Metric V Belts

Metric V-Belts:

Lately, metric V-belts have become more widely-utilized in machinery applications. More industrial machines have been introduced to the U.S. and the rest of the world from European companies. Metric V-belts are simply that: Wedge belts with a metric pitch and metric length measurement.

Metric V-belts can generate up to 50 to 100 percent more horsepower than the classic-sectioned belts with a similar width on top. This is achieved by the dimensional changes, better cord construction and optimum placing of the cord line. These metric wedge V-belt features provide the best support to the cord while it is in motion. For the most efficient performance of wedge drive, it is essential that the proper tension be maintained in the drive. Failure to do so will cause the wedged design to become ineffective.

Metric V-belts are used in many various applications and industries. They are used on industrial water vacuums, as well as commercial and industrial fans. Metric V-belts are also used on printing presses and commercial printing machines. Anywhere you might find a metric-sized pulley is a candidate for a replacement metric belt.
