Inch and Metric Plastic or Metal Timing Belt PulleySDP/SI manufactures a wide variety of metal and plastic inch and metric sized pulleys. Molded pulleys are offererd with and without inserts. For each profile offered there is a wide selection of available grooves, widths, single-flange, double-flange and no-flange. Other bore sizes, keyways or modifications are available on special order.
Commercial Shaftloc® Pulleys
Our Shaftloc® Pulleys are molded with a metal insert and are available with single or double flanges. They are available in XL, L, HTD® 3mm, and HTD® 5mm pitches.
Commercial Cables & Fittings
Miniature Cable is sold in multiples of 10 feet in .024 (inch) thru 1/8 (inch) O.D. Stainless Steel cable is nylon coated, protecting wire and pulleys from abrasion and sealing in lubrication. Threaded plugs, ball end plugs, loop sleeves and thimbles are also offered for use with the miniature cable.
Commercial Flat Belts
1/4 inch (6 mm) wide Flat Belts are designed for high-speed applications. Made of polyester woven cord with black neoprene coating, these belts are capable of reaching maximum speed of 20,000 fpm (6,100 meters/min.). Non-standard widths can be cut to size from sleeves available from stock.
Commercial Flat Timing Belt Pulleys
Inch and metric Flat Belt Pulleys are made of fiberglass reinforced polycarbonate with either brass or aluminum inserts and are available off-the-shelf. Pulleys with nonstandard diameters or of special design are available custom-made to your drawings.
Commercial Round Endless Belts
Commercial Rounthane Belts - Inch
Non-slip polyurethane belting is available in 3 diameters: 3/16, 1/4 and 5/16 (inch). These belts can be used with companion pulleys and grooved idlers, having diameters at least 8 times belt diameters. Belting can be installed as an open or closed drive system.
Commercial Rounthane Belt Connector - Inch
Aluminum connectors are sold for use with our non-slip polyurethane belting.
Commercial & Precision Grooved Idler Pulleys
Commercial Idler Pulleys with Needle Bearings
Steel Idler Pulleys with Needle type Bearings are available for flat belts, v-belts, sprockets and timing pulleys. Standard bore sizes are: 3/16 (inch), 1/4 (inch) and 1/2 (inch).
Commercial Synchromesh Pulleys
Synchromesh Pulleys are plastic drive pulleys with helical grooves on their outside diameter to enable accurate engagement with the spiral pattern on the drive cable. The pulleys are available in the following pitches: .120, .150, .200 and .250.

Commercial Synchromesh Attachments
A variety of attachments are offered for use with the synchromesh cable such as loop sleeves, plugs, eyes, for convenient screw mounting and thimbles. Stainless Steel thimbles provide loop support at higher loads & protect cables from wear when motion is present.

Commercial Tension Tester, Pencil Type - Inch
Easy-to-use, lightweight Pencil Type Tension Gauge measures maximum deflection force of 30 lbs.
Tension Tester, Sonic Type - Inch
The Sonic Tension Meter works on the theory that belts, like strings, vibrate at a particular natural frequency based on mass and span length. The meter converts this frequency into a measurement of tension. The meter provides fast, accurate tension readings and is suitable for checking multi-ribbed belts, V-belts, and synchronous belts.
Commercial Belt & Chain Tensioners
A variety of chain tensioners are offered by SDP/SI. Maintaining proper belt and chain tension protects equipment and results in long and trouble-free operation of drive systems.
Commercial Roller Chain Sprockets
Inch and metric sized sprockets designed to operate with roller chain are available as standard catalog items. A broad selection of materials, sizes, number of teeth and pitches are offered. Bore sizes start as small as 3/32 (inch). Plastic and metal roller chains are also available. Can't find a standard to meet your needs – our engineering staff can offer alternative solutions from simple modifications to custom design, engineering and manufacturing.

Timing Belt Pulleys
We offer a large selection of standard inch and metric timing belt pulleys in various materials: aluminum, steel, acetal, nylon, and polycarbonate. Timing belt pulleys are available with or without inserts, metal hubs, set screw or our superior Fairloc® design. However, there are some applications where the standard design does not meet all expectations. Modifications or a custom pulley or pulley system can be designed, engineered and manufactured in house. Contact us about your application requirements; select the link to our Product Inquiry Form or call to speak to an engineer.
The following profiles are available: Miniature Pulleys (FHT®-1, FHT®-2 and FHT®-3), MXL, 40 D.P., XL, L, HTD®, GT®2, T2.5, T5 and T10.
We also offer: Synchromesh Pulleys, Grooved Idler Pulleys, Grooved Pulleys, Flat Belt Pulleys, Idler Pulleys with Needle Bearings, and Companion Pulleys.
When Your Design Requires a Custom Plastic Component
We manufacture quality plastic pulleys, sprockets and gears that are RoHS and REACH compliant.
