What are the sprocket materials? How to select the sprocket material
Sprocket is a kind of transmission, with the use of chain. It's like a gear rack.
Sprocket commonly used material generally choose 45#. That is, ordinary 45 steel. The ordinary sprocket made of 45# material can meet the conditions of sprocket use.
Of course, some people choose 40Mn(40 mn steel) and 45Mn(45 mn steel). The sprocket made of manganese steel is a qualitative difference from the sprocket made of 45#.
Of course, the choice of sprocket material also depends on the use requirements. If the speed is low. Less tension. In the choice of sprocket material, we can choose sprocket material with high cost performance.
Stainless steel sprocket:
Sprocket commonly used stainless steel material has 201 stainless steel, 304 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel.
The most prominent one is 304 stainless steel, which can basically meet the requirement of sprocket material in terms of corrosion resistance.
Sprocket of 201 material is less resistant to corrosion than sprocket of 304 material.
The sprocket made of 316 material is mainly used in coastal cities. Sprocket made of 316 material has strong corrosion resistance to salt substance.
The material selection of sprocket is mainly based on the purpose. According to the speed, tension, environment and other factors,
