Flat High Efficiency Belting

We offer various types of Flat High Efficiency Belting to suit:
The inertial force and shock loading of the drive,
The abruptness of the drive start,
The presence of water/dust/oil/grease.

The efficiency of the drive can be highly tuned by knowing a few design details.

Fans for ventilation are generally operated for long time periods. So, using a flat belt save energy compared to a multi-v belt. A flat belt also runs quieter. And cleaner, which means you can run it directly in the air stream without shedding rubber particles like a multi-v belt will do.

Hydroelectric generators driven with a flat belt can reliably achieve an output of 1500 kW, in spite of fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

Piston compressors continuously shock the drive belt. But a nylon-core flat belt easily absorbs the shock, and delivers impressively smooth, low-oscillation running. Even at high speed. This means longer belt life. For larger compressors with long operating times, the high efficiency flat belt can save significant energy.

The high spindle speeds of certain milling machines in the tooling industry produce belt speeds of up to 330 feet per second. Under these conditions, only a flat belt can transmit the full motor power. And the smooth, low vibration running of the belt ensures a clean cut.

To achieve both precision and surface finish quality of a sliding lathe workpiece, a vibration-free power transmission is of decisive importance. That is why flat belts are predominantly used there.

Rotary printing of graphics requires consistent rotation and accurate registration. Since the effective diameter of a flat belt drive is precisely defined and remains unchanged during operation, the power transmission ratio remains accurate regardless of speed and load. Angular velocity oscillations can be reduced to a minimum by using a high modulus aramid fiber reinforced flat belt.

In the punishing world of stone crushers, only robust components like a nylon core flat belt can take the strain.
