V-belts and wedge belts are designed to link two or more rotating shafts. They offer high efficiency, high misalignment tolerance, and are economical and virtually maintenance free. They are used to drive and control moving component parts in automotive, industrial and agricultural applications.
Our range of Classical V-belts are manufactured with the highest quality of materials, allowing them to achieve superior power ratings that offer advantages including an increased factor of safety on critical drives.
Belts manufactured with this profile come in several sizes A, B, C, D, E and Z/M.
The standards followed by PIX and Bando has put the tolerances to be much more stringent than BS 3790, which forms the basis of Classical Belts.
