Wilhelm Herm. Müller now also produces weld-on profiles for BRECO®-transport timing belts with a 3D printing process. Cam timing belts equipped with these weld-on profiles are more affordable and have shorter delivery times.
BRECO® polyurethane timing belts with 3D-printed profiles are a time- and cost-saving alternative, particularly for initial sampling. Costly new injection moulds with long delivery times and CNC milling of complex profile geometries is no longer required. Later changes to the profile shape can be implemented immediately, practically “overnight”, by using a 3D model.
For 3D printing, Wilhelm Herm. Müller uses a recently developed, special thermoplastic elastomer. Its mechanical properties are comparable to those of the polyurethane used in BRECO® timing belts, which ensures excellent connection of the profile with the timing belt top during welding. This has been confirmed through extensive testing, including by independent institutes.
