A vee pulley, also known as a V-belt pulley, is a type of pulley specifically designed to work with Vee belts (V-belts) in power transmission systems. The vee pulley’s shape corresponds to the cross-sectional shape of the vee belt, which is trapezoidal, resembling the letter “V.” This design ensures a secure grip between the V-belt and the pulley, allowing for efficient power transmission from one shaft to another.
Features and benefits:
- Efficient power transmission
- Low maintenance

Q: How do I choose the right Vee pulley for my application?
Selecting the right Vee pulley involves considering factors such as the required power transmission capacity, belt size and type, shaft speed, and the pulley's dimensions.
Q: What are the limitations of Vee pulleys?
- Speed Limitations- Vee pulleys have a recommended maximum speed limit to prevent belt slip and maintain power transmission efficiency. For high-speed applications, alternative power transmission methods may be more suitable.
- Load Capacity- Vee pulleys have a certain load-carrying capacity based on the belt's specifications. For heavy-duty applications, larger pulleys or alternative power transmission methods may be required.
