One strand sprocket with one set of teeth around the circumference for applications in which a single chain may support the torque and load
Pitch of 3/4 inch for size 60 chains
Sprocket bore and hub with QD fittings for inserting and locking bushings into place
Type B sprocket with a hub projection on one aspect to accommodate numerous kinds of bushings to greatly help prevent sprocket from slipping on the shaft
Sprocket teeth help prevent slipping and binding in order to avoid power loss in assemblies
This Tsubaki roller chain sprocket includes a 3/4-inch pitch, fits size 60 chains, and is single strand with one group of teeth around its circumference for use with single strand chains. It really is a Type B sprocket with a hub projection encircling the bore on one side, and both hub and bore have Quick-Disconnect (QD) fittings for inserting and locking into place different QD bushings depending on the diameter of the shaft. The teeth of the sprocket assist in preventing slipping and binding in order to avoid power loss in assemblies. It satisfies International Company for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This one strand roller chain sprocket is ideal for use in a broad range of applications involving light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle operations, including vehicle transmission systems, building and agricultural products, conveyors, and factory production and assembly lines, amongst others.
A roller chain sprocket is a thin wheel with deep, uniformly spaced the teeth ringing its circumference. The distance from the peak of one tooth to another is called the pitch, and is often measured in 1/8-inch increments. The sprocket transfers power and movement by a roller chain that is threaded over the teeth of the sprocket. The alignment of the chain with the sprocket’s pitch helps prevent the chain from slipping to ensure that no power is definitely lost. In the center of the sprocket is the bore (hole) for sliding the sprocket onto a shaft, and a bushing or bearing is often fitted to the sprocket’s hub to custom-fit the sprocket onto a shaft to carry it firmly set up. A hub is certainly a protruding, raised lip encircling the bore of the sprocket. Sprockets with hubs on both sides are Type C, sprockets with hubs using one aspect are Type B, and sprockets with no hubs are Type A sprockets. For applications requiring sprockets to be swapped onto shafts of different diameters, a sprocket with a bore huge enough to fit all shafts can be used, with the gap between your bore and shaft closed with a bushing or bearing. Roller chain sprockets are used in a broad range of applications where the drive power of an engine needs to be transferred into motion, such as in motor vehicles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining gear, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, amongst others.
