Tolerances for Caliper Diameters of Precision Chain Sprockets ANSI/ASME B29.1M

Caliper diameter is the same as the bottom diameter for a sprocket with an even number of teeth. For a sprocket with an odd number of teeth, it is defined as the distance from the bottom of one tooth gap to that of the nearest opposite tooth gap.

  • The caliper diameter for an even tooth sprocket is equal to pitch diameter–roller diameter.
  • The caliper diameter for an odd tooth sprocket is equal to caliper factor–roller diameter.
  • Caliper factor = PD[cos (90° / N)], where PD = pitch diameter and N = number of teeth.
  • Caliper factors for 1-in. pitch and sprockets having 9 to 108 teeth are given below in the table.

Caliper diameter tolerances are minus only and are equal to:
