SYNCHROCHAIN® – The POLY CHAIN Compatible Belt
Designed for high dynamic stresses up to 40 m/s
CONTI® SYNCHROCHAIN is fully compatible with GATES POLY CHAIN® pulleys and designed to offer a real alternative to chain drives and existing POLYCHAIN® solutions. CONTI® SYNCHROCHAIN belts combine high tear resistance with exceptional tensile strength, making it one of the world’s best performers among today’s timing belts.
This high-performance timing belt, with its newly developed CTD profile, makes extreme applications possible. Cause of its original design and selected materials ensures reliable power transmission for high torques and high dynamic stressing. As the first belt of this high-performance class it permits reverse flexing in multi-pulley drives and is therefore the ideal alternative to chain drives approximately half the strength of the parent material
CONTI® SYNCHROCHAIN timing belts were designed for applications in drives with extremely high acceleration forces as well as for the reliable transmission of high torque at low speeds. To deal with the impact loads occurring in the case of abrupt acceleration and deceleration, the belt employs a compound which absorbs even maximum surges and guarantees the maintenance-free functioning of pulsating drives in continuous service.
A timing belt with tear strength and resistance to tooth deformation is required for transmission for high torque at low speeds, the CONTI® SYNCHROCHAIN is equipped with ultra-strong aramid tensile members. Embedded in the heavy-duty compound, these tensile members cope with extremely high starting torques permanently and reliably. In addition, it is especially well suited to transmission of lots of power in applications involving a high dynamic load at belt speeds of up to 40 m/s.
