Rolon Chain Rolon chain
Rolon chain is designed and manufactured to exacting standards employing leading edge technology, material selection, tooling, heat treatment and manufacturing methods.
Heat treatment: In Rolon chain, pins and bushes are provided with optimum surface hardness through skilled use of heat treatment for long durability.
Shot peened parts: All plates and rollers are shot peened to improve fatigue life. Shot peening induces compressive forces in these parts and therefore offers high resistance against fatigue and impact loading.
Preloading of the chain: Rolon chain is preloaded in special fixtures. This enhances resistance against initial elongation and fatigue. All chains are subject to precise length control.
Greater fatigue and tensile strength: the wider waist of Rolon link plates, combined with optimum press fitted bushes and pins, ensures greater fatigue strength.
Longer wear life: Wear life also depends upon the perfect roundness of the cylindrical parts like pins and bushes. Rolon bushings are curl formed from in-house manufactured specially processed steel to achieve complete round shape with uniform wall thickness. Pins are produced in special purpose machines and processed suitably to achieve greater roundness.
