The timing belt manufacturer BRECO Antriebstechnik, based in Porta Westfalica, Germany, is now making a new high-performance PU timing belt available Europe-wide through the sales partner network of Mulco-Europe EWIV. In addition to the AT10 and AT15 timing belt pitches, the BRECOFLEXmove AT8 is the first endless extruded PU timing belt with an 8 mm pitch available to engineers.
BRECOFLEXmove AT8 demonstrates its strengths particularly where strong dynamics and precision with a low polygon effect are required. Drives that could only use HTD8M timing belts to date can now be designed with an AT8 “move” as an alternative solution without requiring any changes to the drive geometry.
The stiffness of a BRECOFLEXmove AT8 timing belt has clear advantages, in particular wherever there are exacting requirements for positional accuracy.
BRECOFLEXmove polyurethane timing belts generally have an optimised profile flank geometry and a wear- and friction-reducing lamination on the tooth side. The result is a significant increase of the tooth shear strength, allowing a narrower timing belt drive structure.
