Roller Chain

Roller chains are made up of a succession of cylindrical rollers that are clasped together by links on the side. A sprocket helps it operate. Roller chains are an effective and dependable method by which power transmission takes place.
⚙️
Roller chain sizes are determined by 3 primary dimensions:
Pitch: The distance between links, as measured from the center of the roller pin on one link to the center of the roller pin on the next link.
Inside Width: Distance between the innermost sideplates.
Roller Diameter: Measure the diameter of the individual roller.
