As a very important equipment in industrial production, conveyor chain will directly affect the whole production progress. Once the conveyor chain breaks down in use, production will be stopped. Therefore, in order to reduce the production cost of the enterprise, it must be carefully selected and compared when purchasing. The following will help you judge the quality of industrial conveyor chains.
How to judge the quality of industrial chain
1. Judge the quality of the chain by observing the appearance of the chain
The appearance can be observed mainly from the aspects of whether the chain is deformed, corroded, whether the pins, rollers and other components operate normally and whether they are worn. In addition, if the industrial chain will produce abnormal noise or vibration during use, there is a problem with the chain.
2. The length of the chain can be determined by measurement
Before measuring the industrial conveyor chain, clean it first, and then surround the chain to be measured on the two sprockets, so as to do better. In the process of measurement, it is necessary to bear a certain load on the stainless steel chain to make the chain have good tension. When the chain is used in the sprocket, ensure that it has good tooth coordination, and measure the center distance between the two sprockets.
3. The quality of the chain can be judged by measuring the elongation of the chain
Stop the measurement by applying a certain tensile tension to the industrial conveyor chain. In order to solve the gap on the chain and ensure that the measurement error is small, we should stop measuring at the most appropriate position according to the actual situation, and then measure the extreme elongation value.
At the same time, you can also ask the other party some questions and judge whether the other party is professional by answering
How do you ensure the consistency of raw materials?
Inconsistent raw materials will prevent stamping and stamping tools from maintaining accurate tolerances and will not harden at the same rate during heat treatment. Problems will occur during assembly, and the weakest part of the chain will fail first during use
How do you ensure consistent tool and component tolerances?
Even if the raw materials have the same quality, if the stamping tool does not meet the good standard, it will produce inconsistent and inaccurate parts, and the wear speed will be much faster. Components produced with good tools and machined to strict tolerances will have the largest bearing area and the closest fit during assembly, ensuring minimum wear and long service life.
How do you optimize the heat treatment process for different products?
Ensure that the heat treatment is optimized for each product to form the correct hardness depth so that the chain can withstand the impact load. If a component becomes completely hardened and brittle, it will be prone to fracture and premature failure.
