ABOUT THIS CATEGORY
Also known as sprocket-wheels, sprockets are mechanical wheels with small notches or teeth that is designed to interlock with a chain. When used in conjunction with a roller chain, they transmit linear motion between shafts as best exemplified by a conveyor belt. Pilot bore sprockets, or rough stock bore sprockets, have a cylindrical protrusion that is rebored to match the customer’s shaft size. They are commonly used in industrial machineries and bicycles. Taper lock sprockets have a split through the taper and flange to affix a taper lock bushing with set screws. This creates a true clamp fit on the shaft and offers great flexibility. Plate wheel sprockets on the other hand are flat sprockets with a straight “pilot bore” hole in the middle. We offer a wide range of sprocket sizes, pitch, number of teeth and strand options to choose from.
