Ancillary Products and Rare Parts   


The main products supplied by YB Components are usually gearboxes and motors, couplings and clutches, plus a variety of variable speed pulleys and belts. However, there is also a large selection of ancillary products and rare parts which don’t fit into any of the more popular product categories.

Here we take a look at a few of these rarer products, most of which can be found in our Ancillary Products section.

Vulkollan Wheels

Vulkollan wheels can be found on many different types of industrial machinery. They are pretty much the industry standard for both light weight and heavy duty applications.

Constructed with a special polyurethane that contains a very powerful elastomer, Vulkollan wheels are designed to have high prolongation, elongation and rigidity.  For example, the standard 90 degree Vulkollan material can be stretched up to seven times its original length. The material in the wheels is also very hard-wearing, and even small damage does not get worse over time, as is common in other rubber wheel materials.

Vulkollan wheels suppliers, Yorkshire-based YB Components, keep local stocks ready to be shipped fast and free all over the UK and the rest of the world. Any businesses based in Yorkshire can even expect same day delivery in urgent situations.

Pulley for Heidelberg Printing Machine

The Heidelberg printing machine was launched in 1914 and remained popular until it ceased to be manufactured in 1984. It was originally designed and built by the Heidelberger Druckmaschinen firm in Germany, a company that continues to be a world leader in printing innovations today, only now in digital products.

While the original Heidelberg Platen Press is no longer manufactured, there are still plenty of them in operation. This is why YB Components continue to supply the pulley for Heidelberg printing machines amongst their many ancillary products and rare parts.

Rader-Vogel Castors

Rader-Vogel Wheels are known for their wheels, but they also manufacture an impressive range of castors. There are multiple designs, different types of which are suitable for institutional, industrial or heavy-duty applications. Each of the castor models can be either fixed or in the form of swivel castors, which allow the wheel to spin in a circle for multi-directional movement.

All of the Rader-Vogel castors are built to last and to an exceptionally high quality, with the Rader-Vogel engineers renowned for their fine workmanship.

Rulmeca Rollers

The selection of belt conveyors by Rulmeca Rollers are designed specifically for bulk handling large and heavy goods. The Rulmeca Rollers product range includes steel rollers as well as thermoplastic rollers. The latter feature special rubber rings that absorb impact shocks. There are also special conveyors specifically designed for different applications, including carrying, return and self-aligning stations. They also manufacture a variety of accessory products including clamping units, belt cleaners, belt covers and impact bars.

If you require any Vulkollan wheels, Rader-Vogel castors, a pulley for Heidelberg printing machine or any Rulmeca Rollers, then contact YB Components who are the UK’s leading machine parts suppliers.
