Automotivedrivingbelt manufactures various types and sizes of Rubber V Belt for the widest range of applications.

For high-power requirements, two or more vee belts can be joined side-by-side in an arrangement called a multi-V, running on matching multi-groove sheaves. This is known as a multiple-V-belt drive (or sometimes a "classical V-belt drive").

Just because V-belt or synchronous belt drives are prevalent does not mean everyone knows how to care for them. The “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality often prevails, which can be costly. A misaligned or improperly tensioned drive invites downtime.

Begin thinking PM—preventive maintenance. The benefits will be:

Longer service life

Trouble-free operation

Improved uptime and productivity

Energy conservation

More efficient power transmission

Longer component life

Basic PM programs include:

A safe working environment

Regular drive inspections

Proper drive installation

Proper belt storage and handling
