Tangential Belt

Tangential BeltThe tangential belt drive is mainly used in the textile industry for driving spindles on ring spinning, open-end spinning, twisting and texturizing machines.

In principle, this is a tangential drive where the power is not transmitted to a single driven pulley but to an array of spindles or rotors. The spindles (rotors) are arranged in a linear manner with the belt pressed against them by pressure rollers to drive them tangentially.

This is why it is referred to as a “tangential belt drive”. Tangential belt drives may have various arrangements, depending on the machine manufacturer, type and size of machines, etc.
