V-Belt Idler Pulleys Manufactured in the United States
Retlaw produces the highest quality plastic idler pulleys available – perfect for your OEM component needs. Our durable V-Belt Pulleys keep grooved belts in place for the highest in motion control of drive belts. Thermoplastic V-Belt idlers have a low friction transfer coefficient, providing longer life for belts used in higher friction V-belt configurations.
Retlaw’s idlers are of single piece construction, giving immunity to rivet fatigue and separation. Our precision plastic molders build these glass-reinforced nylon idlers in a range sizes to cover the pulley system needs of many industries, ranging from gym equipment to lawnmowers, with clients like Husqvarna, and Toro using them in their consumer products.
What is a V-Belt Idler Used For?
V-belt pulleys are devices which transmit power between axles by the use of a v-belt, a mechanical linkage with a v-shaped cross-section. These pulleys have grooves located around the circumference which help guide and gain traction on a v-belt, and are a notable upgrade from round or flat belt transmissions. V-belt idlers provide excellent traction, speed, and load capabilities.
V-belt idler pulleys are used in a wide variety of applications, including:
- Material handling processes
- Hoisting equipment
- Fitness and lifting equipment
- Extra support to reduce belt vibration in other applications
