Thermoset Pulley
The lightest and strongest solution.

HUTCHINSON HAS ALREADY DESIGNED
AND DELIVERED TWENTY MILLION PULLEYS

For more than 20 years Hutchinson designs and produces molded pulleys
in phenolic thermoset resins.
 

  • Weight reduction
  • Cost reduction
  • Heat resistance
  • Mechanical strength

WEIGHT REDUCTION

Hutchinson development team performs dedicated and optimized
design throught Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

  • 4 times lighter by density 2 g/cm3 vs Steel : 8 g/cm3 and around 3 times lighter after design
  • Fuel consumption & CO2 emission reduction
  • Optimized NVH behavior of the belt drive (inertia reduction)

MECHANICAL RESISTANCE

  • Heavy loads up to 4000 N
  • Warranty of screwed assembly over time
  • Temperature environment -40 to +140° C
