What are the types of belts?

Though there are many types of belts used these days, yet the following are important from the subject point of view:-

Types of belts are used in machining operation.

1. Flat belt

The flat belt is mostly used in the factories and workshops, where a moderate amount of power is to be transmitted, from one pulley to another, when the two pulleys are not more than 10 m apart.

2. V-belt

The V-belt is mostly used in the factories and workshops where a great amount of power is to be transmitted, from One pulley to another, when the two pulleys are very near to each other.

3. Circular belt or rope

The circular belt or rope is mostly used in the factories and workshops, where a great amount of power is to be transmitted, from one pulley to another, when the two pulleys are more than 5 m apart.

If a huge amount of power is to be transmitted, then a single belt may not be sufficient. In such a case, wide pulleys (for V-belts or circular belts) with a number of grooves are used. Then one belt in each groove is provided to transmit the required amount of power from one pulley to another.
