Two Step Pulley: Function, Types, and How to Choose the Right One

Why do we use stepped pulley?

Stepped pulleys, also known as cone pulleys, are used to transmit power from one shaft to another shaft by means of a belt or chain. They are often used in machines that require different speeds, as they allow the machine to operate at different speeds without the need for a clutch or gear shift. Here are some reasons why we use stepped pulleys:

  • Simple design and easy to use
  • Low maintenance cost
  • Provide a wide range of speed ratios for machines
  • Highly efficient in power transmission
  • Low noise and vibration during operation

What is a stepped cone pulley used for?

A stepped cone pulley is a type of pulley that has different diameters on its surface. It is used in machines that require different speeds by changing the speed ratio of the pulley. Here are some of the common uses of stepped cone pulleys:

  • Lathes
  • Milling machines
  • Drilling machines
  • Grinding machines
  • Boring machines

What are the three types of pulley?

There are three types of pulleys:

  • Fixed pulleys – these pulleys are fixed in place and do not move. They change the direction of the force but do not provide any mechanical advantage.
  • Movable pulleys – these pulleys are attached to the object being moved and move with it. They provide mechanical advantage but do not change the direction of the force.
  • Compound pulleys – these pulleys consist of a combination of fixed and movable pulleys. They provide both mechanical advantage and direction change of the force.

How to Choose or Customize the Right Step Pulley

Choosing the right step pulley involves considering several factors, including:

  • The required speed range of the machine
  • The horsepower and torque requirements of the machine
  • The diameter of the motor and driven shafts
  • The type of belt or chain used
  • The amount of space available for the pulley

Customizing a step pulley can also provide a tailored solution for specific machine requirements. To customize a step pulley, the following parameters need to be considered:

  • Diameter and width of the pulley
  • Number of steps on the pulley
  • Angle of the cone
  • Material of the pulley
  • Surface finish of the pulley
