Timing Belt Drives

Timing Belt DrivesTB Wood’s timing belt drives are a highly efficient job-proved medium for mechanical power transmission. These drives combine the advantages of chain and gear drives with the advantages of belted drives, without the limitations usually associated with these drives. Timing belt drives deliver savings in weight, space and construction without a sacrifice in efficiency, and they are adaptable to almost any kind of power transmission drive.


Product Features

  • Positive--Slip Proof Positive grip of belt teeth with sprocket grooves eliminates slippage and speed variation
  • No Lubrication Absence of metal-to-metal contact eliminates the need for the cost and nuisance of lubrication systems
  • Wide Capacity Range The load capacities of synchronous belt drives range from subfractional horsepower to 600 HP and up
  • Constant Angular Velocity Speed is transferred uniformly without chordal rise and fall of the pitch line
  • Compact Design Small sprockets, short centers, narrow belts, high capacity -- all inherent features combine for a reduction in space requirements
  • Minimum Backlash Advanced design reduces backlash between the teeth and stock belts and the grooves of stock sprockets to a minimum
  • High Efficiency Inherent friction elimination, lack of high tension, and thin belt construction translate into high efficiency
  • Light Weight High horsepower-to-weight ratio
  • Economical Operation No motor bases, lubrication systems or tensioning devices required
