In order to minimize this friction when using polyurethane timing belts in material transport systems, BRECOflex has developed a new product – BRECOroll.
BRECOroll is a new innovation in which rollers are integrated into the teeth of the belt. BRECOflex believes this is a breakthrough technology for automated manufacturing and material handing applications.
Toothed timing belts used for material handling tasks are usually very long. The belt’s load side almost always lies in a support rail which causes friction. With BRECOroll the rollers in the belt teeth replaces the sliding friction with rolling friction resulting in less stress on the belt and the motor.
BRECOroll is currently only available in T20 open-ended code “M” or spliced and welded code “V.”
