Sprockets are the rotating component that meshes with the chain in a chain drive or conveyor. Sprockets guide the chain while transmitting motion between it and the axle. In a chain drive, the motion of the sprocket is transmitted through the chain’s rollers, pins and links to the chain or to another sprocket. The compatibility of the chain and sprocket is essential for ensuring the healthy operation and service life of the conveyor or drive.
When choosing a sprocket, you need to know the type of chain and the required tooth count. If you want to have the sprocket machined, you will also need the mounting.
We supply sprockets for all the chains we sell. We also offer made-to-order sprockets. Contact our sales team for more information!
