A sprocket is also a cog-type sprocket wheel, which is used to accurately mesh with the pitch chain ring or the pitch on the cable. It belongs to a solid or spoked type. Gears that mesh with the chain to transfer motion forward.


Because of its own characteristics, sprocket wheels are widely used in chemical industry, textile industry, food processing and transportation industry, instrumentation industry, petrochemical industry and other mechanical transmission.


The timing belt pulley is made of steel, aluminum alloy, cast iron, brass and other materials. The surface has been treated with natural color oxidation, blackening, galvanization, color zinc plating and high-frequency quenching, and an inner peripheral surface is provided with The teeth of the closed-end annular belt between the zigzag teeth mesh with each other, and the teeth of the timing belt and the teeth of the timing pulley mesh with each other during movement to transmit motion and power. It is widely used in various precision machinery fields such as automobile industry, printing industry, office equipment, tobacco manufacturing and medical equipment.


Differences between Industrial Sprocket and timing belt wheels:

  1. On occasions that require a large amount of force, such as low-speed heavy-load occasions, it is necessary to use a sprocket as a transmission tool because the sprocket is relatively stressed.
  2. In order to prevent the occurrence of vibration or to buffer the occasion, if the applied force does not need to be too large, it is recommended to use a synchronous belt wheel for transmission.
  3. It is generally recommended to use a synchronous belt wheel for transmission in the occasions with high noise requirements, or in the more important occasions such as the subway's shielded door.
