerated wear and elongation. When the sprockets are aligned, the chain experiences equal forces on all links, resulting in more uniform wear distribution and reducing the risk of chain elongation. Proper alignment helps maintain the chain’s pitch and overall length, ensuring consistent power transmission and extending the chain’s service life.
  • Minimized Side Loads: Misaligned sprockets can create side loads on the chain, causing it to run at an angle or contact the side plates excessively. This leads to increased friction, wear, and stress on the chain components. Proper alignment reduces these side loads, allowing the chain to run smoothly and minimizing unnecessary wear and stress on the chain’s components.
  • Prevention of Chain Skipping or Jumping: Misaligned sprockets can cause the chain to skip or jump teeth, resulting in loss of power transmission, erratic operation, and potential damage to the chain and sprockets. Proper alignment ensures that the chain remains engaged with the sprocket teeth, preventing any skipping or jumping and ensuring reliable power transmission.
  • Optimal Tension Distribution: Properly aligned sprockets contribute to the even distribution of chain tension. When the sprockets are aligned, the tension is evenly distributed along the chain, reducing the risk of localized stress points and chain elongation. This helps maintain consistent tension, improves power transmission efficiency, and extends the life of the chain and sprockets.

To achieve proper sprocket alignment, it is important to ensure that the sprockets are mounted securely, aligned parallel to each other, and positioned at the correct distance apart. Additionally, the sprockets should have the appropriate tooth profile and pitch diameter to match the chain’s specifications.

Regular inspection and maintenance are essential to verify and maintain sprocket alignment. This includes checking for signs of wear, damage, or misalignment, as well as periodically adjusting the tension and lubricating the chain as needed.

By ensuring the proper alignment of sprockets, operators can achieve smooth power transmission, reduced wear, minimized side loads, prevention of chain skipping, and optimal tension distribution. This ultimately improves the performance, efficiency, and reliability of the drive chain system.

How does the cost of a drive chain compare to other power transmission systems?

The cost of a drive chain can vary depending on various factors such as the type of chain, material, size, and quality. Here is a detailed explanation of how the cost of a drive chain compares to other power transmission systems:

  • Initial Cost: In general, drive chains tend to have a lower initial cost compared to some other power transmission systems such as gear drives or belt drives. This is especially true for standard roller chains that are widely available and commonly used.
  • Installation and Maintenance Cost: The installation and maintenance cost of a drive chain is usually reasonable. Chains are relatively easy to install and maintain, requiring routine inspections, lubrication, and occasional adjustments. This simplicity can contribute to overall cost-effectiveness.
  • Longevity and Durability: Drive chains are known for their durability and long service life when properly maintained. Although they may require periodic replacement due to wear, the extended lifespan of a drive chain can provide cost savings over time compared to systems that require more frequent replacement or repair.
  • Application-Specific Costs: In some specialized applications, such as high-performance or heavy-duty applications, the cost of drive chains can be higher. This is often due to the use of specialized chains with specific features, materials, or coatings that enhance performance and durability in demanding environments.
  • Overall Cost-Effectiveness: Considering the initial cost, maintenance, and longevity, drive chains are generally considered cost-effective compared to other power transmission systems. Their reliability, efficiency, and suitability for a wide range of applications contribute to their value proposition.

It’s important to note that the cost comparison between drive chains and other power transmission systems may vary depending on specific application requirements, environmental factors, and the desired performance characteristics. It is recommended to consider the specific needs of the application and consult with experts or suppliers to determine the most cost-effective solution.

ROLLER CHAIN

Roller chain or bush roller chain is the type of chain drive most commonly used for transmission of mechanical power on many kinds of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, including conveyors, wire- and tube-drawing machines, printing presses, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. It consists of a series of short cylindrical rollers held together by side links. It is driven by a toothed wheel called a sprocket. It is a simple, reliable, and efficient means of power transmission.

