Two-Piece Idler Sprockets
Idler sprockets are used in a variety of power transmission applications. Lutco manufactures custom two piece idler sprockets combining stamping, machining and bearing capabilities. Lutco’s wide variety of options allows customizing in order to respond to the application demands.
Within the sizes available it has been common to use a welded assembly with a Lutco bearing. In cases where higher load or speed requires a precision bearing this can be accommodated by trapping the bearing in the assembly. In addition, if misalignment is a problem, sprockets can be hardened and riveted. With either the Lutco or precision bearing a variety of bores can be accommodated. In addition to component modification, exterior seals or metal shields resist contamination and wrapping.
Check with the factory for size and number of teeth availability in standard or extended pitch units.
