Plastic Pulleys

Using a plastic pulley instead of its steel counterpart has several added benefits when it comes to weight, noise reduction, and resistance to corrosion. Many of the plastic pulleys we supply are also FDA and USDA approved for use within the food production industry. We supply plastic timing belt pulleys, plastic round belt pulleys, plastic v-belt sheaves, and application-specific plastic pulleys!

Plastic V-Belt Pulleys


Plastic pulleys for v-belts are commonly found in abrasive and weight-saving applications, they are also commonly referred to as plastic v-belt sheaves. We supply these pulleys with a standard stock round bore, as a finished bore with key-way and set screws, and as an idler configuration with a bearing. Our plastic v-belt pulleys are made from a high-quality UHMW for the greatest transfer of power and extended working life. Custom v-belt pulleys can be supplied as well upon request.

Pulleys and Assemblies

Pulleys are normally furnished in green UHMWPE-Ultra-D, Nylon(s), Delrin(s), and lubricant-filled hardwood. The pulleys we offer require no lubrication and are particularly adaptable to wet, chemical-laden environments that are commonly found in the food-can beverage industry.
