Double-toothed sprockets are offered either planetary gearbox completely or in half tooth steps. Complete tooth techniques are double-toothed to ensure that only a part of the the teeth is used effectively. The advantage is that whenever the chain is exchanged the so far unutilised teeth can be used then, and the sprockets can stay in the system.
In order to increase the life cycle of a chain drive even more, sprockets can be manufactured with half tooth steps. With every rotation the chain joints move one tooth forward in the meshing. This decreases the wear of the chain and the tooth edges. This kind of toothing is frequently used when, due to the respective design, only minor deflections could be realised.
Our sprockets and plate sprockets are made from C 45, stainless steel, and special components with a material power of between 500 N/mm² and 600 N/mm². Aside from hardened toothing, we also supply surface area treated types.
