Available in a variety of straps, automotive belts are of a great use in the industries. They increase efficiency, make less noise, require less maintenance and almost need no lubrication. These straps operate on less energy and thus, are quite cost-efficient. In fact, the efficiency of the straps depends on the pulley to which they are attached as there is variation in the speed of the pulleys of different diameters. The V-shaped straps are used to produce the wedging action on the pulleys to intensify friction and bring improvement in power broadcast.

The three types of locomotive straps also help to increase efficiency:

* Clogged straps - With a grooved base, the slots of the clogged straps operate perpendicular to the...

Transmission belts are mainly used for transportation of materials over the length of a belt. The belt is a loop of flexible material used to link two or more rotating shafts mechanically, parallel to each other so that the material on the belt can move in a line. Belts may also be used as a source of motion in order to transmit power efficiently or even to track relative movement. Belts are looped over pulleys which may have a twist between the pulleys, which helps in moving the belt in a straight line. In case of a two pulley system, the belt can either drive the pulleys normally in a single direction or the belt may be crossed so that the direction of the driven shaft is reversed completely.

As a source of motion, the...
