July 23, 2013 – SKF offers a range of belts engineered to deliver “efficient and reliable” power transmission in drive-system applications across industries. The standard line includes V-belts in a variety of constructions (e.g. wrapped classical, wrapped narrow wedge, cogged raw edge classical, narrow wedge, and Xtra power wedge) and timing (or synchronous) belts with classical, HiTD or metric constructions. Timing belts integrate teeth enabling full engagement with pulley sprocket grooves to prevent potential slip and enhance accuracy and speed. All belts can be specified in various lengths and dimensions, with speed ratios and power ratings consistent with application requirements. Designs can be optimized with the SKF belt drive calculation program to develop the most suitable solution for a particular application.
