Typically found in lathes, light-duty milling machines, drills, and other power tools plastic or nylon molded v-belt pulleys are designed to be excellent solutions for low and fractional horsepower drives. And while standard design v-belt pulleys are appropriate for most applications, there are situations where a custom v-belt pulley is necessary.
Multi-ribbed pulleys are molded to tight tolerances to keep concentricity nearly perfect and are found in a number of industries and applications.
A critical component of power transmission systems is a right-angle worm gear speed reducer, also referred to as a right-angle gear box or a worm gear reducer.
Carter Day, a Minnesota-based manufacturer of agricultural equipment, produces a particular grain dryer that utilized a 14.4 inch, diameter, 8mm HTD timing pulley to rotate the dryer.
Especially designed for low and fractional horsepower drives, v belt pulley construction material plays a significant part in the function of the pulley.
What specifications do you need know about your multi ribbed pulley before you order? What is going to impact the cost of your pulley? Is a custom solution best or will a standard option work for your application? These are just a few of the question you might ask when selecting your multi ribbed pulley supplier.
No matter what kind of pulley is right for a given application, there are a couple of things that must always be considered. First and foremost, the pulley must be able to perform the given job. A cost-effective solution that can also offer advantages like noise reduction and shock resistance ...
For some applications, an off-the-rack design option is not the best solution. Custom designing an injection molding solution in-house can be a daunting task, however, and often out-sourcing the design presents significant time delays and price increases.
Efficient power transmission is the key to any timing pulley, and plastic timing belt pulleys can deliver efficiency without slip or backlash.
