BRECO® and BRECOFLEX® timing belts can be mechanically reworked to meet special functional features. For this purpose, in particular, timing belts with thick backs, T version, type series DR, and various coating materials are available.
Mechanical reworking Pierced BRECO® timing belts are used in vacuum transport systems. Their preferred version is manufactured with tension-member-free zones. Also available for this purpose are BRECOFLEX® timing belts.
Please note that the flexibility of timing belts with a thicker back is reduced and therefore they require larger pulley diameters. Belt flexibility can be improved by cross grooving or incisions.
