Sprocket and Gear Teeth Heat Treating
Heat treating teeth doubles the life of a sprocket and gear. Typically the
Rockwell hardness (Rc) of the teeth ranges from 30-63 Rc depending on the type of steel.
- Sprockets - The part's outside diameter is almost unlimited. Any normal sprocket
tooth can be hardened.
- Gears - The gear must be made from medium carbon / direct hardening steel.
