The Two Types of Timing Belt Strength

There are two different types of timing belt strength and they are independent of each other. They are tooth shear strength and tensile cord strength. To correctly size a belt,  both strengths  should be higher than the application strength requirements.  1. Tooth Shear Strength Tooth Shear Strength is the force necessary to permanently deform the […]
