Drive Roller Chains

Roller chains are the most common type of drive chains. They are standardized according to ISO 606 (ČSN 02 3311, DIN 8187), i.e. chains of the European B-series, or according to ISO 606 (DIN 8188), i.e. chains of the US A-series, also known as ASA or ANSI.

The chains consist of outer links with pins and inner links with bushes on which rotating rollers are mounted. The chains are made of steel. The exact grade of steel, production method and heat treatment of the steel of the individual parts vary by chain type, size and manufacturer.

The standard design of drive roller chains can be simplex, duplex or triplex.
