Gates Mectrol self tracking timing belts have all the capabilities of standard urethane timing belts but utilize guides to eliminate any lateral movement. Our range of specially designed urethane V guides are notched along belt length to provide optimum flexibility around pulleys.
Gates Mectrol produces V-guided belts in two constructions:
Fabricated - any of four V-guides can be added to any pitch belt in any width, length combination
Integral - the V-guide is integrally molded to specific belt pitches for greater strength and consistency.
Conveying applications where pulley flanges are not acceptable
Reduce or eliminate any belt "wander" by providing continuous guiding along conveyor length
Our standard pulleys may be easily modified to include specific bores, keyways and setscrews. Custom pulley work may include self-tracking features, special materials and plating. We also offer special pitches upon request to accommodate high precision, zero-backlash applications.
