Sheaves, bushings, jaw couplings and belting are frequently thought of as commodity products. They are offered by many suppliers, look and functionally perform similarly. However, there are still important considerations in choosing a supplier from both a Product, Service, and Availability standpoint.
- Control over the quality, engineering, design, and availability.
- All sheaves and bushings come from a single foundry in China. We don't broker production out or move it around so we have consistent production flow and stringent control from original castings to finish product.
- The best looking product on the market.
- Every part, sheaves and bushings (except powdered metal H bushings) are phosphate coated. The phosphate coating yields the best paint adhesion and corrosion resistance in the marketplace. Sheaves then receive a baked enamel finish for durability and long life.
- Sheave mounting flexibility.
- MasterDrive offers 3 mounting arrangements utilizing QD Bushings, DST Bushings and TL Bushings all from stock.
- All sheaves are balanced for smooth trouble free operation.
