Self Tracking Timing Belt









Guide Profile


Self Tracking Timing Belts combine steel reinforcement with welded or moulded V guides. It provide accuracy and linear drive. Self-tracking timing belts are made with two materials:

  • Wear resistant polyurethane
  • High tensile steel cord tension members.


  • Conveying
  • Indexing
  • Linear drives
  • Power transmission


  • V-guide for precise tracking in timing applications
  • Preferred tracking option for various applications
  • Center Tracking without side flanges
  • Side loading, vertical conveying, extended conveyor belts


  • Continuous tooth engagement
  • Friction reduced tracking
  • Smooth idler interaction
  • Smooth meshing of belt and pulleys
  • Increased power range
  • Improved repeatability
  • Self-tracking, no flanges necessary
  • Decreased polygonal effect
  • More compact design
  • Tangential belt drive possible
  • Reduced vibration
  • Reduced noise
  • No lateral movement


What is belt tracking?

Belt tracking refers to the capability to sustain control over the intended path of a conveyor belt following its alignment and installation.
Ensuring proper tracking of a newly installed metal conveyor belt is crucial, as frequently, the alignment of a new belt differs from that of the previous one.

What is a timing belt with V guide ?

Timing belts equipped with a v-guide are primarily utilized for linear guidance, as well as in vertical and rotary drive applications.
A v-guide is fitted either by welding it onto the timing side of an existing timing belt or by extruding the v-guide during manufacturing.
