How does a belt drive work？
In belt drives, power is transmitted between at least two pulleys by a belt. One pulley drives the belt (driving pulley) and the other pulley is driven by the belt (driven pulley). In belt drives, the speed is often reduced, so that in these cases the smaller of the two pulleys is the driving pulley.
The wrap angle is defined as the angle between the run-up and run-off of the belt on the pulley.
The larger the wrap angle, the more adhesive surface the belt has and the greater the frictional force or the force that can be transmitted. However, it must be noted that the pulleys of a belt drive are wrapped to different degrees by the belt if the pulleys have different diameters!
To increase the wrap angle and thus the transmittable force, idler pulleys can be used.
In order to increase the wrap angle on the drive shaft and thus ensure sufficient power transmission, a idler pulley was used.
In belt drives, the power transmission is generally friction-locked by frictional forces between the belt and the pulley.
In the case of friction-locking power transmission, the belt must be pressed against the pulley with a certain contact force. This is the only way to ensure that the frictional force is large enough to prevent the belt from slipping over the driven pulley or the driving pulley from rotating faster than the belt.
The maximum transmittable force with belt drives corresponds to the static friction force between belt and pulley.
To ensure that wrapping is not reduced under load, the slack side should be arranged over the tight side.
It should be noted that the deflection of the slack side under load results in different wrap angles compared to the load-free state. The arrangement of the tight side and the slack side also influences the wrap angle. If the slack side is above the tight side, the wrap angle increases due to the deflection, while in the opposite case the wrap angle is reduced.
