Poly-V® sheaves feature ribs that run the length of the outside diameter rather than having teeth running across the face width of the sheave. Poly-V® synchronous drives are excellent drive systems when high speeds, small widths, and short distances are required due to their low operational noise and high efficiency. Poly-V® drives deliver up to 50% more power than conventional V-Belt drives. They can be used to provide increased drive capacity when an increase in face width is not possible. They can also be used in the same way to reduce the weight of the belt drive.
