Belts and Pulleys are used to transmit rotary motion between two or more parallel shafts. Accu offers a large range of Belt and Pulley components for a number of specialist applications, including continuous power transmission, speed conversion, and precision actuation. Belts and Pulleys are capable of transferring rotary motion over long distances, and are generally lighter, quieter, and more efficient than alternative transmission systems such as Gears.
Components such as Spacers or Shim Washers may be suitable to calibrate and precisely space a pulley from a given surface.
T and AT Type
Metric T Type and AT Type Timing Belts and Pulleys are toothed, allowing them to transmit rotary motion at a set speed. These components are designed to precisely synchronise the speed of two shafts.
Metric HTD Type Belts and Pulleys are toothed components which are designed for heavy duty applications. HTD Belts feature curvilinear (rounded) Polypropylene Rubber teeth for enhanced tooth contact and reduced likelihood of slipping or tooth jumping.
MXL, L, XL and H Type
Imperial MXL, XL, L and H Type Belts are toothed Timing Belts, manufactured in imperial sizes. The main difference between these four products is the pitch of the teeth, which ascends in size order of MXL, XL, L, then H Type.
Vee Type Belts and Pulleys are wedge-shaped, allowing them to be self-centralising during operation. Toothless Belts are ideal for high-speed, low-torque applications.
Flat Belts are one of the most basic and straightforward methods of transmitting rotary motion. These belts are most effective under low torque.
Taper Locking Bushes
Taper Locking Bushes are a universal mounting component, and are compatible with a range of Taper Locking Pulley types.
