Roller chain, also known as bush roller chain, is a type of drive chain used for power transmission in industrial machineries such as tube-drawing machines and cars. They were first invented by Leornardo da Vinci around the 16th century, although it is the Hans Rehold work of the 19th century that takes the bulk of the credit. The chains
are designed with cylindrical rollers that are held together by side links. Then, they are driven by a sprocket (a toothed wheel) to form a simple yet highly reliable method of power transmission.
Most driving chains are designed to operate in clean environments such as the camshaft of internal combustion engines where dirt is limited. In such cases, minimal or no lubrication
is needed. However, when the roller chain is used in open environments where they are exposed to a lot of dirt, appropriate lubrication will be needed.
