This Gates Synchro-Power belt is a toothed timing belt, also known as a synchronous belt or camshaft belt, with a metric pitch and a strong, stiff tooth for linear positioning and motion control. It is made of polyurethane for resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and wear. It has steel tensile cord for strength, durability, and resistance to elongation, and the cords are helically wound for strength and long life. The endless, one-piece urethane construction of the belt adds strength, and it has a temperature range of -22 to + 176 degrees F (-30 to + 80 degrees C). This Synchro-Power timing belt is suitable for use with office machines, machine tools, postage equipment, sewing machines, vending machines, outdoor power equipment, HVAC equipment, food processing, oil field applications, agricultural applications, and wood, paper, sand, and gravel applications.
TIming belts have teeth on the underside of the belt that join with the grooves in a rotating pulley to transmit power at a constant speed without slippage. They are made of compounded rubber and are reinforced lengthwise with fiberglass cords for added strength. The belts require minimal re-tensioning and maintenance, no lubrication, and provide quiet operation. Timing belts are used in industrial applications such as agriculture, textile manufacturing, mining, and printing machinery, and consumer applications such as office equipment, home appliances, and automobiles.
Gates manufactures power transmission belts as well as hydraulic and fluid power products. The company was founded in 1917 and is headquartered in Denver, CO.
