Single strand sprocket with 1 set 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 part to accommodate various types of bushings to 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 is a Type B sprocket with a hub projection encircling the bore on one side, and both the hub and bore have Quick-Disconnect (QD) fittings for inserting and locking into place different QD bushings based on the diameter of the shaft. One’s teeth of the sprocket help prevent slipping and binding in order to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It satisfies International Business for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This single strand roller chain sprocket is usually suitable for use in a wide range of applications regarding light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle functions, including automobile transmission systems, construction and agricultural gear, conveyors, and factory production 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 one tooth to the next is called the pitch, and is often 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 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 customized-fit the sprocket onto a shaft to carry it firmly in place. A hub can be a protruding, raised 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 without hubs are Type A sprockets. For applications needing sprockets to be swapped onto shafts of different diameters, a sprocket with a bore large enough to match all shafts may be used, with the gap between your bore and shaft closed with a bushing or bearing. Roller chain sprockets are used in a broad range of applications where in fact the drive power of an engine must be transferred into motion, such as in automobiles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining apparatus, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, among others.
