  • The Basics of Roller Chain Sprockets
    in applications where the drive chain may be reversed in direction and the idler sprocket is mounted to the outside of the chain to prevent whipping. See Fig. 11 for an illustration of a ball-bearing idler sprocket and bronze bushing. ROI from sprocket inspection. Applying new chain to worn sprockets

  • Development of the Modern Day Chain
    The concept of chain has been with us for many years. Early chains discovered in c. 2500 BC were for decorative purposes rather than for power transmission. These chains were used to draw a bucket of water out of a well. Sketches discovered as recently as 1965, produced by Leonardo da Vinci
  • Engineering Tools
    pitch American Roller Chain Sprocket, it is often more convenient to measure with a standard caliper using the caliper dimension as opposed to measuring over wires or rollers. This calculator compensates for odd numbers of teeth and gives exact dimensions with tolerance based on pitch and number
  • Is Your Warranty Lean?
    replacement due to splice fatigue failure. Belt replacement due to knurl abrasion. Belt mis-tracking or slipping due to knurl contamination, requiring belt removal to clean knurl. Periodic reducer oil changes. Routine lubrication of drive chain and sprockets. Routine bearing lubrication. Conveyor
  • Human-Like Bipedal Walking Robot
    interface. "You want everything to move exactly as the mathematics and control software dictates, " Aaron said. The assembly allowed for the high torque motor to operate smoothly at slow speeds. The team installed larger sprockets and a chain for each of the six joints. The idea was that the chain would