CONSTRUCTION OF THE CHAIN

Two different sizes of roller chain, showing construction.
There are 2 types of links alternating in the bush roller chain. The first type is inner links, having 2 inner plates held together by 2 sleeves or bushings CHINAMFG which rotate 2 rollers. Inner links alternate with the second type, the outer links, consisting of 2 outer plates held together by pins passing through the bushings of the inner links. The “bushingless” roller chain is similar in operation though not in construction; instead of separate bushings or sleeves holding the inner plates together, the plate has a tube stamped into it protruding from the hole which serves the same purpose. This has the advantage of removing 1 step in assembly of the chain.

The roller chain design reduces friction compared to simpler designs, resulting in higher efficiency and less wear. The original power transmission chain varieties lacked rollers and bushings, with both the inner and outer plates held by pins which directly contacted the sprocket teeth; however this configuration exhibited extremely rapid wear of both the sprocket teeth, and the plates where they pivoted on the pins. This problem was partially solved by the development of bushed chains, with the pins holding the outer plates passing through bushings or sleeves connecting the inner plates. This distributed the wear over a greater area; however the teeth of the sprockets still wore more rapidly than is desirable, from the sliding friction against the bushings. The addition of rollers surrounding the bushing sleeves of the chain and provided rolling contact with the teeth of the sprockets resulting in excellent resistance to wear of both sprockets and chain as well. There is even very low friction, as long as the chain is sufficiently lubricated. Continuous, clean, lubrication of roller chains is of primary importance for efficient operation as well as correct tensioning.

LUBRICATION

Many driving chains (for example, in factory equipment, or driving a camshaft inside an internal combustion engine) operate in clean environments, and thus the wearing surfaces (that is, the pins and bushings) are safe from precipitation and airborne grit, many even in a sealed environment such as an oil bath. Some roller chains are designed to have o-rings built into the space between the outside link plate and the inside roller link plates. Chain manufacturers began to include this feature in 1971 after the application was invented by Joseph Montano while working for Whitney Chain of Hartford, Connecticut. O-rings were included as a way to improve lubrication to the links of power transmission chains, a service that is vitally important to extending their working life. These rubber fixtures form a barrier that holds factory applied lubricating grease inside the pin and bushing wear areas. Further, the rubber o-rings prevent dirt and other contaminants from entering inside the chain linkages, where such particles would otherwise cause significant wear.[citation needed]

There are also many chains that have to operate in dirty conditions, and for size or operational reasons cannot be sealed. Examples include chains on farm equipment, bicycles, and chain saws. These chains will necessarily have relatively high rates of wear, particularly when the operators are prepared to accept more friction, less efficiency, more noise and more frequent replacement as they neglect lubrication and adjustment.

Many oil-based lubricants attract dirt and other particles, eventually forming an CHINAMFG paste that will compound wear on chains. This problem can be circumvented by use of a “dry” PTFE spray, which forms a solid film after application and repels both particles and moisture.

VARIANTS DESIGN

Layout of a roller chain: 1. Outer plate, 2. Inner plate, 3. Pin, 4. Bushing, 5. Roller
If the chain is not being used for a high wear application (for instance if it is just transmitting motion from a hand-operated lever to a control shaft on a machine, or a sliding door on an oven), then 1 of the simpler types of chain may still be used. Conversely, where extra strength but the smooth drive of a smaller pitch is required, the chain may be “siamesed”; instead of just 2 rows of plates on the outer sides of the chain, there may be 3 (“duplex”), 4 (“triplex”), or more rows of plates running parallel, with bushings and rollers between each adjacent pair, and the same number of rows of teeth running in parallel on the sprockets to match. Timing chains on automotive engines, for example, typically have multiple rows of plates called strands.

Roller chain is made in several sizes, the most common American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards being 40, 50, 60, and 80. The first digit(s) indicate the pitch of the chain in eighths of an inch, with the last digit being 0 for standard chain, 1 for lightweight chain, and 5 for bushed chain with no rollers. Thus, a chain with half-inch pitch would be a #40 while a #160 sprocket would have teeth spaced 2 inches apart, etc. Metric pitches are expressed in sixteenths of an inch; thus a metric #8 chain (08B-1) would be equivalent to an ANSI #40. Most roller chain is made from plain carbon or alloy steel, but stainless steel is used in food processing machinery or other places where lubrication is a problem, and nylon or brass are occasionally seen for the same reason.

