Made to order Multi Groove Pulleys with short lead times
Multi-Rib belts, like the Poly V® and Multi V®, feature lengthwise groove and provide superb drive by adhesion. Compared with conventional belts of the same width, Multi-Rib belts optimize the contact area, giving you increased power transfer. A thin cross section profile allows for use with smaller pulleys than standard V-belts.
Drive widths can be reduced because there is increased surface engagement allowing for increased horsepower per inch of belt width compared to standard V-belts. Even in specialty applications, this belt and pulley combination operates quietly and with minimal vibration.
