MechMinutes Video: Types of Pulley Mounting

TIMING BELTS & PULLEYS PT. 5: TYPES OF PULLEY MOUNTING | MECH MINUTES | MISUMI USA

So far in our MechMinutes: Timing Belts & Pulleys series, you’ve learned how to identify the appropriate belt for your application, and the basics of setup, including tensioning, alignment, and typical wear signs. If you missed out on any of the previous episodes, feel free to hit pause and go back to get caught up. In this episode, we’ll take a look at Types of Mounting for pulleys, and the main uses of each one.

Beginning with the most inexpensive options, good for fitting into tight budget scenarios where the load is not a big constraint, set screws provide security for only the lowest loads.
