1. Chain Pin Gears
For linear drive and large radius rotary drives, a chain gear drive is used by a drive source (motor, etc.) through a reducer. Chains require a lot of space, and gears need precision machining, which can lead to high costs and other issues. Pin Gears are perfect in these situations.
An attachment chain is wound around the outside of a drum in place of a gear drive wheel, and a specially machined sprocket is used for the pinion gear. For linear drives, the attachment chain is attached linearly and used in place of a rack.

Pin Gear Drive Types
Tsubaki offers linear, inner rotary, and outer rotary pin gear drives.
2. Sprockets for Chain Type Pin Gears
Pin gear sprockets engage chains that differ structurally to normal winding/hanging drive chains, so special teeth profiles are required.
Contact a Tsubaki representative and let us design the perfect tooth profile for your application.
