Dual sprocket design drives
April 1, 2009
TB Wood’s Synchronous Plus drives offer a dual sprocket design featuring both metric and standard-tapped holes coupled with a high-capacity Synchronous Plus belt. As a result, the Synchronous Plus drive delivers 50% more horsepower capacity than standard-construction, high-torque drives, according to the company. The design allows for the use of smaller, lighter weight sprockets, which are drilled for both inch and metric hardware. Synchronous Plus belts feature helically-wound, fiberglass cords that are chemically treated and designed to assure stability, flexibility and high tensile strength for shock loads. Load capacities are available for a wide range of torque loads.
