Industrial Beltings

Industrial belts are available in many different types, from V-belts to timing belts to conveyor belting. V-belts are the most common type of belt today, and their cross-sectional shape is the “V”.

V-belts are generally made endless so that they can be used with pulleys with varying groove widths without slipping, as the belts are always under tension. Generally, v-belts require less width and tension compared to flat belts. 

A typical V-belt consists of multiple layers of rubber which are wound together, forming a continuous belt. The number of rubber layers depends on the thickness of the belt required.

If the belt is made thicker, more layers are needed to ensure that the belt is thick enough to be useful. As mentioned earlier, V-belts are often used to drive the idler pulley of a timing belt system. Because the V-belt is not driven directly, it has an advantage in terms of life span and durability.
