Rubber Synchronous Belts - PowerGrip® HTD® 8M, 14M & 20M
The curvilinear PowerGrip® HTD® tooth geometry eliminates stress concentration at tooth roots and allows higher power capacity and longer life. PowerGrip® HTD® 8M, 14M and 20M belts are used in high performance drives in the machine tool, paper and textile industries where durability and low maintenance are required.
Identification
Three part number on the back of the belt indicating belt length, pitch and belt width
Construction
  • Special curvilinear tooth form improves stress distribution and allows higher overall loading.
  • Precisely formed and accurately spaced elastomeric teeth ensure correct positioning in the pulley grooves.
  • Tough nylon facing protects the tooth surfaces.
  • Tensile member provides the required strength combined with excellent flex life and high resistance to elongation.
  • Durable elastomeric backing protects against environmental pollution as well as frictional wear if power is transmitted from the back of the belt.
  • 8M and 14M pitch belts conform to ISO 13050.
Advantages
  • Load capacities up to 1000 kW.
  • No slippage. PowerGrip® HTD® belt teeth mesh smoothly with pulley grooves, reducing speed variations.
  • Wide speed range.
  • Economical operation. No lubrication needed, no need for adjustment due to stretch and wear.
  • High mechanical efficiency. The belt construction minimises heat buildup and, since friction is not required to transmit the load, belttensions are reduced.
  • Constant driven speeds.
  • Long trouble-free service life (because of excellent abrasion resistance) in many applications where metal components like chains and gears wear out in a matter of months.

For correct usage of belt please request Gates’ Synchronous Belt Drive Design Manual (E2/20099).
