Roller Chain, Machine Chain, Sprockets, Shims and Key Stocks
Roller Chains and Sprockets: Roller chain or bush roller chain is the type of chain drive most commonly used for transmission of mechanical power on many kinds of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, including conveyors, wire- and tube-drawing machines, printing presses, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. A sprocket or sprocket-wheel is a profiled wheel with teeth, cogs, or even sprockets that mesh with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material. The name 'sprocket' applies generally to any wheel upon which radial projections engage a chain passing over it. It is distinguished from a gear in that sprockets are never meshed together directly, and differs from a pulley in that sprockets have teeth and pulleys are smooth. We are offering world best heavy duty chains and Sprockets made in Germany.
Shims Stock, Machine keys and Key stock: A shim is a thin and often tapered or wedged piece of material, used to fill small gaps or spaces between objects. Shims are typically used in order to support, adjust for better fit, or provide a level surface. Shims may also be used as spacers to fill gaps between parts subject to wear. Machine keys and Key stock are demountable machine elements that are used to transmit torque from a shaft to the component. The use of a machine key and key stock prevents movement between the shaft and the component and allows force to be released without causing stress or wear on the machine. Machine keys are usually made of steel or stainless steel and plated with zinc for wear and oxidation resistance. We offer super quality Shim and Key Stocks from England and Canada.
