Nov. 12, 2014
Sponsored by Gates Corporation
Synchronous belt drives operate so efficiently that they enable up to 5% energy savings, while also reducing maintenance and downtime across applications. Read this Gates paper for a comparison of V-belts and synchronous belts, to learn how to calculate potential energy savings, and to estimate the payback period after a drive conversion. Plus, you’ll see how one global manufacturer achieved savings of over $34,000 with synchronous belt drives.
