Timing pulleys are mechanical components used to transmit motion and torque between two or more shafts. They are reliable, durable, and designed to provide exact synchronisation with other components. Timing pulleys are generally made from aluminum or steel and have a variety of tooth profiles and diameters. The diameter of the pulley is determined by the pitch of the teeth, which are usually measured in metric or imperial units.
When selecting a timing pulley diameter pitch, there are a variety of factors to consider. Different standards are available, such as European or American standards, which have different tooth shapes and installation holes. Pilot bolts, tap bolts, and QD bolts are just some of the different types of installation holes available. Flange flanges and material choices, such as aluminum alloy, steel, or stainless steel, are also important considerations.
