Chain Drive Training System

Model: 223-000

DAC Worldwide’s Chain Drive Training System (223-000) is a heavy-duty learning aide that allows for in-depth training in industrial chain drives, heavy/silent chains, and sprocket set usage. Through the use of a welded aluminum driver and actual industrial hardware, the trainer provides a complete introduction to chain nomenclature, assembly, disassembly, alignment, and maintenance.

Packaged with several chain types, connecting links, attachment chain samples, sprockets, bushings, and applicable tools, this learning system offers a complete training experience in this fundamental industrial drive technology. Learners will use these industrial-grade components to study topics such as taper lock bushings, chain drive maintenance, installation/alignment of chains, and tensioning of chains. Not only do the components provide durability to stand up to frequent use, but they also help learners to become better prepared for the tasks they will encounter on the job.

The Chain Drive Training System includes the use of straight, keyed-bore, taper-bore, taper-lock, QD bushings, Morse HV chains, and silent chains, which allows for a variety of hands-on exercises. It also provides skill-building for industry-relevant tasks, like installing/removing QD and taper-lock bushings, fabricating shaft keys, and how to align industrial idlers.

Practice Hands-On Mechanical Skills for Various Applications

The Chain Drive Training System features a formed-steel baseplate with provision for tabletop mounting, as well as a welded aluminum motor and driven elements. It includes training on ground steel shafting, using a handwheel, and understanding multiple motor positions, which allows for establishment of several different chain lengths. It also comes with a chain, including 40 series standard, double-pitch, and single-pitch/double-strand, as well as six mixed diameter sprockets with provisions for keyed, taper-bore, taper-lock and QD huds.

Courseware & Hands-On Exercises

The Chain Drive Training System’s courseware consists of an IPT Industrial Trades Training Manual and a user’s guide with hands-on exercises. These can be used as part of either an instructor-led course or self-directed study.

Learners will explore a wide variety of fundamental chain drive topics, creating a complete, in-depth, hands-on course for use throughout industry. Hands-on exercises include industry-relevant skills, such as: chain drive components and concepts; identification of chain types; silent chains; sprocket terminology and use; installation and removal of Q.D. & taper lock bushings; use of a dial indicator in chain drive maintenance; chain drive maintenance pre-checks; fabrication and installation of shaft keys; and installation, alignment, and tensioning of roller chain, idlers, double pitch roller chain, multiple strand roller chain, and silent chain.
