TB Wood’s Synchronous Plus drives offer a dual sprocket design that features both metric-and standard-tapped holes coupled with a high-capacity Synchronous Plus belt. As a result, the drive is claimed to deliver 50% more horsepower than standard-construction, high-torque drives, and allows for the use of smaller, lighter-weight sprockets. The helically wound glassfi bre cords are designed for length stability, flexibility and high tensile strength and shock loads, while the teeth are moulded integrally with the backing that protects the tensile members. Load capacities are available for a wide range of torque loads. The drive is suitable for use in precision applications in material handling, packaging and high-speed printing and for machine tools such as indexers, drill presses and boring mills.
