1. 1.Belt drives The rotation motion is the ideal and the simplest means of transmission of mechanical power with negligible losses. Rotational motion can be transmitted from one mechanical element to the other with the help of certain systems known as transmission systems or drives. These systems are driven by a prime mover or transmit the rotational motion to the various parts of a machine within itself. Usually, shafts are employed to transmit rotational motion.
2. Belt Drives are a type of frictional drives used for transmitting powers from one shaft to another by means of pulleys which rotate at the same speed or at the different speed.
3. Types of Belts: There are four commonly used types of belts are: 1.Flat belt 2.V belt 3.Circular Flat belt: This belt has a rectangular cross-section. These belts are capable of transmitting power over long distances between pulley centres. The efficiency of this drive is around 98% and produce little noise.
4. A belt drive is shown in the figure. It consists of two pulleys over which an endless belt it passed over them. The mechanical power or rotary motion is transmitted from the driving pulley to the driven pulley because of the frictional grip that exists between the belt and the pulley surface. The portion of the belt which is having less tension is called slack side and the one which has higher tension is called tight side. The effective pulling power of the belt that causes the rotation of the driven pulley is the difference in tension on the slack and tight side The tensions in the tight and slack sides of the belt depend on the angle of contact, the belt drives have to be arranged such that the slack side comes above and the tight side comes below the pulleys.
5. Pullys In short, a drive pulley is one which is attached to a power source. When in use, a force is placed upon the belt around the pulley, which is also connected to an object being driven. In most cases, the applied force causes the object to spin.

7. Types of pulleys 1.Open belt drive (Pulley) In these types of pulleys, the shafts 2.rotate in the same direction 3.Crossed belt drive (pulley) 4.Fast and loose cone pulley 5.Stepped cone pulley 6.Jockey pulley 7.Complex pulley system 8.Compound pulley 9.Moveable pulley
8. 1. Open Belt Drive Open belt drive In these types of belt drive, the belt is employing when the two parallel shafts have to rotate in the same direction. When the shafts are far apart, the lower side of the belt should be the tight side and the upper side must be the slack side. This is because, when the upper side becomes the slack side, it will sag due to its own weight and thus increase the arc of contact.
9. •This types of belt drives, the belt is employing when two parallel shafts have to rotate in the opposite direction. At the junction where the belts cross, it rubs against itself and wears off. •To avoid excessive wear, the shafts must be placed at a maximum distance from each other and operated at very low speeds.
10. 3.Stepped Cone Pulley or Speed Cone Drive A stepped cone pulley also known for a speed cone is showing in the fig.
11. This types of belt drives are used when the speed of the driven shaft is to be changed very frequently as in the case of machine tools such as lathe, drilling machine, etc. A stepped cone pulley is an integral casting having three or number of pulleys of different sizes one adjacent to the other as shown in fig. One set of stepped cone pulley is mounted in reverse on the driven shaft. An endless belt will be wrapped around one pair of pulleys. By shifting the belt from one pair of pulleys to the other, the speed of the driven shaft can be varied. The diameter of the driving and driven pulleys is such that the same belt will operate when shifted on different pairs of pulleys.
12. 4. Fast and Loose Pulley Drive A fast and loose pulley drive is showing in fig. This types of belt drives are used when the driven or machine shaft is to be started or stopped whenever desired without interfering with the driving shaft. A pulley which is keyed to the machine shaft is called a fast pulley and run at the same speed as that of the machine shaft. A loose pulley runs freely over the machine shaft and is incapable of transmitting any power. When the driven shaft is required to be stopped, the belt is pushed on to the loose pulley by means of a sliding bar having belt forks.
13. 5. Jockey Pulley Drive In an open belt drive arrangement, if the center distance is small, or if the driven pulleys are very small, then the arc of contact of the belt with the driven pulley will be very small, which reduces the tensions in the belt, or if the required tension of the belt cannot be obtained by other means, an idler pulley, called jockey pulley is placed on the slack side of the belt as shown in fig.
14. Functions of belt and pulley Below are the functions of a belt drive and pulley in their various applications: The primary function of a belt is to transfer power (rotary energy) from one source to another. Whereas pulley that has a groove around its circumference allows a belt to smoothly through it when transmitting rotational motion. A pulley design to attain different diameter functions as it’s used to increase or decrease the speed of the application of its powers. A specific type of pulley is used to change the direction of the force. This pulley is often seen on heavier applications and they are not used for transmission of rotational motion.
15. Advantages and Disadvantages of Flat Belts Advantages 1.Flexible, simple in construction, smooth operations. 2.Efficient at high speeds and protects against overload. 3.Running and maintenance cost is low. 4.Relatively long life and easy to work with. Disadvantages 1.Loss of power sue to slip and creep in turn results in low efficiency. 2.Not preferred for short-centre distances. 3.because of the endlessness of the belt, joints reduce the life of the belt. 4.Not a positive drive
