Standard chains

The standard chains of the ZMC range include products made according to the main international standards (ISO1977, DIN 8165, DIN 8167, DIN 8168, British standard 4119, ANSI / ASME B29.100), and non standard chains of common use.
Versatile and reliable, the standard chains offer the designer a wide choice of solutions for the use of conveyor chains in the various sectors. The range of ZMC standard chains covers a very wide field in terms of dimensions, mechanical characteristics and geometry. They are both metric and imperial chains, with solid, hollow, or extended pins. Standard or deep link plates with attachments are available. In most cases, an alternative with hardened plates is available to increase the breaking load and, on request, in stainless steel or zinc plated finish.
For the sake of identification and research, the traditional ZMC nomenclature is associated with the main series of standard chains:
Z series – Chains with inch pitch according to the English standard BS4119 Part4
M Series – Chains with metric pitch ISO1977, DIN 8167, DIN 8168 standards
Series C – Metric pitch chains according to DIN 8165, internationally known also as FV chains
