One strand sprocket with a single group 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 using one aspect to accommodate various types of bushings to greatly help prevent sprocket from slipping on the shaft
Sprocket teeth assist in preventing slipping and binding in order to avoid power loss in assemblies
This Tsubaki roller chain sprocket has 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 is a Type B sprocket with a hub projection encircling the bore using one side, and both the hub and bore possess Quick-Disconnect (QD) fittings for inserting and locking into place different QD bushings depending on the diameter of the shaft. One’s teeth of the sprocket assist in preventing slipping and binding in order to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It fulfills International Company for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This one strand roller chain sprocket is usually ideal for use in a broad range of applications including light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle operations, including vehicle transmission systems, building and agricultural apparatus, conveyors, and factory manufacturing and assembly lines, among others.
A roller chain sprocket is a thin wheel with deep, uniformly spaced tooth ringing its circumference. The length from the peak of 1 tooth to the next 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 stops the chain from slipping so that no power is lost. In the heart of the sprocket is the bore (hole) for sliding the sprocket onto a shaft, and a bushing or bearing can be often suited to the sprocket’s hub to custom made-match the sprocket onto a shaft to carry it firmly set up. A hub is certainly a protruding, elevated lip encircling the bore of the sprocket. Sprockets with hubs on both sides are Type C, sprockets with hubs on one aspect are Type B, and sprockets with no hubs are Type A sprockets. For applications needing sprockets to become swapped onto shafts of different diameters, a sprocket with a bore large enough to match all shafts may be used, with the gap between the bore and shaft closed with a bushing or bearing. Roller chain sprockets are found in a broad selection of applications where the drive power of an engine needs to be transferred into movement, such as in motor vehicles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining devices, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, amongst others.
U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission manufactures a number of chains, sprockets, and additional power transmission components that meet International Firm for Standardization (ISO) standards for quality assurance. The business, founded in 1917, is certainly headquartered in Wheeling, IL.
