The escalator step chain is an important component in escalator systems. It consists of a series of interconnected metal steps that form a continuous loop. The steps are attached to the chain, which is driven by a motor, causing them to move in a cyclical motion.
The components that make up the escalator step chain generally consist of six parts:
chain plates; pins; sleeves; rollers (wheels); retaining rings; and step axles.
These six major components can be combined in different ways to form various types of escalator step chains, catering to different usage conditions.
Controlled parameters in the manufacturing process of escalator chains include:
Main controlled parameters of chain components:
.Chain plates: pitch, aperture, hole brightness, hardness, flatness.
.Pins: outer diameter, length, hardness, hardening layer.
.Sleeves: outer diameter, inner diameter, height, concentricity, hardness, hardening layer.
.Rollers: outer diameter, inner diameter, height, concentricity, hardness.
.Wheels: outer diameter, height, color, bearings.
Main controlled parameters of the chain:
.Interchangeability parameters: pitch, inner width of the inner link, roller (wheel) outer diameter, roller center distance.
.Conventional test items: tensile strength, chain length accuracy, total clearance, flexibility of rollers or wheels, flexibility of chain links, increase in rivet head size of pins, chain distortion, appearance.
