Cover for welding wire container

Disclosed is a pulley which is attached to a cover intended to be placed on a container in which a large amount of welding wire is stored. The cover is in particular part of a so-called 24/7 system which allows to automatically switch from a wire supply contained in a first container to the wire supply containing in a second container.

The pulley is mounted at the end of a slit in the cover through which the welding wire is withdrawn from the container. It is made of ceramic and prevents the welding wire from cutting into the material of the cover. The pulley is mounted in a rotatable, low friction manner in a support block. The dimensions of the pulley with respect to the support block are such that the welding wire cannot enter into a gap between the pulley and the support block. Rather, the components are dimensioned and shaped such that the welding wire is guided into a central guiding groove of the pulley.
