FB roller chain has a long established reputation for production quality and reliability. Available from stock this high performance chain has many integral features designed to provide dependable service under the toughest operating conditions.
As a leading quality brand, FB roller chain offers 40% longer chain life, 30% less elongation and high tensile strength compared with inferior products.
Seam Oriented Bushes
The bush is positioned with the seam located towards the centre of the link plate and away from the working load. This feature maximises the pin bearing area prolonging service life.
Holes located on the inner side of the bushes opposite to the bearing area, function as a reservoir for extra lubricant. This design reduces chain wear and extends chain life.
FB roller chain features rollers and link plates fortified against fatigue by shot peening. This additional operation creates beneficial residual compressive stress on the surface of the component increasing the fatigue strength.
Double Punched Link Plates
The process of re-punching the plate holes corrects the taper normally found following the conventional blanking. The double punched hole is accurate and parallel improving component fit and significantly increasing the fatigue strength.
All FB roller chain is pre-loaded following final assembly. This process ensures the correct seating of component parts and greatly reduces initial chain elongation.
FB Chain supplies the smallest transmission chain in the world – a 1/8" pitch chain used extensively in the medical and micro engineering industries. Readily available, a full range of BS and ANSI roller chains are supplied from stock in standard or cut lengths. FB Chain’s superb customer service levels ensure requirements are satisfied economically and efficiently.
Many special application and self-lubricating chains are available from stock. The range includes plastic and stainless steel chains as well as chain with special coatings and lubricants for particular applications or aggressive environments.
Roller chain, fitted with attachments, is available on short lead times. Adapted chain to any design can be produced to order and full in-house engineering design facilities are available.
