ANSI Roller Chains

  • ANSI Roller Chain

ANSI Roller Chain is the ZEXUS standard type Roller Chain that is standing on JIS B 1801.
The uniqueness includes Solid Bushing & Roller having no seam which creates outstanding character against initial elongation and wear.

Fundamental Structure


Outstanding longer wear life

Conventional split bushings deform into a barrel shape when side plates are pressed on, leaving only two-point contact area. ZEXUS standard type Roller Chain has extremely cylindrical inside and outside bushing walls resulting in full contact to disperse bearing pressure. Less pressure ensures excellent wear resistance.


Up to 2-3 times longer wear life over curled bushings

The curled, split bushings have a seam where tiny space allows lubricant leakage resulting in shorter wear life. Solid Bushing and Roller have no seam resulting in lower bearing pressure allowing the bushings to retain lubrication resulting in much longer wear life.


Reliable performance

Solid Bushing and Roller are cold-forged from steel rod. Cold-forming process also works with the molecular structure of the steel running lengthwise in the bushings thereby increasing fatigue strength as well as preventing bushings from breakage, ZEXUS standard type Roller Chain improves performance of transmission with minimizing elongation for long period of time.
