Dunlop standard catalogue products are available to order from our stock inventory, or we can customise parts to meet your own specific requirements.
V & Wedge Belts and V-Pulleys
V-belts and high-capacity wedge belts and pulleys remain the most widely used power transmission system as they are proven to offer dependable service, with minimum maintenance. Designed to link two rotating shafts they offer high efficiency, high misalignment tolerance and are economical. With one of the largest stock holdings found anywhere in Europe, you can be assured of immediate availability.
V-link belting has low vibration and noise output, the link structure can dampen vibration caused by unbalanced pulleys or bearings. Being more durable than standard V-belts and are easier to install and remove, especially when used on heavy industrial plant and equipment that would otherwise need a complete strip down of the machines components pulleys, bearings, motors etc.
Multi-rib Belts and Pulleys
Multi-rib belts are ideally suited for high speed and or high drive ratio applications that conventional V-belt drives are not suitable for. They offer smooth, vibration free performance in a single compact drive belt, resistant to heat and abrasion. This drive belt design offers low noise output at very high speeds, combining the high flexibility and light weight of flat belts, with the grip and performance of V-belts.
Timing (synchronous) Belts and Pulleys
Timing belt systems offer more HP/KW, higher torque, lower speeds and smoother quieter operation, delivering positive trouble-free transmission in torque ranges only previously serviced by chain and gear components. Timing belt systems offer the best possible technology for synchronous drives, allowing excellent mechanical efficiency, resistance to high and intermittent overloads together with low fitting tensions.
Roller Chain and Sprockets
Roller chain and sprockets provide high power synchronous drive systems, suitable for a wide range of applications and are available in materials such as steel, stainless steel and nickel plated. They are constructed from high quality materials and are finished to tight dimensional tolerances and permit the functioning of a precision gear system. Used in applications from bicycles to industrial and agricultural machinery.
Double Pitch Conveyor Chain
Double pitch conveyor chain is equivalent to standard roller chain but just with double the pitch length, for example ASA80 roller chain has a 1” imperial pitch and C2080 double pitch chain has a 2” imperial pitch but all other dimensions remain the same, although most double pitch conveyor chains are typically manufactured with straight side plates as opposed to the more traditional figure of eight shape.

Flexible and rigid couplings form a vital link between mating components covering virtually any industrial application, from low power low speed general purpose drives, through to high power high torque applications. Flexible couplings cater for misalignment, absorb shock loads and damp out vibrations, while rigid couplings provide a convenient method of rigidly connecting the end of shafts.
Weld-on & Bolt-on Hubs and Adaptors
Weld-on hubs are manufactured from steel, they are drilled, tapped and taper bored. The outer diameter is machined with a shoulder that provides a location point when welding to its mating component. Bolt-on hubs are manufactured from cast iron, drilled, tapped and taper bored. The outer flange has pre-tapped threaded holes for fixing to a fan rotor, plate wheel and various other components.
Taper bushes and Locking Devices
Taper bushes and locking devices form the most convenient and cost-effective method of fixing power transmission components to a mating shaft, without the need for any machining process. Designed for use with V-belt, timing belt and multi-rib belt pulleys, chain sprockets, couplings, hubs and adaptors, they forms a vital link between shaft and the drive components shaft.
Tensioners & Idlers
Power transmission drives, namely V-belts, timing belts and roller chains will elongate significantly over time if not properly maintained. Incorrect belt or chain tension will lead to increased downtime, lower equipment productivity and inflated maintenance costs. Tensioners & idlers eliminate the need for regular manual tensioning of drives, available for both belt and chain drive systems.
Motor Slide Bases
Motor slide bases are a cost-effective method of mounting electric motors, that may require adjustment to centre distances or where drive belt re-tensioning may be required. They are suitable for all types of industrial plant and equipment that may require belt tightening/tensioning, this may be due to belt strength/length and environmental conditions and fluctuations in ambient temperature.
3-Phase electric motors are available meeting the latest IE2 & IE3 efficiency levels, foot, flange and foot and flange mounting arrangements. Aluminium frames from sizes 0.75KW to 7.5KW along with pressed steel feet keep the motors weight to a minimum, frame sizes from 63 upwards are cast iron, all compare with other leading manufacturers ensuring suitable Interchangeable.
