Roller chains DIN 8187, 8188

Roller chains have a wide application range and are therefore frequently used in engine, machine and plant construction, not merely as drive and gear chains, but also as lantern gears, hoisting and conveyor chains as well as in special applications with different attachments for transport and conveyance purposes. With suitable attachment parts, roller chains offer special functionalities and thus a large application variety.

The advantages of roller chains:

Wide application range as drive, conveyor and hoisting chains
A variety of different functions by using attachments on special chains
Robustness to temperature influences and soiling
Positive locking transmission without slip
Cost effectiveness
Excellent application range through different chain sizes and use as simplex and multiplex roller chains
Multiple transmission ratios
Long shaft distances possible, e.g. for conveying systems
Life cycle limits indicated by chain elongation
Problem-free shortening and lengthening of chains
Drive on either side possible
No pre-tensioning required, therefore no static bearing loads
Resistance to fire
