Belts

Belts are critical components in various applications, including power transmission, motion control, and conveyor systems. In power transmission, they transfer energy from one point to another, ensuring efficient machinery operation. During motion control, belts synchronize movement, maintaining accuracy and precision in devices such as printers, scanners, and automated assembly systems. Belts are also the moving mechanism that transports goods in conveyor systems.

About Belts

Drive belts are integral to many mechanical systems as a conduit for transmitting power between machine parts. Typically found in machinery, most notably motor vehicles, they connect the engine's crankshaft to various peripherals such as the alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, and more. For example, by rotating with the engine, the drive belt ensures these components function as intended, maintaining vehicle performance and efficiency.


Flat drive belts are crucial in the mechanical world, particularly in power transmission systems. These belts, typically rubber or leather, connect two or more rotating shafts. They efficiently transmit power or motion from one shaft to another with minimal slippage, ensuring the smooth operation of the machines. Due to their flat design, they can handle high speeds and large loads, making them a preferred choice in many industrial applications. More on flat drive belts.


Due to their durability and versatility, twisted urethane belts are a unique type of drive belt used in various industries. These belts are made from urethane, a synthetic material with high abrasion resistance and flexibility. Twisted urethane belts perform the critical function of power transmission in machines, often connecting two or more pulleys in conveyor systems, packaging, and robotics. They facilitate efficient machine operations by transferring power with minimal slip and stretch. The twisted design is advantageous in quick installation or maintenance, as workers can fit them without dismantling the entire system. More on twisted urethane belts.


Round drive belts are standard in a variety of mechanical devices for the transmission of power. They are in conveyors, pulleys, and drive systems, transferring rotational force from one part of the device to another. Made from polyurethane, rubber, or polyester, round belts allow for efficient power transfer with minimal slippage, and their flexible nature accommodates varying distances and angles between components.
