Hollow Pin Chain

Hollow pin chain refers to a specific type of roller chain that features hollow pins instead of solid pins found in traditional roller chains. A roller chain is a type of mechanical transmission chain commonly used in various industrial applications to transmit power between two rotating shafts.

The hollow pins in a hollow pin chain are essentially cylindrical tubes with open ends. These pins are designed to engage with the chain sprockets and carry the load as the chain moves. The hollow pins provide several advantages over solid pins in certain applications:

Weight reduction

Hollow pin chains are typically lighter than standard roller chains due to the hollow construction of the pins. This weight reduction can be beneficial in applications where minimizing the overall weight of the chain is important, such as in conveyor systems or lightweight machinery.


The hollow pins offer additional functionality by providing a space where other components or accessories can be inserted or attached. This allows for customization and flexibility in various applications. For example, attachments such as extended pins, extended plates, or specialized fittings can be inserted into the hollow pins to accommodate specific needs.

Lubrication Access

The hollow pins provide an access point for lubrication, allowing lubricant to be applied directly to the bearing surfaces inside the pins. This helps to reduce friction and wear, leading to improved chain performance and longevity.

The selection of high-quality materials is crucial, ensuring strength, durability, and resistance to wear and corrosion. Cutting and forming processes are executed with precision, followed by heat treatment to enhance mechanical properties. Our chains undergo precision machining for accurate dimensions and smooth finishes. Surface coatings, such as zinc plating or specialized options, are applied to improve corrosion resistance. Throughout the process, our quality control team conducts stringent inspections and tests to maintain exceptional standards. This commitment to precision manufacturing allows us to deliver hollow pin chains renowned for their reliability, durability, and superior performance in demanding industrial applications.

Hollow Pin Chain Sprockets

Hollow pin chain sprockets are specialized components used in chain drive systems. Unlike standard chain sprockets, these sprockets feature a unique design that incorporates hollow pins. The sprocket teeth are spaced evenly around the circumference, and the hollow pins are inserted through the center of each tooth. This design allows the chain to engage with the sprocket and transmit power effectively. Hollow pin chain sprockets are commonly used in applications where easy assembly and disassembly of the chain are required, such as conveyor systems or machinery that frequently requires maintenance or component replacement. The hollow pins provide accessibility for quick and convenient chain installation or removal without the need to disassemble the entire drive system. Additionally, hollow pin chain sprockets are known for their durability and resistance to wear, ensuring long-lasting performance in demanding environments.
