Ribbed Belts – Hutchinson

These types of belts combine the high flexibility of flat belts with the high performance of V-belts.
The parallel ribs that are V shaped are made out of wear resistant material. The high strength tension cord allows for many applications of the belt. These belts come in a number of profiles with each profile having specific applications.

SPECIFICATIONS
& PROPERTIES

The top surface of ribbed belts is made from wear resistant polychloroprene rubber compound while the tension cord is a low stretch polyester cord. Some of the features of ribbed belts include:

  • Small pulley diameter
  • The cord is embedded in a rubber adhesive mixture
  • Low noise and vibration
  • Good dynamic power transmission ability
  • High belt speeds
  • Can withstand shock load as well as short term overload
  • High transmission ratio
  • Cooler running with high drive efficiency
  • By increasing the number of ribs, power performance can be improved
