Drive Pulley With Custom Tapered Shaft

Industry: Mining

Problem: Our Iron Ore mining customer was faced with replacing their main drive pulley, which has been in service for nearly 25 years. This drive pulley feeds iron ore for the entire plant, and was critical to their daily production. Any downtime/problems with this pulley would cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost production.

Solution: We manufactured a pulley that was 5’ in diameter complete with a totally custom 7.5” diameter stepped shaft, and a shell that was over 1.5” thick. When it left our shop it weighed in over 10,000lbs!
