Wedge Pulleys

A wedge pulley is one one of the most commonly used pulleys in power transmission systems. The belt is designed with a trapezoidal (wedge) cross-section to overcome the alignment and belt slippage problems associated with other pulley designs. Under load, the belt will wedge deeper into the pulley groove, improving the transmission of the torque.
