Domestic and Commercial Appliance Belts

Our domestic and commercial appliance belting solutions consist primarily of rubber power transmission (PT) belts, urethane PT belts, multi-v-rib belts and urethane spin cast belts. To meet the needs of a diverse range of applications, the timing belts in our rubber PT offering are available in platinum, gold and silver brands with our RPC and RPP parabolic tooth shapes. Our multi-V belts are available in rubber and urethane with both elastic and stable cords. Spin cast urethane belts and Hytrel belts are truly endless, elastic, and precise in dimension.

For popular exercise equipment applications such as treadmills, steppers, bicycles, cross-trainers and elliptical machines, we provide synchronous rubber belts. Our synchronous solutions are used on treadmills to drive the main walking surface belt. Additionally, Megadyne belts are used in other applications in which proper positioning and motion control are essential.

We also make an elastic multi-rib belt for compact drives to enable simplified, quiet operation in applications such as household vacuums and food processors, commercial and residential dryer operations. The pre-tension of this belt enables robotic assembly and placement on the drive without the use of a tensioner, eliminating operator error and the need for idlers, while reducing required installation labor — which in turn reduces costs.

Many machine tools utilize our traditional black rubber power transmission belts and multi-v-rib rubber and urethane belts. For lawn and garden equipment, Megadyne’s MDX belts are constructed with a special fabric jacket to slip in clutching applications.
