One strand sprocket with one 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 aspect to accommodate various types of bushings to help prevent sprocket from slipping on the shaft
Sprocket teeth help prevent slipping and binding 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 is a Type B sprocket with a hub projection encircling the bore on 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 to avoid power loss in assemblies. It satisfies International Company for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This single strand roller chain sprocket is certainly suitable for use in a wide range of applications including light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle operations, including automobile transmission systems, building and agricultural products, conveyors, and factory manufacturing and assembly lines, amongst others.
A roller chain sprocket is a thin wheel with deep, uniformly spaced teeth ringing its circumference. The distance from the peak of 1 tooth to the next is called the pitch, and is commonly measured in 1/8-inch increments. The sprocket transfers power and movement by a roller chain that’s 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 usually 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 fitted to the sprocket’s hub to custom-fit the sprocket onto a shaft to hold it firmly in place. 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 on one part 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 huge enough to match 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 selection of applications where in fact 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, among others.
U.S. Tsubaki Power Tranny manufactures a number of chains, sprockets, and other power transmission elements that meet International Corporation for Standardization (ISO) requirements for quality assurance. The company, founded in 1917, is usually headquartered in Wheeling, IL.
