Every Ever-power Leaf Chain Pin is manufactured of specially-designed alloy steel, which is then heat-treated to improve the surface's hardness. The greatest care is taken so that the base part of the chain is malleable , which allows it to handle repeated loads. The pin is centrally polished to enhance the finish of the surface and attain a precise tolerance of the diameter. We believe that the most important possible connection can be made by ensuring that the chain ends at the links that are in the middle and is inserted inside the anchor of the leaf chain, and is secured by an anchor pin to the chain. This ensures the greatest quantity of sheer surfaces as well as the strongest tensile strength. Chain pins that are placed on the outside links on a chain leaf could be a serious cause of load carrying and safety concerns.

Leaf Pin Chains Benefits
The leaf pin chains are designed with the use of special steel that ensures maximum resistance to breakage and sudden loads. The pins are also made from special steel and have excellent resistance to bending. The diameters of the pins and plate holes are controlled closely during manufacturing. This reduces rubbing and friction, resulting in a smooth movement of the inner plates.
Leaf pin chains benefit from their compact design and superior fatigue strength. They can be used in various applications and can be found on machine tools, forklift trucks, draw bench chains, and container pallet jacks. In addition, these chains are available with alternating male and female ends and can be supplied with an even number of pitches.
Leaf Pin Chains and Sprockets
Leaf pin chains are designed for slow-moving applications. Unlike roller chains and sprockets, leaf pin chains are constructed with pins instead of bushings or rollers. These pins are press-fit into the outermost plate. They offer high strength per foot and are usually used as counterweight chains in machine tools. They require proper lubrication to achieve a reasonable service life.
Leaf pin chain sprockets are typically secured to the shaft using one or more set screws or ANSI-standard-dimensioned keyways. However, these dimensions are not universal, and it is vital that the supplier of a particular leaf pin chain understands the appropriate keyway size for the chain's application.
A leaf chain is the simplest form of steel chain and is composed of interlaced link plates and pins. Leaf chain has a much higher tensile strength than roller chains. It also offers narrower overall width and is often used for balancing and lifting applications.
The wear and tear on sprockets are caused by friction. Every rotation of the chain causes the teeth to come into contact with the chain. In some cases, this wear and tear are so severe that the sprockets are worn out. The teeth of the sprockets eventually break off and the chain will not work properly.
