More Drive V & Wedge Belt Information
Vee belts (also known as V-belt or wedge belts) are an early solution that solved the slippage and alignment problem, first developed in 1917. The shape of the belt tracks in a mating groove in the Vee pulley (or sheave), with the result that the belt cannot slip off. The belt also tends to wedge into the groove as the load increases — the greater the load, the greater the wedging action — improving torque transmission and making the vee belt an effective solution.
They can be supplied at various fixed lengths or as a segmented section i.e. nutlink, where the segments are linked (spliced) to form a belt of the required length. For high-power requirements, two or more vee belts can be joined side-by-side in an arrangement called a multi-V, running on matching multi-groove vee pulleys. The strength of these belts is obtained by reinforcements with fibres like steel or polyester.
