Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co. (www.rydell.com.au) is proud to announce the release of Gates open length synchronous belting (Gates Linear Drive Belting), which is designed for a wider range of robotics and linear motion applications.
Aside from long length AT5, AT10 as well as other steel reinforced belts, Rydell Industrial stocks Gates PolyChain GT Carbon belting, which is ideal for indexing applications thanks to its extremely high modulus carbon fiber reinforcement.
Positioning applications such as ball screws and X/Y tables that use synchronous belt drives completely rely on positioning accuracy and smooth operation. Thus, belt design engineers should take into account any elongation of the belt under load.
Low stretch linear motion belts including PolyChain are well-suited for positioning applications. Belt elongation under load within the range of half a millimeter per meter of belt length (0.05 percent) is easily achieved. A 37 mm standard belt width is rated to a minimum breaking tension of over 42,000 N.
Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co offers a free design engineering service, as well as onsite drive analysis and troubleshooting of linear motion drive belting applications.
The company also supplies drive hardware for linear motion drives including bushings, pulleys, tooth clamping plates and idlers as part of a comprehensive belt drive package.
