- Pulleys created to your specifications.
The Taurus pulley is fabricated from a cylindrical shell to which relatively thick end discs are fully welded. The shell is attached to a continuous shaft using locking elements and the completed assembly is mounted in external bearing houses.
The locking element used for disc to shaft attachment provides a demountable shrink fit ideal for maintenance purposes. Due to accurate control of the fit, coupled with the absence of any notch effect, the resulting stress concentration produced by the locking element is very low.
The pulley shell and shaft assembly is designed as an integral unit, where the stresses imposed in each component as a result of the belt tension, angle of wrap, pulley rotation and overall pulley dimensions (diameter, face length and bearing centres) are all assessed.
Taurus' design and manufacture of pulleys is accompanied by a design check which locates any anomalies before the pulley design is finalised. A mill certificate can also be supplied to certify the quality of each pulley.
