ISO Roller Chain Sprockets (189 suppliers)

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.

Precision locknuts are used to secure bearings, gears, and other power transmission products to shafts and spindles.

Precision Shafting (80 suppliers)

Precision shafting provides the highest degree of overall accuracy, concentricity, straightness and surface perfection attainable in commercial practice.

Ratchets and Pawls (27 suppliers)

Ratchets and pawls are mechanical gearing used to transmit intermittent rotary motion. They permit a shaft to rotate in one direction, but not in the opposite one.
