1.Different Types Of Belt Drives.

Types of belt drives :- Belt drives are used for power transmission from crank shaft
of a vehicle or motor pulley to the rear wheel of a vehicle & another pulley respectively.
There are different types of belt drives used for all the rotating parts. In that there are
many types of power transmitting belts according to usage. These are also used for the
controlling the speeds of rotating pulleys i.e., stepped pulleys in lathe machine.

Types of belt drives

Belts are classified in many types according to usage,position,shape like flat, v-belt,
round ropes etc., but Belt drives are different from the belts, these are described as the
combination of pulleys according to their position and also their carrying or transmitting
power from one pulley to another pulley.

Belts drives are classified as


Flat belt drives

Compound belt drives

Flat belt drives


In this flat belt it can transmit the power from one pulley to another pulley where the
axes of pullies are parallel to each other. And again these flat belt drives further
classified into
1. open belt drive
2. crossed belt drive
3. Quarter turn belt drive

open belt drive

In open belt drive the axis of two pulleys are parallel to each other and there is no need
to have same size means required size. open belt drive transmit power by using friction
produced between the belt & pulley. The pulley having low surface finish to produce
friction. The rotation of pulleys in same direction

crossed belt drive

It is similar to open belt drive but the difference between these two belt drives are in
crossed belt drive the direction of rotation is opposite to each other. Here the pulleys are
set up to offset position. By providing some misalignment between two pulleys.

Quarter turn drive

In quarter turn drive the two axes of pulleys are right angle to each other. These drives
are used in industries for parallel power to tangential power transmission.

Compound belt drives

In these the axes of pulleys are not parallel to each other compound belt drives are
shown below and these compound belt drives are used to transmit power in any
direction and it uses number of pulleys .

2. The top face of Flat belt pulley is given slightly convex shape, this is called as
crowning of pulley.
