Synchronous belts are flexible belts with teeth curved into their inner surfaces. They are also called toothed belts, cog belts, or cogged belts, and their teeth are designed to synchronize with matched cogged sprockets
or pulleys. They are used in a variety of mechanical devices that require high power transmission. The teeth are used to prevent the belts from slipping from the drive. Their anti-slipping property makes them suitable for transferring motion for timing or indexing purposes. They are applied in sewing machines motorcycle engines and photocopiers. Pitch synchronous belts are capable of delivering more power than friction drive belts such as V belts are also much lighter. Pitch synchronous belt s do not require tension adjustments,' and the pitch mainly refers to the distance (measured in mm or inches) between 2 tooth centers. The belts are used extremely useful in application areas where positioning, indexing, or constants ration is required. Get the best selection of high precision synchronous belts from MRO Supply.
