    ...or to apply/transmit power. The round belt pulley accommodates a belt, cable, or rope in a groove around the circumference of the device to guide the drive element. Round belt pulleys are very efficient (approx. 95%), they can produce a mechanical advantage... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Sheaves-Image
    Sheaves - (148 companies)
    Sheaves Information. Sheaves are grooved wheels or pulleys used with rope or chain to change the direction and point of application of pulling force. There are many different types of products. Often, suppliers categorize sheaves by materials... Learn More
  • Motion Control Systems-Image
    Motion Control Systems - (301 companies)
    Motion control systems contain matched components such as controllers, motor drives, motors, encoders, user interfaces and software. Components in these systems are optimally matched by the manufacturer. Integrated motion control systems contain... Search by Specification | Learn More

    Belt and Chain Tensioners - (81 companies)
    ...pulley, belt, and chain wear; and increase the life of drive components. In drives, belts and chains are installed with enough tension to create a level of friction that causes the belts or chains to grip the pulleys and the pulleys to turn. Most belt... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Industrial Winches - (388 companies)
    ...are for single-line operation and are based on first layer rope performance. You could experience a loss of up to 13% pulling capacity per layer of wire rope. Double-line operation with an optional pulley block approximately doubles the capacity... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Gears - (594 companies)
    ...each other. One gear has the movement supplied to it by the turn of its shaft and is known as the drive. Interlocked teeth pressure the corresponding gear to turn in a ratio. If the drive turns a larger gear then torque is improved; if the drive... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Ratchets and Pawls - (24 companies)
    Ratchets and pawls are mechanical gearing used to transmit intermittent rotary motion. They permit a shaft to rotate in one direction, but not in the opposite one. Search by Specification | Learn More
  • V-Belt Pulleys - (214 companies)
    ...but these pulleys must be dynamically stabilized. V-belt pulleys may be placed in a side-by-side configuration or a single pulley may feature multiple grooves around the circumference in order to accommodate a multiple-belt drive. This type... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Timing Pulleys (inch) - (174 companies)
    ...drives. Some timing pulleys are designed with an inch-based pitch designation. Timing pulleys are used in power transmission systems where maintenance of speed ratio is an important design consideration. These synchronous belt drive systems are durable... Search by Specification | Learn More

Conduct Research

In addition to the flat leather and fabric belts used in belt drives of the early 1900s, industry used hemp or wire rope running in grooved pulleys. These rope systems inspired development of the rubber V-belt, which first appeared in the 1920s. V-belts make use of a wedging action between belt...
