Timing pulley is made up of light-weighted materials like cast iron, aluminium and plastic and is widely used in the textiles and automobiles industrial segments.Timing pulley suppliers ensure that the belt creep is reduced to the minimum possible level. Apart from this, side flanges are provided in order to prevent the side movement of the belt when it is rotating.
Timing pulleys are the specialized type of pulleys, which have distinctively designed teeth or pockets outside the diameter of the instrument body. Timing pulley manufacturers ensure that the timing teeth perfectly engage into the metal belt holes while the timing pockets grip lugs on the metal belt’s inner circumference. It is noteworthy to mention that the teeth and pockets are used only for the timing purpose and have no role to play in power transmission.
You can select a timing pulley based on parameters like diametrical pitch, power transmission requirements, speed ratio needed, the diameter of the driver and driven pulley, the distance between the diver and driven pulley, etc. to name a few. The tooth shape of the timing pulley is either trapezoidal or curvilinear and it manufactured on shaping machines. In case of plastic timing pulley, however, it created by finch molding plastic as per the required tooth shape.
