Sheaves and Pulleys


1,503 products found

Sheaves and pulleys are round wheels with a flat or grooved edge that transmit rotational force from one shaft to another when connected with a V-belt or gearbelt. They are typically used to power fans, pumps, conveyors, and other industrial machinery. Idlers maintain consistent tension on belts to reduce slippage and move belts away from obstacles. Timing belt pulleys have grooves that provide maximum surface contact with the belt teeth for good power transmission and minimal slipping. V-belt pulleys provide maximum friction and torque in compatible V-belt drive systems.
