When non-scheduled downtime costs are just not acceptable, implementation of Smart Tooth technology is the only answer. Strategic placement of wear indicator pins on one or more sprocket teeth makes it easier than ever to visually identify that a sprocket is still within allowable wear tolerance, or that it needs to be replaced. Understanding when to replace a Smart Tooth sprocket is simple, friction from chain pressure wears down the material of a sprocket tooth and when the wear indicator pin becomes visible it is time to replace the sprocket.

Wear indicator pins come standard on three sprocket teeth ensuring they are visible on any application no matter which part of the sprocket is covered. All Tsubaki Smart Tooth sprockets are shipped with a special blue coating making it easy to identify which sprockets have wear indicators.
