- Offer Profile
- Ramsey Products has
specialized in silent chain drive products for more than 85 years. Today,
Ramsey is the world's leading supplier of silent chain based solutions for
industry. We offer an extensive range of silent chains, sprockets, chain
driven speed reducers, transmissions, and couplings, all backed by our
commitment to exceptional customer service and support.
- Silent chain drives are capable of transmitting power
with low noise, high efficiency, and reduced vibration, at speeds and loads
that exceed the capability of other belts and chains. There are many styles
of silent chain and Ramsey offers a wide range of designs for different
application requirements and budgets. Almost all Ramsey silent power
transmission chains utilize efficient, quiet, two-pin roller bearing joints.
Silent Chain Sprockets
- Ramsey offers a full range of stock and made to order
sprockets in pitches ranging from 3/16” pitch to 2 1/4” pitch. Stock
sprockets are available with minimum plain bores or taper lock bushings. For
an additional charge they can be machined with a finished bore and keyway.
Made to order sprockets provide an almost unlimited range of options and are
a large part of our daily production.Ramsey also supplies sprockets to
replace most competitors' products. We welcome all inquiries.
- Many power transmission components are manufactured with
heat treated surfaces to increase durability and reduce wear. Ramsey has
over thirty years of experience in the precision surface hardening of gears,
sprockets, pulleys, and shafts. Utilizing computer controlled flame
hardening equipment Ramsey can economically harden a wide range of part
Silent Chain Couplings
- There are two models of Ramsey silent chain couplings,
the Straight Type and the Diagonal Type. Straight Type couplings are
composed of coupling halves that are split perpendicular to the shaft axis.
A hardened steel silent chain joins the two halves. Diagonal Type couplings
are split at an angle to the shaft axis. Due to the angular split, the chain
that wraps a Diagonal couplings is loaded in shear,as well as tension. This
results in Diagonal couplings having a somewhat higher load capacity than
straight couplings, where the chain is only loaded in shear.

Silent Conveying Chains
- Ramsey has supplied glass conveying chain to bottle
producers and glass equipment manufacturer’s for more than 40 years. Today,
we offer the widest range of production proven silent conveying chains of
any company in the world. From hot end, to cold end, to inspection
applications, Ramsey silent chain can be found in production plants
throughout the world.
Wear Protected Conveying Chains
Allguard and AllguardFX are conveying chains that offer exceptional wear
resistance for applications where pin head wear must be completely
Take Out Arm Drives
- Working with Glass Industry engineers, Ramsey has
developed a new solution that greatly extends the life of take out arm
drives. Utilizing high performance RPV silent chain in place of elastomeric
belts, Ramsey take out arm drives can provide more than 10 times the life of
a typical belt drive. Available in kit form to retrofit most existing take
out arms or as a complete assembly.
