Double-toothed sprockets are offered either in full or in two tooth steps. Complete tooth steps are double-toothed so that only a part of the the teeth is used effectively. The benefit is that whenever the chain can be exchanged the so far unutilised teeth can be used then, and the sprockets can stay in the system.

In order to boost the life cycle of a chain drive a lot more, sprockets can be produced with fifty percent tooth steps. With every rotation the chain joints move one tooth ahead in the meshing. This reduces the put on of the chain and the tooth edges. This sort of toothing is often used when, due to the respective design, only minor deflections could be realised.

Our sprockets and plate sprockets are made from C 45, stainless steel, and special components with a material strength of between 500 N/mm² and 600 N/mm². Apart from hardened toothing, we also supply surface area treated types.
