BRECOflex timing belts are constructed from an extremely wear resistant polyurethane (standard 92 Shore A, optional 85 Shore A) and high tensile braided steel tension members. For special applications, Kevlar tension members are available. These high grade materials combined with our sophisticated manufacturing know-how is the basis for the extreme accuracy and reliability of BRECOflex timing belts. Our various timing belts, including accessories like matching pulleys, clamps, tensioners and slider beds meet today’s high industrial standards.

SMOOTH TOOTH ENGAGEMENT
This unique circular “arc” tooth meshing enables the transmission of force dynamically during the point of engagement of belt and pulley. While the radial point of tooth engagement is constantly shifting and the “arc” shaped timing belt tooth passes the pulley centerline, the succeeding tooth is already engaged and avoids tooth snapping into the pulley tooth gap. This results in smooth self-tracking intermeshing and leads to optimal drive characteristics by reducing the polygonal surface of belt and pulley. This also leads to reduced vibration and less noise which is of high importance in today’s high demanding design criteria.
