Companion Spotlight: Synchronous Pulleys

Timing belt drives

Self-guiding Conidrive timing belt drives feature the N10 belt-pulley system with an offset conical projection profile on the bearing surface to ensure positive fit without pulley flanges, even for narrow belts.

Features & benefits

  • Nondirectional 10-mm pitch belts offer same meshing in both directions of travel

  • Polyurethane, reinforced with steel tensile-cords for strength

  • 500 to 1.000-mm lengths; belt stock also available in 50-m lengths

  • Single, double, triple-row types featuring nonchordal action

  • Fairloc integral hubs create a transverse wedge that remains attached to the solid portion of the hub on one side

Stainless-steel sprockets

Stainless steel sprockets for synchronous belt drive systems carry high horsepower ratings.

Features & benefits

  • Taper-Lock bushing system allows for easy sprocket installation and removal; resist rust, foam degreasers, and caustic washdown solutions

  • With Poly Chain GT Carbon synchronous belts, provide a low-maintenance alternative for roller chain systems

  • Don't release contaminants associated with lubricated sprockets and chains

  • PowerGrip rubber synchronous belts are available with steel, sintered steel, grey iron, and ductile iron for durability

Synchronous belt drives

Synchronous Plus drives combine a high-capacity belt with a flexible, dual-sprocket design with both metric and standard-tapped holes.

Features & benefits

  • 50% more horsepower capacity than standard construction high-torque drives

  • Belt dimensions from 5 to 20-mm pitch

  • Allow for use of smaller, lighter sprockets

  • Helically wound fiberglass cords, chemically treated and designed for length stability, flexibility, and tensile strength for shock loads

  • Precise tooth formation and accurate spacing for uniform transmission of power with resistance to tooth jump and shear
