Product description
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 using one side, and both 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 in order to avoid power reduction in assemblies. It meets International Corporation for Standardization (ISO) 9001 for quality assurance. This one strand roller chain sprocket is usually ideal for use in a broad range of applications including light to moderate loads and ongoing, high-cycle functions, including vehicle transmission systems, construction and agricultural equipment, 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 another is named the pitch, and is often measured in 1/8-inch increments. The sprocket transfers power and motion by a roller chain that’s threaded over the teeth of the sprocket. The alignment of the chain with the sprocket’s pitch stops the chain from slipping to ensure 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 usually often suited to the sprocket’s hub to custom made-fit the sprocket onto a shaft to hold it firmly set up. 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 side 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 huge enough to fit 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 selection of applications where the drive power of an engine must be transferred into motion, such as in motor vehicles, conveyors, escalators, agricultural, forestry and mining devices, aeronautics, robotics and space exploration, among others.

U.S. Tsubaki Power Tranny manufactures a variety of chains, sprockets, and additional power transmission parts that meet International Company for Standardization (ISO) standards for quality assurance. The business, founded in 1917, is usually headquartered in Wheeling, IL.
