Belts are the most commonly used form of drive belt for power transmission. Its primary purpose is to transfer power from a primary source to a secondary powered unit, like a engine. We deliver the perfect mix of stability, movement of volume, delivery of loads and long service life.
Unlike flat belts which rely solely on friction and can track and slide off pulleys, V-belts have sidewalls which fit into the corresponding sheave grooves, providing additional surface area and greater stability. When belt tension works, a wedge force is applied perpendicular to their tips, pressing their sidewalls against the sides of the sheave grooves, increasing frictional forces that cause the drive to transfer higher loads. The way a V-belt fits in the sheave groove when working under tension affects its output.
