Belt Drive Manufacturers


With the recent addition of Swati Pulley and Laifual Drive belt products to the range of products available through YB Components, we thought it a good time to highlight a few of the long established variable speed belt manufacturers whose products are also available to ship fast and free all over the UK and the rest of the world.

Carlisle Ultimax Belts

The quiet and efficient Carlisle premium quality synchronous drive belts require little maintenance and consistently outperform similar belts in relevant high torque and high tension tests. The Carlisle Air-Cooled Heat Exchanger (ACHE) belt includes a unique Z-shaped twist which acts as the air-cooling heat exchanger component. They also have a vertical shaft which helps reduce wear on the underside of the belt.

The Carlisle Cotton Drive one-inch pitch timing belts can be used in place of OEM belts on cotton gin drives. They can operate in harsh conditions and feature tensile members constructed with Ultra-Cord which provides them with exceptional dimensional stability.

The dual-sided Carlisle Dual Synchronous belt has a 100% load capacity on both sides of the belt which also have excellent flexibility and efficiency during operation. The advanced polymer construction and strong fibreglass cords give this belt impressive strength, while the teeth also have a nylon facing to increase resistance to wear and tear.

Other Carlisle variable speed belts include the Panther and the XT Panther belts, the Synchro-Cog HT Belt and the Synchro-Cog Timing Belt.

Ave Chains Modular Belts

Ave Chains make a number of modular belts that include a non-metallic chain belt to produce a stable and smooth-running surface for the loads being transported along the conveyor system. Ave modular belts are available in a variety of configurations, with popular variations including the open mesh and flat top varieties. The open mesh is better at draining liquid while the flat top is better at circulating air.

These modular belts are also popular because of their ability to form loops, inclines and spirals. The flexibility and high temperature resistance that Ave Chains manufacture into their modular belts make them suitable for a wide range of applications and they are another product that requires little maintenance.

Berges Speed Belts

The Berges speed drives available through variable speed belt suppliers YB Components are excellent at minimising friction while still producing high torque.

Berges speed belts are renowned for their suitability for a wide variety of applications, especially when the mechanical variable speed drive must be robust and efficient. The products Berges manufacture are designed to be easy to maintain so you can rely on them remaining in good working order throughout their life spans.
