TKV’s sprockets are cast or forged from steel alloys and subsequently heat treated and machined. The steel alloy composition is of vital importance as if the steel does not contain sufficient quantities of carbon, then it becomes brittle during the hardening process. Also, if the sprockets are only surface hardened, then the sprocket or segment will wear rapidly. To ensure correct depth of hardening, the sprocket teeth are induction hardened. Test
TKV supplies sprockets and sprocket segments for a huge range of machines from 1 to 100 tonnes carrier weight and 101mm to 350mm track pitch. Sprockets and segments are available for both excavators and bulldozers.
