Double-toothed sprockets can be found either completely or in half tooth steps. Complete tooth actions are double-toothed to ensure that only a part of the the teeth is used effectively. The benefit is that when the chain is usually exchanged the so far unutilised the teeth can be used after that, and the sprockets can stay in the system.
In order to raise the life cycle of a chain drive a lot more, sprockets can be manufactured with half tooth steps. With every rotation the chain joints move one tooth ahead in the meshing. This reduces the put on of the chain and the tooth edges. This kind of planetary gearbox toothing is frequently used when, because of the respective design, just minor deflections could be realised.
Our sprockets and plate sprockets are made of C 45, stainless, and special materials with a material power of between 500 N/mm² and 600 N/mm². Aside from hardened toothing, we also supply surface area treated types.
