The “driver” is usually the most important component of any moving system and it’s no different with conveyors. Simply put, conveyor pulleys are responsible for driving the belt.

It takes at least two to travel and are categorized as drive or head, return or tail, bend tensioning, snub tensioning or take-up pulleys. Maximum pulley life is essential to cost-efficient material handling and high-capacity production.
