This banded version of our MAXSTAR WEDGE SUPREME V-belt is available 3VX and 5VX. Compared to the banded version of the MAXSTAR WEDGE, the raw edge cogged variation has higher power transmission values and offers improved flexibility. This means that the MAXSTAR WEDGE SUPREME can also run on smaller pulleys. This belt is often used in mechanical applications and machinery.
- Designed for tough applications where multiple drive belts are subjected to heavy shocks and pulsating loads
- Banding prevents belt whip, turnover, vibration and jumping off that may occur with single belts in multiple drive application
- Lateral rigidity keeps the belt running in a straight line as it enters the pulley grooves during strong pulsating or shock loads for reduced wear
- Frictional and wedging principles of the V-belt drive apply and prevent slip at low tension and low bearing loads
