Standard pitch is a center spacing of 22.7mm or 44 roller shafts per meter. Coarse pitch is the center spacing of 37mm or 27 roller shafts per meter. T-bar is a support piece used in conveyor sizes over 450 and prevents bending of the roller shafts. Press fit rollers are a roller that is attached to the roller shaft to create a uniform spin. Sprocket is pressed onto the roller shaft and interlinked with the chain to provide rotation. The Timing Jump Belt transmits power from a roller shaft with a sprocket, to one without.
