Drives Deliver High Horsepower

May 6, 2009
Synchronous Plus synchronous drives offer the flexibility of a dual sprocket design coupled with a high-capacity Synchronous Plus belt, delivering 50 percent more horsepower capacity than standard-construction, high-torque drives, says the vendor. 
The design allows for the use of smaller, lighter weight sprockets, which, in many sizes, are drilled for both inch and metric hardware. Synchronous Plus belts feature helically-wound, extra-strong fiberglass cords that are chemically treated and designed to assure superior length stability, maximum flexibility, and high tensile strength for shock loads. Teeth are molded integrally with the backing that protects the tensile members. Load capacities are available for a wide range of torque loads.Altra Industrial Motionwww.AltraMotion.com815.389.6227
