Solitary 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 on 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 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 set of teeth around its circumference for use with single strand chains. It is a sort 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. One’s teeth of the sprocket assist in preventing slipping and binding to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It satisfies International Company for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This one strand roller chain sprocket is usually suitable for use in a broad range of applications including light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle operations, including automobile transmission systems, structure and agricultural equipment, 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 one tooth to the next is named the pitch, and is commonly measured in 1/8-” increments. The sprocket transfers power and motion by a roller chain that’s threaded over one’s teeth of the sprocket. The alignment of the chain with the sprocket’s pitch prevents the chain from slipping so that no power can be lost. In the center 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-fit the sprocket onto a shaft to carry it firmly in place. A hub is a protruding, elevated 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 needing sprockets to become swapped onto shafts of different diameters, a sprocket with a bore huge enough to fit 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 range of applications where in fact the drive power of an engine needs to be transferred into movement, such as in automobiles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining devices, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, amongst others.
U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmitting manufactures a variety of chains, sprockets, and additional power transmission parts that meet International Firm for Standardization (ISO) criteria for quality assurance. The business, founded in 1917, is definitely headquartered in Wheeling, IL.
