Now also available in 15 mm pitch
Mulco expands its high performance timing belt family “move” by adding a new 15 mm pitch. The endless variant of BRECOFLEXmove AT15 is available with immediate effect. As an open length variant, BRECOmove AT15 will be available from the third quarter of 2018.
Like the high performance timing belt “move” in 10 mm pitch launched in 2017, the most important development objective of this belt with 15 mm pitch was increased belt stiffness. This is particularly important because the load bearing capacity of a timing belt is not limited by its tear resistance but by its stiffness. The performance limit is reached when the elongated belt pitch is so great under load that it can no longer smoothly mesh with the pulley.
In spite of the stronger tension members in the AT15 move timing belt, the standard pulleys can still be used. The tooth flank was additionally FEM optimised to ensure clean and wear-free transmission of the larger forces. Laminate on the tooth side reduces the friction and ensures even smoother belt running. A smaller minimum diameter with and without contraflexure meets the customer requirement for more compact drives.
The new BRECOFLEXmove timing belts are available in the widths 25, 32, 50, 75 and 100 mm. Apart from transmitting larger torques, the belts also offer customers higher positional accuracy and shorter settling times in dynamic drives. Alternatively, steeper starting and stopping ramps are also possible. Depending on the application, narrower timing belts and pulleys can be used, reducing costs and installation space.
