How much load “VEX HTD Timing belts” can take
I guess the value change if you use a narrow belt (9mm) or wide belt (15mm)
We wish to build a motion system that needs to take 90 ft-lbs
to reduce back drive we use WormBox by Andymark but it can take only up to 70 ft-lbs
so to reduce torque on WormBox output we planned to use a set of two pulleys in different sizes and a timing belt.
we didn’t find any information on how much load the belts can take.
BTW is VEX Timing Belts are actually WestCoastProducts Timing Belts?
Currently, we focusing on timing belts because we have stocks of them
Chains and Gears are our second option
