Timing pulleys are specialized pulleys designed with sprockets or teeth on the outer diameter of the pulley body. Their timing teeth are designed to engage the holes of the metal belt while sprockets
engage the drive lug from the inner circumference. It is important to note that unlike other pulleys that are used for power transmission, the timing pulleys are used for timing.
The timing belts can be designed using a wide range of materials. The common materials used to design chain pulleys are iron and aluminum. However, other materials such as plastic, acetal, polycarbonate, and steel can also be used. It is very important to consider crucial factors such as the design horsepower, operating temperature, and environmental conditions when selecting the material for your timing belt.
In a vehicle’s internal combustion system, timing pulleys are used to synchronize the rotation of camshaft and crankshaft. Make sure to visit our site to see the full list of timing pulleys and place your order.
