  • Mold: Design and create the mold for the drive pulley.
  • Casting: Pour molten material into the mold to form the pulley shape.
  • Raw materials: Select high-quality materials for the pulley production.
  • Production: Manufacture the drive pulley according to design specifications.
  • Testing: Perform quality checks and testing on the finished pulley.
  • Antirust treatment: Apply coating or treatment to prevent corrosion.
  • Separate inspection: Inspect each drive pulley individually for quality control.
  • Marking: Label the drive pulley with relevant information for identification.

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

  • Drive pulley is responsible for transmitting power, while head pulley is used for belt support.
  • Drive pulley is connected to the motor, while head pulley is located at the end of the conveyor system.
  • Drive pulley is typically larger in size compared to head pulley.
  • Drive pulley rotates to transfer motion, while head pulley provides support and direction to the belt.
  • Drive pulley is crucial for power transmission, while head pulley is important for belt tracking.
  • Drive pulley is located at the beginning of the conveyor system, while head pulley is at the end.
  • Drive pulley plays a more active role in the machinery system compared to head pulley.
