The BRECOFLEXmove® is a timing belt specifically designed for high performance drives and traction drives with a particularly high stiffness requirement. A newly developed Steel cord tension member increases belt stiffness and tear-resistance, making transmission of stronger forces possible. The tooth flank geometry has been optimised through the Finite Element Method (FEM). This leads to an optimisation of the contact pressure distribution and reduces the work of friction between the timing belts and tooth washer, thus minimising wear. In addition, a friction optimised laminate coating is applied to the tooth side.
