Timing Belt - Pulleys

Contains detailed technical information on all you ever wanted to know about timing belt pulleys.  This collection of materials explores everything from timing belt pulley pitch diameters to timing belt pulley pitches and profiles.  Downloadable timing belt pulley reference materials are available to aid the end-user.


Timing Belts

Comprehensive reference materials related to timing belts are presented in this section.  Covering topics such as timing belt advantages and disadvantages,  timing belt identification and replacement, timing belt profile and pitch interchangeability and many others.  Much of the material that is presented online is available in downloadable formats allowing the end-user to create their own reference library.


Pfeifer Industries has developed a online calculator for identifying the correct timing belt length for your application and/or for calculating shaft center to center distances.  This online calculator was developed with the end-user in mind and displays all possible configurations for the variables inputted.  A downloadable calculator from Continental ContiTech is also offered that allows the end-user to calculate which timing belt is best suited for their application.
