What is it V type Belt ?
It is for one of two reasons: Either you wnat to know what a "V - Belt"is , or (More likely) you want to know why should buy from V-Belts direct. And as it happens, these two questions have closely related answers.
A Mechanical belt is any flexible material in loop or belt shape that links rotating shafts. Thre are actually a surprising amount of reasons, ranging froma factory conveyor belt carrying loads all the way to the transmission of power. In our industry thsi belt drive system is one that we see most comonly(although if you need conveyor belt, callus and we will see what we can find. It is simple and inexpensive method of tranferring power in aneficient manner. They are so cheap, so good at what they do, that they have almost become invisible..... Right up until they break)
For many people, their first monent of belt awareness was a lot like min. I driving a car that was also probably 16 years old. And it had started making this incredibly loud, high pitched squealing, that was deleting my already marginal chances of finding a date. Anyone stepping out of a shrieking oldsmobile while waring a band uniform would hae to have a pretty sepctacular personality.
It turns out that i needed my sepentine belt replaced. Which fixed my car bu strangely, did nothing for my love life. I also learned that a serpentine belt is a type V-belt (sometimes know as v belt or even vee belt). A V-belt is so caled because of the shape of their cross section which is actually a little trapezoidal for you geometry fans.
This shape, which was pioneered by John Gates of the Gates Rubber Company, retains the efficiency of a flat belt but avoids the slippage. It also can even improve the torque transmission (In case yo have any large yachts to tow).
