Industrial sprocket

Sprockets are very important mechanical elements. As the most typical part used in conjunction with sprockets, chains can be explained as a number of joined (typically steel) links, flexible in only one direction and utilized to transfer power in machinery through enmeshing with the machine’s sprockets. Industrial manufacturing is among the more prevalent industries that reap the benefits of sprockets. However, additional industries include automotive, for power tranny applications; agriculture and forestry, in various types of products; film and paper, for film transportation mechanisms found in move projectors and cameras; and electronics, for pc printers and electric motors.
Sprockets are produced from a wide selection of materials: stainless, which is most effective for temperature and food processing applications; cast iron, most often used with flat wire conveyor belts; and plastics such as nylon, polyethylene and polyurethane, which allow for continuous make use of at high temperatures.
Sprockets are formed in quite similar way since gears , through cutting techniques such as hobbing, so that they are able withstand harsh and repetitive make use of. Sprocket hobbing may be the process of using a broaching machine to cut the grooves, known as teeth, into a component. Capable of slicing sprockets with different amounts and different sizes of teeth, sprocket hobbing is used to make teeth for many different kinds of sprockets. Additional machining processes are utilized, such as drilling, to be able to ensure the very best tooth and closest tolerances. Secondary provider including temperature treating and hands finishing can be used in order to provide additional power and quality. Often cut in both English and metric measurements, there are various types of sprockets available including idler, roller chain, split, timing belt and film.
Idler sprockets are accustomed to prevent whipping action and to help obtain maximum chain tension in power transmissions. Also useful in power tranny, roller chain sprockets are light-weight, durable and often used for precision equipment components. Split sprockets, however, are of help in applications requiring detachment without needing to dismantle machinery. Timing belt sprockets are also known as synchronous sprockets and provide timed, nonslip power transmitting. Film sprockets refer to the kind of sprocket used to go film through various machines by engaging with holes located along the two sides of the film strip.

If you want a non-slippage solution that can run at high speeds, look no further then Applied. We carry sprockets in a number of sizes and designs to meet your unique application needs. Shop from conveyor, engineering class, cable chain or bushed style sprockets supplemented by components like weld-on hubs and guide rings plus much more.
