Sprocket A sprocket is a wheel-like toothed component designed to mesh with a chain or a timing belt. It is used in power transmission systems to transfer rotational motion between shafts with accurate synchronization. The teeth on the sprocket engage with the links or teeth of the chain or timing belt, allowing for efficient power transmission and motion control.

Q: Do sprockets require lubrication?
Sprockets do not require lubrication, but the chains or timing belts they mesh with may need proper lubrication for smooth operation and reduced wear
Q: Can I use any sprocket with any chain or timing belt?
No, it is essential to use sprockets that match the pitch of the chain or timing belt. Mismatched sprockets can lead to poor engagement and synchronization, resulting in reduced power transmission efficiency and premature wear.
