Continental is launching a new generation of polyurethane (PU) timing belts in the Truly Endless product line onto the market – under the name Synchromotion. Steel cord reinforced polyurethane belts are considered to be extremely flexible, abrasion resistant and durable. The new Synchromotion offers a choice between eleven different profiles in the length range 1,500 to 14,500 mm with a maximum width of 100 mm.
According to Continental the Synchromotion can be manufactured in individual lengths, down to one tooth. This gives customers greater design flexibility and additional freedom, for example in terms of center distances. “This allows us to offer our industrial customers a significantly larger standard range, and they can now access the full product portfolio from a single source,” points out Sascha Heyde, who heads product management for industrial drive belts at Continental. The numerous profiles available enable replacement on existing equipment. The structure of the white belt reflects that of
the Synchroflex, a PU timing belt already established on the market by Continental for the lower and medium power range with an endless tension member made from steel. The plastic is identical to Continental’s polyurethane for extruded products. The Synchromotion is suitable for conveyance and power transmission drives across the power range. The Synchromotion will be produced at the PU-specialized Dannenberg plant. Each order is produced to customer specification.
