Hi All, Can anybody help with desi

Hi All,
Can anybody help with design formula for conveyor block chain sprockets ie standard conveyor chain outer links then solid block link then standard conveyor chain outer links etc etc. Am looking for design info on tooth profile. Seem pretty scarce on the web. Thank You

RE: Hi All, Can anybody help with desi

This is a fairly good reference

Most of the companies which make chain and sprockets are represented on the ASME chain/sprocket committees, so it is not surprising that there are a few missing bits of information in the standards. You can come up with the necessary formulas to generate tooth geometry, if you look hard enough. You may be better off just going to a sprocket manufacturer and buying sprockets to suit your needs, however.

Hi dvd,
Thanks for your post. My company manufactures sprockets and gears, but first time I have been asked to manufacture block chain sprockets. I just thought that these formula would be much more readily sourced off the net, but alas thats not the case.
