Sprockets are an integral part of any drive system, with failure leading to extended downtime and possible damage to the drive chain. Tsubaki manufactures sprockets from the highest quality, heat treated steel to take on any challenges an application may present.
Resistant to shock loads and wear - and requiring minimal maintenance - Tsubaki sprockets make a perfect complement to any Tsubaki chain.
We offer roller chain sprockets, engineered sprockets and even wear indicator sprockets for maintenance notification. Chain and sprocket always work together, so it makes sense for end users to choose a single supplier for both.
Tsubaki Smart Tooth offers users the ability to identify and schedule drive system maintenance before critical component failure occurs. Strategic placement of our patented Wear Indicator pins on one or more sprocket teeth provides visual indication that a sprocket is still within the allowable wear tolerance, or that it needs to be replace. When factoring in the cost of critical drive system componenets, implementation of Tsubaki wear Indicator technolody makes sense for applications that are driven by capital equiptment, or where none-scheduled downtime is simply not acceptable.
Over time in service, the sprocket tooth profile area ia reduced due to induced load created by the chain roller. The reduction in sprocket tooth profile area creates accelerated wear on the drive chain roller, causing poor fit, alignment, and chain wraps as it relates to the tooth profile. Ultimately, chain wear accelerates at an exponential rate, resulting in loss of tension, jumped chain, drive slipping and castastrophic, failure.
Tsubaki Smart Tooth is your solution!
System performance highly depends on chain-sprocket interaction, which means your choice of sprockets can elevate your operation’s success. Make the right and easy choice with sprockets from Tsubaki.
