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 on one side 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 set 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 hub and bore possess 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 assist in preventing slipping and binding to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It meets International Corporation for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This single strand roller chain sprocket is usually suitable for use in a broad range of applications including light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle functions, including automobile transmission systems, structure and agricultural apparatus, 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 distance from the peak of 1 tooth to another is named 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 one’s teeth of the sprocket. The alignment of the chain with the sprocket’s pitch stops the chain from slipping so that no power is usually lost. In the heart of the sprocket may be the bore (hole) for sliding the sprocket onto a shaft, and a bushing or bearing is definitely often suited to the sprocket’s hub to customized-match the sprocket onto a shaft to hold it firmly in place. A hub is usually a protruding, elevated lip encircling the bore of the sprocket. Sprockets with hubs on both sides are Type C, sprockets with hubs on one side 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 large 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 the drive power of an engine must be transferred into movement, such as in motor vehicles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining devices, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, amongst others.
