Boss and shaft fitting options, including; weldable hubs, taper lock bushes, cone clamps, single sided/central/offset bosses, boring and keying, Gibb head keyways, bearings and counter bores etc.
There is a range of options available in order to lock sprockets on to conveyor shafts. These options include, but are not limited to, weld able hubs and taper lock bushes, cone clamps, single sided or central bosses, offset bosses, standard bore and keys with grub screws, Gibb head keyways, bearings with retaining circlips, counter bores, plain bores, splined etc.
We are able to supply 'like for like' fittings, or advise on the most suitable fitting method for the application. For a four sprocket twin strand conveyor the most typical arrangement would require 3 off sprockets with a standard bore and key, grub screws and a 1 off plain bored on to the tail shaft, to take up any variation in overall chain length (this is an example only).
