New Hyde Park, New York - A new series of ultra miniature inch and metric 3.117mm pitch molded chain drives from Stock Drive Products are designed for use where limited space and weight factors are important: such as servo drives to stylus or pen carriages in recorders and X-Y plotters, chart roll drives and counter drives. They are used in communication equipment, business machines, cameras and other electronic or electro-mechanical devices.
Made of pre-lubricated, non-magnetic black acetal, these drives, identified as the A 6M 7M12 series, are designed to operate over a wide range of temperatures from -40°C to +121°C. The chain features a unit-link design that eliminates the need for a master link. Each unit-link measures 2.08mm high and 4.12mm wide. A length of 321 links snapped together will equal 1 meter and a length of 5 meters of chain weighs only 0.031kg. Chain operating speeds of up to 5.1 meters per second, around smaller 8-tooth sprockets, and maximum operating loads of up to 0.9 Kg. of tension are recommended.
