The New Generation of AT8, AT10 and AT15 Timing Belts
75% Stiffer Tensile Strength and 30% Higher Transmittable Force
BRECOflex CO., L.L.C. translates the customers’ needs into new and expanded product lines. A common problem among customers that use high powered, high torque applications is that a traditional polyurethane timing belt just wasn’t lasting as long as needed. move-series is the solution. move-series is the latest innovations in timing belt design that offers unprecedented stiffness, strength and wear that is guaranteed to improve production and reduce machine downtime.

The move-series Difference
Unprecedented Cord Strength
Custom-engineered steel cord tension member delivers up to 75% more tensile strength than a comparable standard AT8 and AT10 tension member. AT15 tension members are specially designed to be stronger that timing belts of larger pitches.
Belt stiffness is the most important parameter in linear drives and is often the limit of drive accuracy. High move stiffness provides reduced settling times over the standard AT8, AT10 and AT15. When combined with our zero backlash drive pulley, no belt comes close to the precision of move timing belts.
Optimized Tooth Geometry
A belt drive is often limited by the tooth shear strength. To reduce this limitation, the current tooth geometry was analyzed through 3D motion FEA (Finite Element Analysis). With this information, an optimized tooth geometry was designed to reduce areas of high stress. This results in allowable belt loads that are 30% greater than other AT8, AT10 and AT15 designs. This optimal tooth geometry works with industry standard pulleys and outperforms when paired with high precision BRECOflex pulleys (hard anodized recommended).
Low Friction Tooth Facing
In addition to the optimized tooth geometry, a special laminate coating is utilized to further reduce friction between belt and pulley. This minimizes stress and wear and provides for quiet tooth engagement and smooth running.
- 30% higher transmittable force.
- permits reducing the belt width by one standard size.
- narrower drive reduces pulley and drive inertia.
- reduced wear and increased service life.
- more chain to belt conversions possible.
- drastically increases safety factor when staying with original width.
