Raymor bead chain drives are an ingenious adaptation of bead chain combined with special sprockets which provide a flexible, positive driving mechanism at low cost.  By taking advantage of the "swivel" characteristics and spherical shape of the bead chain links, omni-directional positive drives can be designed with great freedom of orientation of the components.  We stock over 35 sizes of our standard brass sprockets for four different sizes of bead chain as well as for plastic bead belt, a related drive material consisting of plastic beads molded onto a plastic cord.  Custom designed sprockets with up to 120 sockets can be supplied.  In addition to stocking a complete line of connectors, links and accessories, we feature a complete, on-premises machine ship to handle any custom designs to your specifications.  Should you require assistance with your application, our engineering department will provide help based on thousands of successful applications.
