Get ready. We're gearing up for our upcoming events.
What is a sprocket? You may be hearing this term "sprocket" and wondering, what even is that? It's okay. You're not alone. I'm here to tell you so you're prepared for our next event.
Here are the basics of a literal sprocket:
- Rotating parts with teeth that are used in conjunction with a chain and at least one other sprocket to transmit torque (measure of the turning force)
- Can be used to change speed, torque, or original direction of a motor
- All of the sprockets should be on parallel shafts with their corresponding teeth on the same plane in order for sprockets and the chain to work effectively
