What are V-pulleys used for?

V-pulleys are used in conjunction with V-belts in order to transmit power and torque across an application.

How do v-pulleys work?

The V-shaped grooves on the belt hold on to the V-belt to avoid slippage. The tension of the belt, combined with the friction of the grooves against the belt cause the pulley and shaft to rotate together.

What options are available?

These pulleys are available in a choice of pilot bore and taper bore options.
