Edge Cogged Belts
" DARWIN "
Raw Edge Cogged Belts have higher capacity and efficiency, and they
use smaller sheaves than traditional envelope (wrapped) belts. These
belts have a higher coefficient of friction and are more aggressive,
which makes them a very efficient belt for power transmission.
Unlike conventional V -
belts, raw-edge cogged belts have no cover. Thus, the cross-sectional area
normally occupied by the cover is used for more load carrying cord. Cogs
on the inner surface of the belt increase air flow to enhance cooler
running. They also increase flexibility, allowing the belt to operate with
smaller sheaves. Darwin Raw Edge Cogged Belts are a result
of state of the art process techniques and use of superior materials.
Over 300% Longer Service Life: The
use of superior polymer compounds with special anti-degradants and
specially treated reinforcing cords result in increased life of the belt
when compared with conventional belts.
Fewer Retentions: The reinforcing Polyester cord is specially
treated and stabilized which increases the modulus and greatly reduces
stretch in service. This means fewer retentions and lower maintenance.
Greater Safety: The use of specially treated reinforcing fibres
with special chemicals in the base ensures optimum performance even in
Higher Efficiency: The moulded cog design ensures that hysteresis
losses are reduced which translates to higher overall efficiency of the
