The PowerGrip GT3 belt has twice the load carrying capacity of its predecessor HTD. In addition, less width is required compared to HTD, allowing lighter, more compact drives.
PowerGrip GT3 belts are suitable for many applications including data storage, machine tool, hand power tools, postage handling, DC Stepper/Servo, food processors, office machines, centrifuges, money handling, medical diagnostic, sewing machines, ticket dispensers, robotics, vending machines and vacuum cleaners.
Eliminates lubrication and re-tensioning to reduce maintenance and labor as compared to roller chain drives. Fiberglass tensile cord provides high strength, excellent flex life, and high resistance to elongation. Gates patented tooth profile is designed for use with a specific sprocket groove profile. The sprocket groove-belt tooth combination increases capacity, while improving registration. Neoprene body provides protection against grime, grease, oil, and moisture. Nylon tooth facing provides a durable wear surface for long service life. PowerGrip GT3 belt and GT2 sprocket combinations match or exceed the positional accuracy of PowerGrip Timing belt/pulley systems. PowerGrip GT3 exceeds HTD in tooth ratchet resistance.
