Some Important Readings


#1: Composition of Timing belt

Composition of Timing BeltsComposition of Timing belt or How Timing belt is made or what are ingredients of Timing Belt? I would like to dedicate this post to my Friend who is in the same business and asked me to guide him to get more and more customer.

He was expecting me to train him in this business, I simply told many things with time but recently he questioned me, Rizwan: Tell me what are chemicals or things used in making a timing belt, what makes a timing belt long-lasting (shall write later on it) and how can I make my customers understand to buy from me.

Composition of Timing Belt

Timing belts are made of rubber belts, rubber molded with tension member that are usually threads of Cotton, Kevlar, Fiber, Teflon or Nylon. Timing belt rubber is not ordinary rubber (I don’t know chemical formula), might be adding carbon to make it stronger.

Good companies like Bando, Opti, Gates, Goodyear, use more heat-resistant rubber & high tensile Kevlar or Fiber threat that runs of high-speed and don’t melt on but small companies’ mostly Low quality Chinese belts are not so much Heat proof and also they don’t use thread of high tensile.

Composition of Timing Belt tooth

Composition of Timing belts tooth are different in its pitch that are specifically used on custom-made pulley. There are lots of timing belt kinds in today market but in past my father told me there were only 3-5 kinds of belts.

Composition of Timing Belts

Time, Experience, Competition, Requirements, Machinery Designs were reasons behind improvements and customization. Generally there is no difference in 8M & S8M bellt, (Industrialist often use any on same drive) if you critically check both tooth you can easily notice that 8M is simply round tooth where as S8M is give little deep line in center of width of tooth and also minor rough tooth.

Composition of Timing Belt

This is improvement just to make tooth life more and also to give place for heat ventilation while belt is on pulley. No doubt 8M is less strong and S8M is stronger of same manufacturer but this is business they shall keep making little variations to compete. I still hope i have missed lots of things in sharing Composition of Timing belt – If you find error or something more better to be added in. Please share via email or comment. We love it !


#2: Reason Behind Timing Belts Tooth Variations

Today our world has been merged. In broader perspective its one nation and one country with boundaries and set rules of provinces. Globalization is gripping day by day. It’s not like something is far or not accessible. One of the Reason Behind Timing Belts tooth Variations is Globalization.

Globalization is 1st Reason Behind Timing Belts Tooth Variations

Globalization is defined as an ongoing process by which regional economies, societies, and cultures have become integrated through a globe-spanning network of communication and exchange. Globalization is usually recognized as being driven by a combination of economic, technological, socio cultural, political, and biological factors. To me, This is the core Reason Behind Timing Belts tooth Variations.

Reason Behind Timing Belts Tooth Variations

Still Confused? I explain it, but first go Back in 2000 era for Timing Belts

If you go 15-20 years back, There were some countable names of Timing Belts manufacturers. Today, if you google “manufacturer of timing belts”. You shall get about 17,600,000 results. Of course this is not true but number of manufacturers are also not in hundred. You will find more than thousand in only China. Most of them are listed online. Now start counting Manufacturers of Timing Belts in China, India, USA, UK, Germany, Italy  and  many other manufacturing countries. Any idea? How much you will find? First of all, you are not going to research because you know brands like Gates, Unita, Bando, Opti, Perkin, Goodyear and some Chinese like Bonds and you are satisfied with them. Soon I’ll share one more secret 😉

Once a belt new belt is installed on new machine. This machine goes to purchasing parties (factory / agents) in different parts of world. On the time of belt replacement, they need to buy new one to keep machine running. They buy from machinery sellers at any cost if this is not available in local market. Industries also request local importers to keep new belt in stock. The same case happens in every country and there are manufacturers in some country too. This is the chance for local manufacturers to make new die and start making new type of belt. This is how Globalization effects.

Creating Monopoly is 2nd Reason Behind Timing Belts tooth Variations

Whenever a manufacturer of machinery designs pulley and shafts, they have some specific diagrams and requirement of belt on that specific toothed pulley. They usually collaborate with manufacturers requesting their requirements from one belt in huge quantity. Leading Belting Manufacturers make little variations with tooth to rule the market for some time. This is their PEAK TIME.

Please Note: They don’t change belt design without proper & long-term research. It is not like simply changing belt teeth from 10 mm width to 12 or 08.  Changing belt pitch with just idea. They make proper plans, research, analyse the change, test the change, observe and also test improvements in belt grip & life after change. Once everything goes well, then they decided to have alternation.

As explained above in Globalization perspective. Local or small manufacturers copy new belts to stay in market. They follow new technologies and techniques which are actually made by ruling companies. They (Big Companies) have already earned Return on Investment before this modified and manufactured by Local & Small companies belt comes in global market.

Why they do it?

I think you already knew it that manufacturers need to do it to stay in market. A well reputed branded belt is Pakistani rupees 1000 but same sized Chinese belt is half and sometimes lower than half price. Production costs are too high in America & Europe but lesser in Asian Countries. 2-5% will buy brands but rest will go for less priced option.

Technology is another reason

Technology is rapidly increasing. Our demands are increasing because our population is increasing. Researches are working 24 hours to make work flow faster, sharper, accurate & longer. You need to improve yourself when your requirement changes. People in 10th century didn’t need cars to move but now you need to car, actually fastest and luxurious car. This is another factor.
