Belt Drive Applications

“Belt Drive Applications” provides an overview of the many belts used in mechanical systems. Belt drives are essential to many applications since they transmit power, torque, and speed. A variety of belt types are available. Each functions at different speeds and transmits different amounts of power. The unique designs of different belts vary depending on application. As a result, both an application's key variables and a belt drive's capabilities must be assessed in order to choose the most appropriate belt drive. Without proper application and maintenance, belt drives will function less efficiently, increasing the chance for premature failure and downtime. Proper belt maintenance can speed production and reduce a process’s waste and cost. After taking this class, a user should be able to select appropriate belt drives and perform the maintenance necessary to ensure optimal belt drive life.
