A manufacturer of satellite and telecommunications equipment, developed a television reception satellite dish for mounting atop recreational vehicles. The design requires a system of three uniquely designed custom pulleys that govern the raising, lowering, and rotation of the dish.
From construction material to pitch diameter and ratio, timing belt and pulley design requires a number of decisions to make sure you get the perfect pulley for your application.
From tractors to heavy machinery, variable speed pulleys are used in a huge variety of applications. But how do variable speed pulleys work?
Torque's HTD timing pulleys are precision, injection molded and glass reinforced to offer efficient power transmission without slip or backlash.
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.
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.
