More and more machine designers are using countless Rubber Timing Belt to replace flat belts in their device designs for accurate product movement. However, changing the rubber timing belt on many machines can be very time consuming. Often, these machines are designed not to allow replacement of the ring belt without significantly disassembling the machine, resulting in considerable downtime and lost production.

When the rotation of two different axes requires precise connection, use the rubber timing belt. The normal power transmission belt and pulley are smooth, so the belt sometimes slides on the track (one shaft will rotate and the other shaft remains stationary). On the other hand, the rubber timing belt and pulley have teeth that rotate the shaft and prevent misalignment. In the car, the timing belt connects the engine crankshaft to the valve camshaft, ensuring that the valve opens and closes at the correct time. If the belt is torn or broken, the valve may open at the wrong time and destroy the engine.

Width, number of teeth (asphalt), material, etc. There are many different variables. Depending on your project specifications, each manufacturer will have different recommendations, taking into account the shaft speed, power transmission, the environment and other issues. The belt is unnecessarily oversized - the larger harder the belt may cause a smaller drive motor. Another tricky part of the design is to figure out the length of the belt. You need to know the distance between the centers of the two axes and the pitch diameter of the two pulleys, which is usually specified by the manufacturer.

Most rubber timing belts provide mechanical needle connector options that can be easily replaced in a matter of seconds with a simple tool without removing the machine. This option uses a precision cut square finger joint with a stainless steel connection pin mounted on the width of each tooth. The mechanical pin connector is suitable for most of all conveyor applications, including belts with various covers, backing and profile attachments. Run on existing pulleys, have the same minimum pulley requirements as existing pulleys, and can be used with rear bend pulleys.
