One strand sprocket with a single set of teeth around the circumference for applications where a single chain can 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 side to accommodate various types 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 sort B sprocket with a hub projection encircling the bore on one side, and both hub and bore possess Quick-Disconnect (QD) fittings for inserting and locking into place different QD bushings based on the diameter of the shaft. The teeth of the sprocket assist in preventing slipping and binding to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It meets International Corporation for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This one strand roller chain sprocket can be 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 products, conveyors, and factory manufacturing and assembly lines, among others.
A roller chain sprocket is a thin wheel with deep, uniformly spaced teeth ringing its circumference. The length from the peak of 1 tooth to another is called the pitch, and is commonly measured in 1/8-in . increments. The sprocket transfers power and motion by a roller chain that’s threaded over the teeth of the sprocket. The alignment of the chain with the sprocket’s pitch stops the chain from slipping to ensure that no power is usually lost. In the center of the sprocket may be the bore (hole) for sliding the sprocket onto a shaft, and a bushing or bearing is usually often fitted to the sprocket’s hub to custom-match the sprocket onto a shaft to carry it firmly in place. A hub is definitely a protruding, raised lip encircling the bore of the sprocket. Sprockets with hubs on both sides are Type C, sprockets with hubs using one part are Type B, and sprockets without 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 fit all shafts can be used, with the gap between the bore and shaft closed with a bushing or bearing. Roller chain sprockets are found in a broad range of applications where the drive power of an engine needs to be transferred into movement, such as in automobiles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining equipment, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, among others.
U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmitting manufactures a number of chains, sprockets, and various other power transmission elements that meet International Business for Standardization (ISO) specifications for quality assurance. The business, founded in 1917, can be headquartered in Wheeling, IL.
