Timing belt drives are increasingly replacing roller chain sprockets for the transfer of power from shaft to shaft, torque multiplication, speed reduction, speed increase, and shaft synchronization. B&B Manufacturing, the recognized leader in timing belt drives, continues to meet all needs for timing belt pulleys, timing belts, sprockets, timing pulley bar stock, flanges, and bushings across a broad range of industrial applications. B&B offers a full line of quality power transmission products featuring leading-edge technologies that deliver competitive advantages.
Powerhouse MX drives are built for high-torque, low-speed applications.
Powerhouse MX drives are resistant to chemicals, oils, cuts, and wear.
Powerhouse MX belt drives have superb flexibility.
Powerhouse MX drives are never made from sintered metal. Sintered metal pulleys are prone to cracking, fracturing, and are harder to machine. Residual porosity lowers a sintered metal pulley's final mechanical and physical properties.
Powerhouse MX drives are made from gray iron starting at 9 inch outside diameters instead of 4 inches like our competitors. Gray iron has a much lower tensile strength and makes a poor shock resistor when compared to ductile iron. Gray iron is also too brittle for some applications.
Powerhouse MX drives are also offered in finished bore sizes from stock. Finished bore pulleys eliminate the need for extra hardware such as the bushing. Because there are fewer parts, the Powerhouse MX pulleys with finished bores are easier to assemble and cheaper than the sum of the bushings and the bushed timing pulleys.
