Pulley Testing

Our Team have the capability to test various pulleys across applications. Our Mackay facility houses the largest loaded pulley test bed on the East Coast. Designed to test against site VA standards, the Loaded Run Machine features PLC Variable wrap angle and loading to mimic site operations, and an infintely variable belt speed.

Where loaded testing is not required and a more economical option is desired, a standard run-test can be provided with thermal and VA testing, complete with third party report.
