A heavy-duty, benchtop fixture allowing for realistic training in industrial chain drive systems.

Welded aluminum driver and driven components, actual industrial hardware and a variety of hands-on exercises combine to provide a complete introduction to chain nomenclature, assembly, disassembly, alignment and maintenance. The use of straight, keyed-bore, taper-bore, taper-lock and QD bushings is also addressed.

Packaged with several chain types, connecting links, attachment chain samples, sprockets, bushings, and applicable tools, this training system offers a complete training experience in this fundamental industrial drive technology. Optional components allow for training related to heavy-series, Morse HV chain, and silent chain.
7-Gauge, formed-steel baseplate with provision for tabletop mounting.
Welded aluminum motor and driven elements.
Ground steel shafting.
Handwheel.
Multiple motor positions, allowing for establishment of several different chain lengths.
Provision for motor element jacking.
Heavy-duty, flanged bearings allowing for variation of misalignment.
Chain, including 40 series standard, double pitch and single pitch double strand chain.
Connecting links, including cotter pin, spring clip and offset types.
Idler bracket assembly.
Six, mixed diameter sprockets, with provision for keyed, taper-bore, taper-lock and QD hubs.
All components can be mounted on related bench and workstation products.
Packaging for shipment via motor freight.
