The calculation is designed for a geometrical design and strength check of common chain transmissions using roller chains.
• The application solves the following tasks. • Selection of a power suitable type of chain. • Selection of an optimum transmission alternative regarding power, geometry and weight. • Calculation of geometric, strength, safety and operational parameters. • Calculation of power parameters and axis loads. • Support of 2D and 3D CAD systems.
The application works with selected CAD systems and includes corresponding databases of roller chains. The calculations use data, procedures, algorithms and data from ANSI/ASME, ACA (American Chain Association) ISO, DIN, BS and JIS.
