Cogged Belts

Cogged Belts
The Cogged Belts are very useful and have slots that run perpendicular to the belts length. The slots reduce the belts bending resistance. The belts can be used with the same pulleys as equivalently rated V-belts. They run cooler, last longer, and have an efficiency that is about 2% higher than that of standard V-belts. The belts are narrow belt profile transmits up to three times the horsepower of standard cogged V-belts for use on heavy duty drives with shock loads. They are available in various types and designs for being used in the various places. Cogged Belts are very efficient.



Cogged V-belts have grooves across the width of the belt to dissipate heat. These standard and cogged V-belts are categorized by the dimensions of their cross section and features that impact performance.
These cogs serve several crucial purposes:
Reduced Bending Stress: The cogs allow the belt to flex more easily around smaller pulleys, reducing bending stress and increasing belt life.
Enhanced Grip: The cogs create more surface area, improving the grip between the belt and the pulley, especially important in high-torque applications.
Cooler Operation: Improved flexibility and reduced friction lead to lower heat generation, enhancing the overall efficiency of the power transmission system.
Our Cogged V-Belt collection includes various sizes and sections, such as 3VX, 5VX, AX, BX, and CX. These belts offer exceptional performance in demanding environments and high-torque applications, making them a favorite among industries that require precision and reliability.
In conclusion, whether you’re looking for the reliable simplicity of Standard V-Belts or the enhanced performance of Cogged V-Belts, MDS of Michigan has you covered. Our wide range of options ensures that you’ll find the perfect belt to keep your machinery running smoothly and efficiently.
