The History of Roller Chain
A roller chain or bush roller chain is a type of chain drive commonly employed for mechanical power transmission. It consists of several short cylindrical rollers connected by side links and driven by an engaging sprocket wheel with teeth. In 1880, Hans Renold revolutionized the roller chain by adding a bush to the traditional pin […]
