High strength sprocket and chain kit

Hi! My team and I are making a robot for the first time and we’re trying to assemble the track wheels from the VEX V5 kit because we thought it was the most stable wheels for what we were trying to achieve for an effective robot working in the medial industry; however, we are very confused on how to assemble it on the robot and we can’t find instructions anywhere.

Could anyone help us in this particular area? Thank you!

this is known as the design part of engineering

cad tools are amazing for this : )


I am confused on what you mean by “track wheel” but I am assuming it is just a regular wheel. To assemble a wheel correctly, first you need to put inserts in it, attach it to an axle, and then attach an axle to a piece of c-channel / l-channel / etc. To attach it to a piece of metal you need bearings, which you can attach to the metal using rivets for easy assembly. I am not quite sure what you mean, so pictures would be nice.

If you’re looking for an example and detailed instructions for a sprocket/chain system, as an example, you could take a look at this V5 trainer from a couple years ago: https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/276-8001-752%20Rev1_web.pdf

If you’re looking for information on “tank treads” (if that’s what you mean by “track wheels”) then there’s an article here: https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/inventors-guide/tank-tread-final.pdf
