STEIGENTECH presents maintenance-free polyurethane timing belt for improved dimensional stability
At Hanover 2019, STEIGENTECH launches the STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belts range. With excellent abrasion- and shear-resistance, the polyurethane timing belts offer high strength and tractive resistance. Incorporating a variety of graded steel cords in the high-grade polyurethane construction results in a belt with better elasticity and higher flexibility. Long-lasting performance, strength, cleanliness and accuracy combine in a belt that can also be tailored to specific application requirements.
Produced using an advanced thermoset moulding process, STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belts deliver peace of mind through repeatability and consistency of quality. It is also a cleaner alternative to rubber timing belts for applications including the food and robotics industries, medical technical equipment, 3D printing machines and more. The specially-developed precision-moulding endless polyurethane process ensures high pitch precision across the entire belt. Exact replication of fine contours makes this process particularly suitable for small pitches. In tests, STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belts outperformed equivalent competitive products by up to 30% in wear resistance and strength. With a temperature range of -30 °C to +80 °C, the STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belt can operate at a sustained peak of up to 110 °C. They are also resistant to oil and extremely durable.
Helicoidal tension cords are embedded in the high-grade mixed thermoset polyurethane compound. They deliver an extremely high breaking load with low elongation, resulting in high transmission power consistently across the application. This also ensures that STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belts are maintenancefree.
Encapsulated within the polyurethane layers, steel wires form a tensile cord that delivers an extremely high breaking load, with low elongation to reach high transmission power.
With exceptional dimensional stability and rigidity, the high-grade mixed thermoset polyurethane compound provides excellent abrasion resistance and resistance to wear, fatigue and environmental conditions. The STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belt is non static conductive, providing a maximum oil and ozone resistance and meets RoHs and REACH requirements.
Available in imperial and in metric classical trapezoidal as well as in curvilinear tooth profiles, the STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belt is manufactured to the highest international manufacturing and quality standards available (DIN/ISO 5296 Parts 1&2 / IP24 RMA-MPTA (Imperial) and DIN 7721 - ISO 13050 / IP27 RMA-MPTA (Metric)).
The STEIGENTECH POWERPLUS™ PU Timing Belt is available with aramid or polyester cords for special applications, such as non-magnetic, water-exposed and high flexible drives. The range offers 300+ references and sizes.
