What power transmission belts does MIR provide?
MIR provides power transmission and drive belts in a broad range of power options, from low-speed high-torque applications to the fastest tangential drive. We engineer both flat power transmission belting and synchronous power transmission belting to meet the pulley diameter and horsepower requirements of your facility.
Flat belting is a highly efficient solution for power transmission belting, boasting energy efficiencies as high as 99%. We engineer flat belting solutions to suit the inertial force and shock loading of the drive, the abruptness of the drive start and the presence of contaminants such as oil, water and grease. Flat high efficiency belts are fabricated out of highly oriented nylon, aramid fiber or polyester fiber, depending on the application. These belts are almost always spliced truly endless to endure the duress of power transmission applications, convey greater horsepower and negotiate small pulley diameters.
Our synchronous belts (different from the conveyance timing belts we provide) also function in power transmission applications. MIR fabricates truly endless synchronous belts from traditional polyurethane for high speed and high horsepower applications, while high-performance rubber synchronous belts provide high resistance to oils, coolants, ozone and heat. Traditional neoprene belts are also available with precision slitting to the exact width for your application.
MIR’s power transmission and drive belting is used in applications such as, but not limited to:
- High-speed balancing
- High-speed grinding
- Tape drives
- Serpentine drives
- Centrifuges and liquid agitators
- Slotting, planing, milling and drilling
- Light tube-winding
- Centrifugal pumps and compressors
- Small, medium and large fans
- Low output generators
- Automatic lathes
- Live roller drives
