COMPACT AND POWERFUL
In a roller chain coupling, torque is distributed across the combined mating surfaces of each of the chain and sprocket pitches, which allows the coupling to handle a high amount of torque for its size. The chain connects closely with the sprockets, for a highly compact and lightweight coupling that transmits torque with the utmost efficiency.
SAFE AND SMART
Our compact roller chain couplings are housed in an aluminum casing that clamps to the sprocket hubs and rotates with the body of the coupling without the need for bolts or other projections. The coupling chain itself is easy to install and remove using a single connecting pin, so you save on installation labor and downtime.
When working with shafts in a drive, traditional rigid couplings require extremely precise alignment between the coupled shafts. Roller chain couplings introduce much-needed flexibility with clearances both in the chain and between the chain and sprocket teeth. With this added mobility, even with minor misalignment, chain couplings can operate in a smooth and responsive manner, reducing the potential for overheating and wear common in more rigid coupling designs. The operation of roller chain couplings is less affected by unavoidable shaft expansion and contraction. The flexibility and easy alignment of the drive shafts, when using chain couplings, will save time and money on equipment repairs and replacements.
Tsubaki’s exclusive roller chain coupling design is engineered to keep production lines up and running. Our specialized dual-strand roller chain features a single-pin connector for exceptionally easy installation. We use only the highest quality materials for our precision hardened sprockets and dual set-screws to lock your system in place. The ease of installation, coupled with the exceptional strength of the roller chain and sprocket components, make Tsubaki’s roller chain couplings ideal for almost any power transmission application.
