One strand sprocket with a single set of teeth around the circumference for applications where 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 on one part to accommodate numerous kinds of bushings to greatly help prevent sprocket from slipping on the shaft
Sprocket teeth assist in preventing slipping and binding in order to avoid power loss in assemblies
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 really is a sort B sprocket with a hub projection encircling the bore using one side, and both hub and bore have Quick-Disconnect (QD) fittings for inserting and locking into place different QD bushings based on the diameter of the shaft. The teeth of the sprocket help prevent slipping and binding in order to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It fulfills International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This single strand roller chain sprocket is usually suitable for use in a broad range of applications involving light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle operations, including automobile transmission systems, construction and agricultural tools, conveyors, and factory production 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 often measured in 1/8-” increments. The sprocket transfers power and motion 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 usually lost. In the center of the sprocket may be the bore (hole) for sliding the sprocket onto a shaft, and a bushing or bearing is often fitted to the sprocket’s hub to custom-fit the sprocket onto a shaft to carry it firmly in place. A hub can be a protruding, elevated lip encircling the bore of the sprocket. Sprockets with hubs on both sides are Type C, sprockets with hubs on one aspect are Type B, and sprockets with no hubs are Type A sprockets. For applications requiring sprockets to be 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 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 tools, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, amongst others.
