The HKK carbon steel spring clip link for use with single strand roller chains is suitable for a broad range of operational environments, including farm equipment, paper mills, and mining. The link is manufactured with solid rollers and bushings for strength and durability. Its cold-forged solid construction minimizes elongation and wear caused by friction, thereby extending the life of the link.
HKK’s solid roller and bushing manufacturing process minimizes distortion under heavy loads and helps prevent foreign material from accumulating under the rollers, minimizing downtime and replacement costs. Its chain’s bushings, rollers, and link plates are shot peened to reduce fatigue and resist adverse environmental conditions caused by temperature, dust, and moisture.
The HKK single strand carbon steel spring clip connecting link absorbs shock and vibration, protecting other machine components. It has a transmission drive efficiency rating of 98 percent and meets American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B29.1 standard, making it dimensionally interchangeable with other ANSI chains.
Roller chains are commonly used as a power transmission component and are composed of four parts: plate, roller, bushing, and pin. A series of cylindrical rollers are held together by side links, which fit together into a toothed wheel called a sprocket. Connecting links are used to join the two ends of the chain together to form a loop. Roller chains range from simple, mechanical drives such as bicycle chains, to complex power transmission products that drive conveyors and other industrial machinery, such as printing presses and farm equipment.
HKK Chain manufactures roller chain for use in a variety of industries, including agriculture, mining, and construction. The company, founded in 1916 and headquartered in Pine Brook, NJ, makes its products in a company-owned facility in Tokyo.
