Exclusive white paper: The next generation of belts

Gates report studies the improvements in synchronous belt drive systems
By Plant Engineering Staff September 20, 2007

Is a synchronous belt drive system really any match for a roller chain drive in high-torque applications? Thirty years ago one might have answered no, but that’s not the case today. New materials, construction and designs have led to synchronous belt drive systems that outperform equivalent size roller chain drives in a wide range of applications, yielding cost advantages for users, and greater design versatility for engineers.
