Idler Sprockets Online

A flat hubless sprocket with a sealed bearing that allows the sprocket to revolve freely is known as an idler sprocket or an idler wheel. To generate separation between components on a shaft, the bearings utilized in our idler sprockets have a broad inner race. Idlers are often installed in a fixed location on a fixed shaft or fastened to a tensioned arm in order to prevent them from moving.

Why Use The Idler Sprockets?

Long lengths of the chain should be used in conjunction with idler sprockets in order to compensate for any sag in the chain. It is also necessary to use an idler sprocket in the case of a motor that is constructed so that the chain may be routed in numerous directions throughout the machine.
