A timing belt, also called a toothed belt, is a belt used to transmit drive. The belt has teeth that engage with the teeth of the pulleys to prevent slippage. A timing belt has different standards depending on the shape and size of the blade, which must be matched to the shape of the pulley teeth. A timing belt is made of polyurethane, nitrile rubber, or other materials. When high torque transmission is required, glass fiber or aramid fiber is blended into the core wire to increase strength and reduce belt elongation.
Timing belts have no slippage and are not subject to the phase shift between two or multiple axes of rotation. This feature is utilized in a wide variety of applications.
Timing belts are used to connect crankshafts and camshafts in car engines to ensure that the regular rotation of the engine and the crankshafts and camshafts are always synchronized.
In printers and other devices that use rollers to feed paper with precision, timing belts are used to connect the motor and multiple rollers to transmit drive.
They are also used in applications where an attachment is attached to the timing belts to convert the motor's power into linear motion.