Roller chain is ordinarily hooked up using a master link (also known as a connecting link), which typically has 1 pin held by a horseshoe clip rather than friction fit, allowing it to be inserted or removed with simple tools. Chain with a removable link or pin is also known as cottered chain, which allows the length of the chain to be adjusted. Half links (also known as offsets) are available and are used to increase the length of the chain by a single roller. Riveted roller chain has the master link (also known as a connecting link) “riveted” or mashed on the ends. These pins are made to be durable and are not removable.

USE

Roller chains are used in low- to mid-speed drives at around 600 to 800 feet per minute; however, at higher speeds, around 2,000 to 3,000 feet per minute, V-belts are normally used due to wear and noise issues.
A bicycle chain is a form of roller chain. Bicycle chains may have a master link, or may require a chain tool for removal and installation. A similar but larger and thus stronger chain is used on most motorcycles although it is sometimes replaced by either a toothed belt or a shaft drive, which offer lower noise level and fewer maintenance requirements.
The great majority of automobile engines use roller chains to drive the camshaft(s). Very high performance engines often use gear drive, and starting in the early 1960s toothed belts were used by some manufacturers.
Chains are also used in forklifts using hydraulic rams as a pulley to raise and lower the carriage; however, these chains are not considered roller chains, but are classified as lift or leaf chains.
Chainsaw cutting chains superficially resemble roller chains but are more closely related to leaf chains. They are driven by projecting drive links which also serve to locate the chain CHINAMFG the bar.

A perhaps unusual use of a pair of motorcycle chains is in the Harrier Jump Jet, where a chain drive from an air motor is used to rotate the movable engine nozzles, allowing them to be pointed downwards for hovering flight, or to the rear for normal CHINAMFG flight, a system known as Thrust vectoring.

WEAR

 

The effect of wear on a roller chain is to increase the pitch (spacing of the links), causing the chain to grow longer. Note that this is due to wear at the pivoting pins and bushes, not from actual stretching of the metal (as does happen to some flexible steel components such as the hand-brake cable of a motor vehicle).

With modern chains it is unusual for a chain (other than that of a bicycle) to wear until it breaks, since a worn chain leads to the rapid onset of wear on the teeth of the sprockets, with ultimate failure being the loss of all the teeth on the sprocket. The sprockets (in particular the smaller of the two) suffer a grinding motion that puts a characteristic hook shape into the driven face of the teeth. (This effect is made worse by a chain improperly tensioned, but is unavoidable no matter what care is taken). The worn teeth (and chain) no longer provides smooth transmission of power and this may become evident from the noise, the vibration or (in car engines using a timing chain) the variation in ignition timing seen with a timing light. Both sprockets and chain should be replaced in these cases, since a new chain on worn sprockets will not last long. However, in less severe cases it may be possible to save the larger of the 2 sprockets, since it is always the smaller 1 that suffers the most wear. Only in very light-weight applications such as a bicycle, or in extreme cases of improper tension, will the chain normally jump off the sprockets.

The lengthening due to wear of a chain is calculated by the following formula:

M = the length of a number of links measured

S = the number of links measured

P = Pitch

In industry, it is usual to monitor the movement of the chain tensioner (whether manual or automatic) or the exact length of a drive chain (one rule of thumb is to replace a roller chain which has elongated 3% on an adjustable drive or 1.5% on a fixed-center drive). A simpler method, particularly suitable for the cycle or motorcycle user, is to attempt to pull the chain away from the larger of the 2 sprockets, whilst ensuring the chain is taut. Any significant movement (e.g. making it possible to see through a gap) probably indicates a chain worn up to and beyond the limit. Sprocket damage will result if the problem is ignored. Sprocket wear cancels this effect, and may mask chain wear.

