Idler Sprocket with ball bearing
Idler gear refers to a gear that transmits between two transmission gears that are not in contact with each other and meshes with these two gears at the same time to change the direction of rotation of the driven gear to make it the same as the driving gear. So do you know what it does? Follow the editor of Idler Sprocket with ball bearing to understand it briefly!
The main functions of the idler are to change the steering of the driven wheel, increase the transmission distance, and adjust the pressure angle. The idler is a part of the gear train that plays a transitional role. It will not change the transmission relationship. It is to make the force of the gear train more reasonable or to meet the layout of the entire transmission system. Its function is only to change the steering, but cannot change the transmission ratio. The wheelbase can be extended through the idler. The number of teeth has no effect on the value of the transmission ratio, but it will affect the steering of the last wheel. It is a wheel that does not do work and has a certain energy storage function, which is helpful to the stability of the system.
