The introduction of sprocket

- Apr 03, 2018 -

A Sprocket is a profiled wheel with teeth ,or cogs ,that mesh with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material .

Sprockets are used in bycicles , motorcycles ,cars ,tracked vehicles ,and other machinery either to transmit rotary motion between two shafts were gears are unsuitable or to impart linear motion to a track ,tape etc.perhaps the most comon form of sprocket may be found in the bicyle,in which the pedal shaft carries a large sprocket -wheel,which drives a chain ,which in turn ,drives a small sprocket on the axle of the rear wheel .Early automobiles were also largely driven by sprocket and chain mechanism ,a practice largely copied from bicycles.

Sprockets are of various designs,a maxium of efficiency being claimed for each by its originator.Sprockets typically do not have a flange .Some sprockets used with timing belts have flanges to keep the timimg belt centered.Sprockets and chains are also used for power transmission from one shaft to another where slippage is not admissible,sprocket chains being used instead of belts or ropes and sprocket-wheels instead of pulleys.They can be run at high speed and some forms of chain are so constructed as to be noiseless even at high speed .
