Shanghai Metal Corporation is a leading Stud Link Chain manufacturer and supplier. According to the structure of the link, the anchor chain can be divided into two types: a Stud Chain and a Studless Chain. The link chain of the chain has a crosspiece. When the size and material are the same, the strength of the chain is larger than that of the unchained chain, the deformation is small, and it is not easy to twist when stacked, which is widely used in modern large and medium-sized ships. The chain of the chainless chain has no crosspiece and is only used for small vessels. The code stipulates that when the diameter of the anchor chain equipped as required does not exceed 17 mm, it can be replaced by a non-stop anchor chain with the same test load or a wire rope or fiber rope with the same breaking load.

Originally studs were added to the chain to stiffen the links preventing them from severely deforming when overloaded. They have the added advantage in that they prevent the chain from knotting up when twisted, thus avoiding problems when chain is retrieved with a windlass.
We can also provide grade 1, 2 and 3 open link chain; marine anchor: Hall anchor, Japan Stockless Anchor, U.S.N Stockless Anchor and other marine castings, like Panama Chock, Fairlead Roller, and so on. With ISO: 9001 Quality Management System, SMC can offer you best quality as well as services.
