Product description
This Tsubaki roller chain sprocket has 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. The teeth of the sprocket assist in preventing slipping and binding to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It meets International Business for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This solitary strand roller chain sprocket is definitely ideal for use in a broad range of applications involving light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle operations, including automobile transmission systems, building and agricultural gear, conveyors, and factory manufacturing and assembly lines, amongst others.

A roller chain sprocket is a thin wheel with deep, uniformly spaced the teeth ringing its circumference. The length from the peak of one 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 is threaded over the teeth of the sprocket. The alignment of the chain with the sprocket’s pitch helps prevent the chain from slipping so that no power is lost. In the center of the sprocket is 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 hold it firmly set up. 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 on one part are Type B, and sprockets with no hubs are Type A sprockets. For applications requiring sprockets to become swapped onto shafts of different diameters, a sprocket with a bore huge 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 used in a broad selection 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 products, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, amongst others.

U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission manufactures a number of chains, sprockets, and other power transmission components that meet International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements for quality assurance. The company, founded in 1917, is certainly headquartered in Wheeling, IL.
