  • The drive pulley is a key component in conveyor systems, responsible for transmitting power and motion.
  • It is designed with a cylindrical shape and a central shaft to support the belt and provide traction.
  • The working principle involves the rotation of the pulley, which moves the belt along the conveyor system.
  • Friction between the belt and the drive pulley surface ensures efficient transfer of power.
  • Proper alignment and maintenance are essential for optimal performance of the drive pulley.

  • Mold design and preparation.
  • Casting of the drive pulley using selected materials.
  • Selection of raw materials for durability and performance.
  • Precision production to meet design specifications.
  • Thorough testing for quality assurance.
  • Application of antirust treatment for longevity.
  • Separate inspection to ensure compliance with standards.
  • Marking for identification and traceability.

What is the difference between a drive pulley and a head pulley?

  • The drive pulley is responsible for transmitting power, while the head pulley is used for belt support and direction change.
  • Drive pulleys are located at the discharge end of the conveyor, while head pulleys are at the loading end.
  • Drive pulleys are connected to the motor for power transmission, while head pulleys are connected to the belt for support.
  • Drive pulleys are usually larger in diameter compared to head pulleys.
  • Drive pulleys have a higher priority in terms of maintenance and alignment due to their role in power transmission.
  • Drive pulleys are more exposed to wear and tear compared to head pulleys.
  • Drive pulleys are crucial for the overall functionality of the conveyor system, while head pulleys primarily provide support.
