Types of drive belts

Types of drive belts

Drive belts are the basic elements that allow the transfer of movement so that a given machine can operate effectively – we are talking about both simple in construction devices and those more technologically advanced. Drive belts are used in almost all industries. There are several types that can be selected according to your needs.

Flat drive belts

Flat drive belts are used to transfer power in ordinary drives and tangential drives. The advantage of flat drive belts is the ability to transfer high power with optimally small dimensions, and at the same time low elongation and short tensioning distances, resistance to oils, greases and moisture . They are used, among others, in the paper, printing, wood and textile industries.

Toothed belts

Toothed belts are used in places where constant and quiet operation is possible . Their advantage is good protection against slipping during gear operation. They are divided into three groups: belts with an inch pitch, metric pitch and special belts. They work well as a drive element, among others, in fans, presses, drills and in woodworking machines or drives for belt and roller conveyors.

Lashing belts

Guying belts are used primarily in the coating of cables, pipe profiles, as well as in the processing of plastics . They have an endless, braided string carrier. They are characterized by high resistance to tearing and flexibility as well as high measurement precision. In addition, they are resistant to oils and fats, as well as resistant to sulfur and ozone.

Segment belts

Sectional V-belts (HPC) are an excellent alternative to standard rubber belts . They perform well in harsh conditions and meet the requirements of complex drives.