CHAIN STRENGTH

The most common measure of roller chain’s strength is tensile strength. Tensile strength represents how much load a chain can withstand under a one-time load before breaking. Just as important as tensile strength is a chain’s fatigue strength. The critical factors in a chain’s fatigue strength is the quality of steel used to manufacture the chain, the heat treatment of the chain components, the quality of the pitch hole fabrication of the linkplates, and the type of shot plus the intensity of shot peen coverage on the linkplates. Other factors can include the thickness of the linkplates and the design (contour) of the linkplates. The rule of thumb for roller chain operating on a continuous drive is for the chain load to not exceed a mere 1/6 or 1/9 of the chain’s tensile strength, depending on the type of master links used (press-fit vs. slip-fit)[citation needed]. Roller chains operating on a continuous drive beyond these thresholds can and typically do fail prematurely via linkplate fatigue failure.

The standard minimum ultimate strength of the ANSI 29.1 steel chain is 12,500 x (pitch, in inches)2. X-ring and O-Ring chains greatly decrease wear by means of internal lubricants, increasing chain life. The internal lubrication is inserted by means of a vacuum when riveting the chain together.

CHAIN STHangZhouRDS

Standards organizations (such as ANSI and ISO) maintain standards for design, dimensions, and interchangeability of transmission chains. For example, the following Table shows data from ANSI standard B29.1-2011 (Precision Power Transmission Roller Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets) developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). See the references[8][9][10] for additional information.

For mnemonic purposes, below is another presentation of key dimensions from the same standard, expressed in fractions of an inch (which was part of the thinking behind the choice of preferred numbers in the ANSI standard):

12 48 40 516
58 58 50 38
34 68 60 12
1 88 80 58

Notes:
1. The pitch is the distance between roller centers. The width is the distance between the link plates (i.e. slightly more than the roller width to allow for clearance).
2. The right-hand digit of the standard denotes 0 = normal chain, 1 = lightweight chain, 5 = rollerless bushing chain.
3. The left-hand digit denotes the number of eighths of an inch that make up the pitch.
4. An “H” following the standard number denotes heavyweight chain. A hyphenated number following the standard number denotes double-strand (2), triple-strand (3), and so on. Thus 60H-3 denotes number 60 heavyweight triple-strand chain.
 A typical bicycle chain (for derailleur gears) uses narrow 1⁄2-inch-pitch chain. The width of the chain is variable, and does not affect the load capacity. The more sprockets at the rear wheel (historically 3-6, nowadays 7-12 sprockets), the narrower the chain. Chains are sold according to the number of speeds they are designed to work with, for example, “10 speed chain”. Hub gear or single speed bicycles use 1/2″ x 1/8″ chains, where 1/8″ refers to the maximum thickness of a sprocket that can be used with the chain.

Typically chains with parallel shaped links have an even number of links, with each narrow link followed by a broad one. Chains built up with a uniform type of link, narrow at 1 and broad at the other end, can be made with an odd number of links, which can be an advantage to adapt to a special chainwheel-distance; on the other side such a chain tends to be not so strong.

Roller chains made using ISO standard are sometimes called as isochains.

transmission chain

Can transmission chains be used in cleanroom or food processing environments?

Yes, transmission chains can be used in cleanroom or food processing environments, but certain considerations need to be taken into account to ensure compliance with hygiene and cleanliness standards. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

In cleanroom or food processing environments, maintaining strict hygiene and preventing contamination is crucial. Transmission chains used in such environments must meet specific requirements to ensure safe and sanitary operations. Here are some key considerations:

1. Material Selection: Transmission chains used in cleanroom or food processing environments should be made from materials that are resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and food residues. Stainless steel chains are commonly preferred due to their excellent corrosion resistance and hygienic properties.

2. Design: The design of the transmission chain should minimize crevices, dead spaces, and other areas where contaminants can accumulate. Smooth surfaces and rounded edges are preferred to facilitate easy cleaning and prevent the buildup of debris.

3. Lubrication: In cleanroom or food processing environments, it is essential to use food-grade lubricants or self-lubricating chains that do not contaminate the products or the surrounding environment. These lubricants should be suitable for incidental food contact and meet relevant food safety standards.

4. Cleaning and Maintenance: Regular cleaning and maintenance procedures should be established to keep the transmission chains clean and free from contaminants. This may involve using approved cleaning agents and following proper cleaning protocols to ensure effective removal of any residues or contaminants.

