Our Design IQ program provides a blank canvas for designing multi-point and complex serpentine drives

You can enter the drive details in minutes then quickly and easily tweak the design to meet your requirements. Once the design is finalised you can create a PDF of the design specifications to email or print.

Design IQ can design drives for the majority of our belt lines including single and double-sided V-belt and synchronous belts.


When used together Design Flex Pro and Design IQ provide even quicker results.
Example. If replacing a fixed centre distance roller chain drive with Poly Chain GT Carbon use Design Flex Pro to find the sizing and speeds that meets your needs. Then enter these details into Design IQ to add an idler to the system and check for a belt length.
