COGGED V-BELT IN DRIVE FOR MACHINERY DUTIES

02-03-2020

Available now from Optibelt Australia, the Super XE-Power Pro is a revolutionary range of EPDM cogged V-belts for use in a wide range of machinery from compressors and pumps to lathes and CNC machine tools.

The design of the belt features a novel moulded cogged profile that greatly improves durability, flexibility and power transmission over previous generations of belts.

And the high-modulus polyester cords used in the construction of the belt resist stretching, making the V-belt fully maintenance free. This reduces downtime, improves drive efficiency, and increases belt power capacity by up to 20% over other high-performance cogged V-belts.

The new tooth shape allows the Super XE-Power Pro to be used on pulleys with extremely small diameters, making it suitable use in smaller machines. And, unlike competing products, the belt is also suitable for back bend idlers, which enables its use in ultra-compact drive units.

The combination of the low-stretch cords used in conjunction with a tooth form optimised for dynamic loads gives the Super XE-Power Pro extremely high power handling capabilities. And the inclusion of an innovative red cushion compound gives a perfect adhesion for tension cords and high load capacity.

The EPDM transverse-fibre-laden compound gives the belt a wide operational temperature range from -40 to +120°C, and it runs extremely quietly and smoothly - even at high speeds.
