  • Tension in timing-belt drives
    A urethane timing belt moves samples into position in this CAD simulation of an automated blood sampling machine. Timing-belt drives transmit torque and motion from a driving to a driven pulley or force to a linear actuator. They may also convey a load placed on the belt surface. A drive under load
  • Low Cost Automation Tutorial, Timing Belt Drive
    Discussed here is accuracy requirements of stepper motors using a simple single axis robot with a timing belt and a stepper motor, including calculating rotational accuracy needed for the motor.
  • White Paper Download: Belt Drives
    Timing belts are parts of synchronous drives which represent an important category of drives. Characteristically, these drives employ the positive engagement of two sets of meshing teeth. Hence, they do not slip and there is no relative motion between the two elements in mesh. Due to this feature
  • Economical Retrofits Outshine Servo Systems
    A central impression press made with a mechanical drive train uses gears, a timing belt, and chains. These machines develop registration problems over time as gears wear. Your old web-printing press can be upgraded in order to run different materials without incurring the cost of buying a new
  • Synchronous Belts
    Potential for slip in conventional belts prevents their use where input and output shafts must be synchronized. Synchronous belts, often referred to as timing belts, were developed to overcome this limitation. They have a toothed profile that mates with corresponding grooves in the pulleys, thereby
  • Torque, Speed, and Yogurt Cups
    varies throughout two of them. Servomotors driving the platens are coupled through timing-belt pulleys and gearboxes to a driveshaft. The driveshaft works through a crank that generates a toggle motion and moves the platen up and down. The toggle mechanism is nonlinear, starting with a high gear ratio
  • Motion Reference Guide: Software Keeps Linear-Stage Integration Straight
    into a protracted and painstaking trial-and-error process. The amount of time and effort needed to set up, configure, and commission these devices led many designers to alternative options, such as pneumatic actuators or timing-belt drives, when a linear motor or ball screw would have been the better
