Timing belt is a kind of belt that is often used in industrial production.


    There are two types of timing belt teeth, which are trapezoidal teeth and arc teeth. The timing belt is a rectangular strip having a uniform width and thickness, and the outer surface is provided with anti-slip strip teeth arranged in parallel, and these non-slip strip teeth are perpendicular to the strip edges. The timing belt is a steel belt or glass fiber as a strong layer, and the outer surface is covered with a polyurethane or rubber endless belt, and the inner circumference is formed in a tooth shape to be engaged with the toothed belt pulley.


    The advantage of using the timing belt is that the timing belt can provide a good cushioning effect on the shock and vibration generated during the operation of the machine, so that it produces less noise, and secondly it does not require lubrication, so that in some high-speed transmission In the machine, the timing belt can play a very good role. The timing belt requires a small installation space and meets some machines with limited installation space.


    The disadvantage of the timing belt is that in industrial production, the timing belt is easy to come into contact with some chemical products, such as some lubricating oil, etc. during mechanical operation. Coupled with heat, the rubber material on the timing belt will age and damage, so that the timing belt will be deformed, elongated, and cracked. At this time, it is prone to the phenomenon of tooth skipping, which affects industrial production.


    From the advantages and disadvantages of the timing belt, the timing belt still has a lot of room for improvement. In industrial production, the timing belt can play a big role. As science and technology become more advanced, the quality of the timing belt will also become more and more excellent.
