Double-rowed Power-Core drive sprocket in packaging machine

In food industry applications lubrication is always an issue, so for a packaging machine we designed a composite double-rowed drive sprocket machined from Intech Power-Core™ material with a SS core that prevents abrasion on the steel chain, even at high operating speeds.

This chemical resistant sprocket is corrosion proof and ensures that no lubricant is required which could contaminate the food.

One drive sprocket is used for two different chain circuits, and this component provides an integrated solution with a cast-in stainless steel hub to securely attach both sprockets to the shaft.

Intech Power-Core™ sprockets are available with or without metal core. The material’s properties lend themselves to superior wear characteristics of the sprocket teeth. Intech Power-Core™ sprockets do not wear out the chain, reduce noise and absorb shock and vibration.
