Timing Pulley for Satellite Positioners

Design and Working Principle of Timing Pulley

1. Tooth Profile

The tooth profile of a timing pulley is designed to engage with the teeth of the timing belt, ensuring smooth and precise motion transfer.

2. Material

Timing pulleys are commonly made from materials such as aluminum, steel, or plastic, depending on the application requirements.

3. Pitch Diameter

The pitch diameter of a timing pulley determines the speed ratio and torque transmission between the driver and driven components.
