A Smarter Approach to Identifying Sprocket Wear

Failure to detect sprocket tooth wear can be costly and ultimately result in failure of your entire chain roller system. The Tsubaki Smart Tooth® Sprocket can eliminate the guesswork by helping you easily identify the need for drive system maintenance before failure occurs. Smart Tooth® sprockets have patented Wear Indicator Pins that provide visual indication if your sprocket is within allowable wear tolerance or needs to be replaced. Now, you can eliminate the guesswork associated with worn sprockets and schedule maintenance before critical component failure occurs to reduce down time and save money.

1 Chain & Sprocket Systems and Maintenance (June 2019)

Chain and sprocket drives of one form or another have been driving machines and conveying materials for over a thousand years. The chain manufacturing industry has developed numerous types and sizes of drive chains. Although it is a mature form of power transmission, there are still many industrial applications for which drive chain is suited. It is economical, resistant to shock loads, easy to install, has the ability to transmit high torque, operates in hostile environments, and is efficient. Chain and sprocket drives are highly engineered and manufactured within close tolerances.

The technology continues to evolve in chain- and belt-driven systems

5 Chains and Belts Play to Their Strengths (December 2015)

As with just about everything else in the manufacturing world — and all which that universe entails — it depends. After all, that’s why the art of manufacturing is a process — not a one-system-fits-all discipline. Yes, once that process has been properly designed and correctly implemented for a given manufacturing production need, it may well run like the astest, smoothest cookie-cutter-type operation ever devised.

6 Total System Efficiency (February 2010)

15 This Tattoo Machine is Off the Chain (August 2015)

Groan inducing, yes — but truer than the blue-soaked dermis layer of infamous ink fiend The Enigma (if you’re not familiar with the tattoo/sideshow icon, he’s basically an R-rated version of Papa Smurf who eats fire and twirls chainsaws). Though other altered individuals obviously operate on a much less extreme plane of body modification, there seems to be a definite link between the ink and the irregular.
