Timing belts, also known as synchronous belts or toothed belts are most often used in transporting, indexing, and positioning applications where high torque or force transmission and high acceleration rates are required. Unlike V-belts and flat belts that transmit power through friction alone and suffer slipping, the belt teeth on a timing belt engage the pulley teeth so the possibility of slip is eliminated. This makes timing belts very efficiency at transmitting power and gives them good positioning accuracy.
