INDUSTRIAL POWER TRANSMISSION BELTS: HEAVY-DUTY V BELTS
Statewide Bearings are Australia’s leading suppliers of heavy-duty V-belts, including industrial V belts and machinery V belts, as well as timing belts.
Stocking only the highest quality range of industrial power transmission belts, industrial belt tensioners and tension testers, our products are renowned for their reliability and longevity.
Belts and pulleys are core machinery elements in a number of industries, from manufacturing to mining/quarries and agriculture. They act as a core source of motion or power transmission in machines (a conveyor belt for example).
Belts (often made of rubber) are looped over a number of circular pulleys that rotate. The pulley/belt dynamic can have upwards of two to three pulleys rotating a belt that can be flat or twisted.
There are also a number of different belt styles. Timing belts have ‘teeth’ or ‘notches’ inside which fit into a matching toothed pulley. This ensures no slippage, meaning the belt runs at a constant speed. These can be used in place of chains and gears as they work in the same way but require less lubrication and make less noise.
V Belts, or Vee Belts, take this notion a step further, as their ‘teeth grooves’, instead of being straight/rectangular are triangular/trapezoidal – giving them their ‘V belt’ name. The unique shape of the Gates belts ensures minimum slippage.
Ribbed belts, on the other hand, have lengthwise grooves that can distribute tension across the surface of the pulley to increase the durability and lifespan of the parts and reduce vibration. Other styles include flat belts, round belts, rope drives, multi-groove belts and film belts.
