The most common belt used to drive mechanisms in engines and machinery is the V-belt. The wedge or V-shaped cross-section design of the V-belt “wedges” in the groove, which increases friction. This improves the belt’s ability to transfer power effectively.
A V-belt is a wedge-shaped belt manufactured out a rubber compound, reinforced with a tensile cord specifically engineered to transmit power into movement. V-belts can be found in driving mechanisms, such as engines in air compressors, fans, and pumps.
