A Transmission Belt is a combination of several elements to ensure the best performance possible. The material used to create a transmission belt is critical to the success of a transmission system. The belt’s performance depends on the quality of the metal used and the manufacturing process used to construct it. Steel manufacturers must continually evaluate their production processes to come up with the most advanced quality equipment.
A Transmission Belt includes a steel coil and a tungsten sleeve that are installed between two pieces of cast iron or other low-alloy material. A Transmission Belt may be designed as a single piece but is usually made of two or more pieces to provide a better match between the coil and the sleeve. The material used to create a transmission belt is critical to its function; therefore, manufacturers must perform a series of quality checks before each belt is produced.Read more
