The PowerGrip® HTD® synchronous belt curvilinear tooth form ensures an optimised load distribution leading to high power transmission in low speed and high torque applications. PowerGrip HTD 3M and 5M belts are suitable for domestic appliances, office machines, electric hand tools and for applications in the processing and chemical industry. PowerGrip HTD 8M, 14M and 20M belts are used in high performance drives in the machine tool, paper and textile industries where durability and low maintenance are required. These synchronous belts have a larger, more robust curvilinear tooth profile for increased capacity, as compared to other timing belts.
Gates® PowerGrip® HTD® 8M, 14M, and 20M belts are designed for high performance, high capacity drives in the machine tool, paper and textile industries where durability and low maintenance are required. For domestic appliances, office machines, electric tools, and applications in the processing and chemical industries, we recommend 3M and 5M pitch HTD belts. If you need assistance determining the right belt for your application, or you need to create a custom power transmission solution, contact our team of application experts.
The curvilinear PowerGrip® HTD® tooth geometry eliminates stress concentration at tooth roots, allowing for higher power capacity and longer service life, with teeth that mesh smoothly with the pulley grooves to reduce speed variations and prevent belt slippage.
