What is MXL Pulley Stock?

Timing pulley stock is a piece of sturdy material, such as aluminum, steel, stainless steel, or plastic manufactured with pulley teeth along its length. Timing pulley stock is the standard material used to create custom timing pulleys. Stock is often utilized for prototyping, experimentation, or crafting replacement parts.

MXL stands for “miniature extra light,” which is one of many tooth styles you can select when you design custom timing pulley stock with Illinois Pulley & Gear.

What is MXL Pulley Stock used for?

MXL timing pulley stock is typically used for prototypes, or during the beginning phase of a project, for example, when an engineer knows the number of teeth and the profile that will be required but is not yet sure of other specifications. 

MXL pulley stock is also used more generally for any pulley application that requires greater width. Some examples of machines and applications that frequently use our MXL pulley stock include: 

  • 3D printers,
  • computer printers with hard drives,
  • security and surveillance equipment,
  • test handlers for semiconductors and thermal sub-systems,
  • motion control devices,
  • heavy machinery, including oil pumps,
  • and many more.
