Zikos Metallurgy designs and manufactures various types of pulleys, drive (tapered, cylindrical) and idler, according to their function and position in the conveyor belt. Drive pulleys have a cylindrical centre section with tapered edges for centering the conveyor belt. End discs are designed and machined according to the loading conditions.

Shafts are fixed to end discs by:

  • Welding
  • mounted bearings
  • friction locks (bolting)

Rubber lagging for increased friction, belt protection, and built up prevention is also available.
