Power transmission components using toothed sprockets and link chain matched in size and pitch.
Roller chain sprockets engage chain drives in power transmission and conveyor systems, though sprockets can engage any perforated material. Chain drives can be highly efficient and can produce a mechanical advantage as speed reducers/increasers. Sprockets conforming to ANSI standard B 29.1 are not meant to engage roller chains of any other parameter. ANSI conforming roller chain is smaller and somewhat weaker than its European counterpart.
Belt and chain tensioners apply and maintain correct tension on power transmission drive systems.
Conveyor chain is used for material conveyance under harsh conditions, in specialty applications, or when material can be allowed to fall through gaps in the conveying surface.
Conveyor sprockets (mill sprockets, engineering class sprockets, engineered sprockets) are used in conjunction with conveyor chains or conveyor belts.
Roller chain sprockets engage chain drives in power transmission and conveyor systems, though sprockets can engage any perforated material. Chain drives can produce a mechanical advantage as speed reducers/increasers. ISO sprockets are designed to engage British Standard Chain and conform to ISO standard R606. These sprockets are not interchangable with ANSI defined sprockets.
Leaf chain is a rollerless chain that is commonly used on forklift trucks and in other material handling applications.
Roller chain is used in power transmission applications. Products are characterized by ANSI and BS/DIN standard sizes.
Silent chain or inverted-tooth chain features teeth on its links that engage the sprocket teeth. Silent chain can be wide and is used in a variety of power transmission and conveying applications.
