Belt drives including timing belts and accessory belts present a demanding challenge for bearings. Tensioners and idler rollers must provide long trouble-free operation under a wide range of speeds and the demanding engine environment. these products use advanced lubrication and sealing to ensure long and reliable service under these conditions.
Couplings are devices used to connect two shafts together and are divided into two categories: Rigid and Flexible. Both are used for the purpose of transmitting power, rigid couplings being more limited in applications as compared to flexible couplings. Rigid couplings are used where shafts are already positioned in precise lateral and angular alignment. Their design does not allow for any misalignment between shafts, but are generally able to transmit more power than flexible couplings.
A chain is used to connect two sprockets. One sprocket is the driver sprocket. The other sprocket is the driven sprocket. Motion and force can be transmitted via the chain from one sprocket to another, therefore from one shaft to another. Chains that are used to transmit motion and force from one sprocket to another are called power transmission chains.
Power Transmission sprockets come in a wide range of sizes. With a comprehensive selection available, you will never have to worry about finding the perfect sprocket size for your application. Our power transmission Sprockets are available in various hub configurations such as plate, single hub and double hub. They also come with optional taper bushes for ease of installation and removal. Sizes under 25 teeth are standard with hardened teeth for optimum sprocket life.
