Rubber Synchronous Belts

Rubber Synchronous Belts

Our dedication to continuous research and development has led to our most efficient rubber synchronous belts yet. Thanks to their dramatically reduced weight, our complete line of rubber synchronous belts are easier to install and replace. Say no to lubrication on metal wear. Say yes to increased energy efficiency.

Reduce both acquisition costs and transaction costs by designing with PowerGrip® GT®3. The PowerGrip® GT®3 belt has two times the rating of competitive RPP® belts, and its predecessors PowerGrip® GT® and HTD® belts. PowerGrip® GT®3 drive systems offer the largest selection of belts and sprockets in the industry. At reduced widths, PowerGrip® GT®3 belts can be used as a direct replacement for most 8mm and 14mm pitch standard rubber RPP® and HTD® synchronous belts.

  • Eliminates lubrication and re-tensioning to reduce maintenance and labor as compared to roller chain drives.
  • Fiberglass tensile cord provides high strength, excellent flex life, and high resistance to elongation.
  • Gates patented tooth profile is designed for use with a specific sprocket groove profile. The sprocket groove-belt tooth combination increases capacity, while improving registration.
  • Neoprene body provides protection against grime, grease, oil, and moisture.
  • Nylon tooth facing provides a durable wear surface for long service life.
  • PowerGrip® GT®3 ACHE belts are available in 14mm pitch. A single twist cord helps prevent the belt from moving downward on vertical shaft ACHE applications.