5. Compliance with Regulations: Cleanroom and food processing environments are subject to specific regulations and standards, such as FDA regulations, HACCP principles, or GMP guidelines. It is essential to ensure that the transmission chains used comply with these regulations and meet the necessary certifications or approvals.

By selecting transmission chains specifically designed for cleanroom or food processing applications and following proper cleaning and maintenance procedures, it is possible to use transmission chains in these environments without compromising hygiene and safety. Working closely with suppliers or manufacturers experienced in providing solutions for cleanroom or food processing applications can help ensure the right chain selection and adherence to the required standards.

How does the choice of lubricant impact the performance of a transmission chain?

The choice of lubricant plays a critical role in ensuring the optimal performance and longevity of a transmission chain. Here’s a detailed answer to the question:

1. Reduced Friction and Wear: Lubricants create a protective film between the moving parts of the transmission chain, reducing friction and wear. This helps to minimize metal-to-metal contact and prevent surface damage, extending the chain’s lifespan.

2. Enhanced Efficiency: Proper lubrication reduces energy losses due to friction, improving the overall efficiency of the transmission system. By reducing frictional resistance, the lubricant allows for smoother power transmission, reducing power consumption and increasing system efficiency.

3. Heat Dissipation: Lubricants aid in heat dissipation by absorbing and dissipating heat generated during chain operation. This helps to prevent excessive chain temperature rise, which can lead to accelerated wear, lubricant breakdown, and potential chain failure.

4. Corrosion Protection: Lubricants provide a protective barrier against moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. This helps to prevent rust and corrosion, which can weaken the chain and reduce its performance. Choosing a lubricant with anti-corrosion properties is essential, especially in harsh or corrosive environments.

5. Contaminant Removal: Lubricants can help remove contaminants such as dirt, dust, and debris from the chain’s contact surfaces. This prevents abrasive particles from causing premature wear and damage to the chain, ensuring smooth operation and reducing the risk of chain failure.

6. Temperature Stability: Different lubricants have varying temperature stability properties. It is crucial to select a lubricant that can maintain its viscosity and lubricating properties within the operating temperature range of the transmission chain. This ensures consistent lubrication and performance under various temperature conditions.

7. Compatibility: It is important to choose a lubricant that is compatible with the materials used in the transmission chain. Some lubricants may react with certain chain materials, leading to degradation or damage. Ensuring compatibility helps maintain the integrity of the chain and avoids any adverse effects.

8. Lubrication Interval: The choice of lubricant can also affect the lubrication interval, i.e., the frequency at which the chain needs to be relubricated. Some lubricants offer longer-lasting lubrication properties, reducing the maintenance requirements and downtime associated with frequent relubrication.

It is crucial to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and guidelines regarding lubrication for the specific transmission chain. Regular inspection, monitoring, and proper maintenance practices should be implemented to ensure the chain remains adequately lubricated for optimal performance and longevity.

transmission chain

What is a transmission chain and how does it work?

A transmission chain is a type of mechanical chain used to transmit power between two or more rotating shafts. It consists of a series of interconnected links that engage with toothed sprockets to transfer motion and torque.

In a typical transmission chain system, the chain wraps around two or more sprockets, with one sprocket connected to the input shaft and the other(s) connected to the output shaft(s). As the input shaft rotates, the chain moves along the sprockets, causing the output shaft(s) to rotate at the same speed or different speeds depending on the sprocket sizes.

The functioning of a transmission chain relies on the principle of mechanical power transmission through interlocking links and the engagement between the chain and the sprocket teeth. The chain’s links are designed to fit precisely with the sprocket teeth, ensuring a positive and reliable transfer of power.

As the chain engages with the sprockets, the teeth on the sprockets push against the chain’s rollers or pins, causing the chain to move. This movement transfers rotational motion and torque from the input shaft to the output shaft(s), enabling the transmission of power and facilitating various mechanical operations.

Transmission chains are widely used in various applications such as automotive engines, motorcycles, bicycles, industrial machinery, and power transmission systems. They are valued for their durability, efficiency, and ability to handle high loads and speeds.
