The Rubber Timing Belt is composed of an annular belt with an equidistant tooth profile on the inner peripheral surface and a wheel having a corresponding fit. It combines the advantages of belt drive, chain drive and gear drive. During rotation, the power is transmitted by engaging the teeth with the teeth of the wheel.

Timing belt is with three categories: standard / American, metric and special belts, here are two of them. The US belt is divided into two types: single-sided belt and double-sided belt. Single-sided synchronous belts have six different tone measurements. It is to be noted that these belts must have pulleys corresponding to the pitch. You can not use the MXL belt on an XL pulley. You can not use standard timing belt on metric pulleys. Standard teeth on the flat teeth, the indicators are mostly round.

A double-sided belt is usually the hardest to buy a belt because the number is usually worn after the belt is running. The double-sided belt has four different pitch. Those lengths are DXL, DL, DH and DXH. The main difference between the two styles of belts is the back of the belt. A single-sided synchronous belt, the bottom of the belt only teeth. On both sides of the belt, the teeth are at the top and bottom. Some machines require the belt to wrap back another pulley.

Now we can move to the metric belt. These belts are not necessarily common, but there are many different styles of metric synchronous belts. There are five different types of metric timing belts, including double-sided, standard HDT belts, T-belts, STPD / STS timing belts and HPPD / RPP timing belts. All of which have unique characteristics, so that they can not be exchanged with other metric belts.

There is also a type of metric belt that is a T-belt. Due to the shape of the teeth, this style of the belt will make some people confused. They have a square tooth design. The main difference between the two teeth is the depth of the teeth and the spacing of the teeth.
