The new Universal Belt Tension Meter SM5 is designed to measure the static tension of all belts (timing belts, flat belts, V-belts) in all belt materials, regardless of the tension member material. The SM5 is more accurate and easier to use than force deflection or elongation method.

Correct pre-tension enhances the operation of any belt drive by:
- Increasing service life
- Improving reliability
- Minimizing bearing load
- Advancing positioning accuracy
- Reducing noise level
The peripheral force (force transmitted through the belt) must be known to determine a recommended pre-tension. These recommendations are general and offered as a starting point. Adjustments may be necessary as determined by system performance. Having the Free SM5 Pretension Calculator App can help. Get it today!
