Linear Drive

Metal timing belt - Metal drive tape

Belt Technologies, Inc. designs and manufactures stainless steel drive tapes for linear positioning applications. Drive tapes are usually affixed with specialized end attachments for easy and strong terminations. Perforations can be added for increased positional accuracy in conjunction with patented timing pulleys. Metal drive tapes do not generate particulates, require no lubrication, are virtually non-stretchable, and will give you the same precision positioning for the full life of the steel tape.
