Raw Edge Cogged Belts, as the name implies, do not have textile wrapping on the outer surface and are produced by slitting individual belts from rubber sleeves.
The manufacturing methods also make it simpler to produce belts with cogs underside thereby reducing the bending resistance of the belts and allowing them to operate on pulleys with approximately 20% smaller diameters. The decreased bending resistance reduces the mechanical losses during bending and leads to improved efficiency and reduced workling temperature. Heat dissipation is further improved by the larger area between the belt and the surrounding atmosphere and also by the air turbulence around the cogs during operation. Multi stage drives can be eliminated. These belts require a higher tension than the wrap belts so as to exhibit higher power transmission capability.
- Drives with very small pulley diameters
- High ambient temperatures
- High belt speeds
- High level of power transmission
