Miki Pulley are a Japanese company with offices and plants in a number of countries around Europe and Asia. The most famous Miki components are their stepless speed changer products, though they also manufacture a number of other high quality industrial machine parts such as electromagnetic clutches and brakes.
Miki Pulley Company History
started business as a humble parts maker in 1939, with the company starting to evolve
into the globally-esteemed manufacturer they are known as today in the
mid-1950s when they acquired the patent for a mechanical stepless speed changer.
The immediate success of this crucial component enabled the company to expand
into a new plant in 1961, with production of their innovative electrical
stepless speed changer beginning soon after.
They also began
developing electromagnetic clutches and brakes, products which would really
take-off in popularity during the 1970s. This period also saw the company sign
a number of partnerships with other firms to produce industrial machinery
products such as shaft couplings and torque tenders.
In 1980, Miki
Pulley’s then-president Yoshiharu Miki was awarded the Yellow
Ribbon Medal of Honour, which Japanese authorities award to individuals who
have become public role models thanks to their ‘diligence and perseverance’ exhibited
during their professional activities. Later that year, the company began
production of their GTO Inverter V FREQ product and expanded further into the
industrial machinery components manufacturing sector.
continued over the years, and in 2004 they acquired the ISO14001 certification while
establishing an office in Shanghai and a subsidiary firm in Denmark. The ISO9001:
2000 certification was acquired in 2006.
2009 was another
great year for Miki
components, when the BES model of their electromagnetic clutch and brake received
the Manufacturing Parts Award in the category of Machinery Parts. Their STEPFLEX high damping performance
coupling would also win the Good Design Award in 2014, and a year later their
current president Koji Miki would take the reins and continue expanding the
Miki Pulley Electromagnetic Clutches
As well as their
increasing their range of popular speed charger products, they also improved
and enhanced their electromagnetic clutches. Suppliers like Yorkshire-based YB

quickly as well all around the world.
electromagnetic clutches release, stop and hold machinery in place using
electromagnetic force. There are different types of clutch available according
to the method of actuation. One type is actuated electromagnetically and another
is actuated by a spring. The electromagnetic-actuated
variety means the clutches and brakes are operated via a current passing
through a coil, while the spring-actuated clutches operated via the force of a
spring when the current to the coil is closed off.
