Chains are used frequently in industrial manufacturing environments. Chain systems, which serve efficient solutions in fundamental requirements such as lifting, transporting and drive, find many application spheres in industrial manufacturing. According to usage spheres, chain types can be aggregated in these three topics:
1.Load lifting chains
The main criterion in chain choice is the load to be subjected; eg., they should carry an appropriate power transmission potential for the application they will be used.
Load lifting chains, as expressed in the name, are used to carry something from somewhere. Here, the chain shall be used for lifting the material that will be used and, for this reason, pulling force is the main subject at this point. Round steel link chains as the general preference for these tasks, are used often at lifting machines.
Transfer chains, again as expressed in the name, is the general definition for the chain types benefited for transferring materials to elsewhere. For these applications, chains that have rotating skills and round steel link formation are used.
Drive chain is the name given to the chain type which commission to transmit energy emerging at power center to the desired environment. Drive chains are used in many different spheres such as tool centers, food & beverages industry and gearboxes.Despite transfer and drive chains are discrete theoretically, they can be used for the same purposes.
Chain maintenance and proper work
Chains are generally sold as non-packed. These chains’ pitch tips have to be connected, in order to be prepared for usage and this requires expertise.Another critical subject in chains is the tension. For sustainable functioning of chains in compatibility with the gears, without disruption and power loss, they have to be assembled with a pre-tension.
Chains have to be lubricated periodically for preventing subjection to friction caused effects.
It can be told that, compared with belts, chains have quite higher power transmission capability. However, there is a point to be remembered; chain costs are quite much higher than belts.
There are many companies, expert in chain manufacturing and post-sales services in Turkey and in the world.
