Raw Edge: does not have a cover. It is cured and then cut into a “V” shape. Raw edge type v-belts are more efficient, generate less heat, allow for smaller pulley diameters, increase power ratings, and provide longer life....Send Inquiry
V-belts may be cogged or non-cogged. Cogs allow more flexibility when used with small diameter pulleys or back-bending idler pulleys. Cog configurations can be evenly-spaced, randomly-spaced, perpendicular, or angled.

Industrial equipment is commonly powered by belt drives because they are flexible, relatively inexpensive, simple to install and maintain, and require a minimal amount of space. In addition, belt-driven equipment parts are easy to obtain and replace, a fact that helps reduce downtime spent on repairs.
Industrial belt drives are used to transfer torque and aid in speed changes from one shaft to a another shaft. In all applications, the drive consists of one or more belts and a sheave/pulley relationship. Changing the diameter of the driven sheave/pulley alters the ratio and causes a change in the speed.
Belt drives have following advantages over other drive types such as close-coupled, roller chain, and gear drives:
Economical to install and maintain
Reliable and trouble-free
Simple to design
Easy to install
No lubrication is required
Work in a variety of applications
Can be adjusted for any speed requirement
Quiet and operate smoothly
Pulleys are less expensive than chain sprockets
Long sheave/pulley life
Can act like a clutch and prevent catastrophic failure
