Timing Belt Tooth Profile Comparison
Timing belt tooth profiles can be categorized into the following timing belt group summaries:
Trapezoidal Timing Belt Tooth Profiles
Curvilinear Timing Belt Tooth Profiles
Modified Curvilinear Timing Belt Tooth Profiles
- PowerGrip GT2
- PolyChain GT
The desired characteristics of the timing belt tooth profile can be broken down into the following:
- High Torque
- High Speed
- Registration (Positioning Accuracy)
These desired timing belt tooth profile characteristics are what a designer should look at in terms of the timing belt application they are designing for.
Timing belt applications can be summarized into the following.
- Linear Positioning
- Power Transmission
The characteristics of the timing belt tooth profile can then be further assigned to a specific timing belt application.
|Conveying||Linear Positioning||Power Transmission||Other|
The characteristics of the timing belt tooth profile can also be associated with the timing belt group segments.
|Trapezoidal (MXL,XL,L,H,XH,XXH,T,AT)||Curvilinear (HTD)||Modified Curvilinear (PowerGrip, GT2, PolyChain GT, STD, CTD)||Other|
