RPP Type Timing Belts

VARIBELT*VX® RPP Type Timing Belts are best known to be high precision and high power belts. When compared to other Imperial timing belts, they can convey more power within the same width or can enable the user to reduce the width to transmit the same amount of power.

The most differentiating feature of VARIBELT*VX® RPP Type Timing Belts is the Parabolic tooth structure which is not only designed to eliminate belt slip or jump but also to reduce noise.

The parabolic tooth profile has a progressive pressure angle, allowing to have a taller tooth with the same pitch length, which brings the following advantages;

• The friction between the pulley and the belt and the wear and heat caused by the torque peaks, is reduced
• Higher power transmission is enabled
• Noise is reduced
• Belt jump and slippage is eliminated
• More resistance to tooth shear is achieved
• Less pre-tension is achieved
• Temperature range: -30oC to +100oC

The groove on top of the tooth brings;

  1. More precise sitting of the belt in the pulley groove 2. Smoother engagement
  2. Enhanced stress distribution
  3. Reduced noise
  4. Lessened wear due to less slippage

VARIBELT*VX® RPP Type Timing Belts are designed to be interchangeable with existing deep groove profiles and to run on pulleys according to ISO 13050. Aramid Cord construction is available.

Used in various industries demanding exact power transmission;
Robotic machines, textile machinery, machine tools, compressors, CNC machines, printers, scanners, currency counting machines, wood processing machines, paper machinery, tobacco industry machinery, aluminum extrusion machinery, ceramic, glass, brick and stone machinery, fitness equipment, packaging machinery, recycling machinery, food industry machinery, commercial and domestic appliances.

Now made with EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer), a synthetic rubber with outstanding properties, VARIBELT VX® RPP Type Timing Belts are static conductive, more durable, and more resistant to heat, hardening, and glazing than ever before.

Varibelt VX® TIMING BELTS exceed USA RMA published ratings levels.

Varibelt VX® TIMING BELTS are manufactured to meet the same RMA/ISO Standards as all other major American or European Manufacturers’ belts of the same type. Designed to perform at identical or higher levels, Varibelt VX TIMING BELTS are dimensionally and functionally equivalent to TIMING BELTS produced by major American and European manufacturers.
Aramid (Kevlar®) Cord construction is available. We can manufacture all timing belts with Aramid (Kevlar®) Cord construction.
