Nordex manufactures timing belt pulleys to industry standards as well as custom pulleys.
The improvements in timing belt technology allow close manufaturing tolerances of the profiles, which helps create smooth entry into and out of the mating pulley. This both reduces wear and provides greatly enhanced positioning accuracy, according to Nordex's press release.
Engineers are finding uses for the Nordex belt system in a variety of applications, especially when the requirement is for more power and higher accuracy in a smaller envelope.
Pulleys with mating belts are available in inch and metric sizes (0.080 pitch to 3/8 pitch and 2mm to 8mm pitch). Nordex pulleys are manufactured with a pin hub, split hub or hubless configuration. Nordex also offers round belt pulleys, cluster pulleys, idler pulleys and pulley stock and sprockets and chains. Mating belts are available in neoprene and polyurethane as well as round belts and Dacron core, stainless steel core and coreless belts in a polyurethane jacket.
