Expanding for the Future

Posted on Oct 05, 2018

B&B Manufacturing has recently made a significant investment with a recent product line expansion. In addition to our synchronous drives and power transmission components, we have expanded our product offering to include an extensive supply of traditional V-Belt sheaves and bushings . We currently have over $1 million in sheaves and bushings in our inventory!

Our sheaves are engineered for rigorous, long-lasting use with minimal maintenance. For light duty sheaves, we offer bored-to-size AK, BK, VL, and VP, and we also have AK/BK with “H” bushings. The diameters range from 2” to 19” with 1 and 2 grooves for the light duty sheaves. The heavy duty sheave offering consists of A/B Combination, C-Section, 3V, 5V, and 8V Section sheaves. Our inventory includes QD bushed, with diameters ranging from 2” to 71” and  1 to 12 grooves. Both light and heavy duty sheaves are statically balanced to MPTA standards (B2c-2011), Precision Cast Iron, and fully machined with a grey powder enamel coating.

Additionally, B&B offers several types of tapered bushings from QD® (Quick Detachable), Double Split Taper, and Taper-Lock® (TL). Our stock includes both common and hard-to-find imperial and metric bores from stock. We also provide QD® and Taper-Lock® idler bushings with either ball or needle bearings. B&B Manufacturing strives to provide the highest quality product for our valued customers!
