The types of chain transmission chain can be divided into Transmission Chain , Lifting Chain and Traction Chain. Lifting chains and traction chains are used in lifting and transportation machinery. Transmission chains are widely used in general mechanical transmission. This chapter only introduces transmission chains. The transmission chain can be divided into roller chain and toothed chain.
The chain drive is composed of a chain and a sprocket mounted on a parallel shaft. The characteristics of the motion and power chain transmission are transmitted through the continuous engagement of the chain and sprocket teeth:
1. Compared with belt transmission, there is no elastic sliding, which can maintain an accurate average transmission ratio and high transmission efficiency; the chain does not require large tension, so the load on the shaft and bearing is small; it will not slip and the transmission is reliable , Strong overload capacity, can work well under low speed and heavy load.
2. Compared with gear transmission, it can have a larger center distance, can work in high temperature environment and dusty environment, and the cost is lower.
