Recently we have had many inquiries about the differences in our Belt Actuators. Bellow is a list of information regarding both the Belt and Pinion Actuator and the Belt and Pulley Actuator, each is great depending on your individual project needs.


Belt and Pinion Actuatorhas the motor mounted on the gantry plate and a single length of timing belt fixed at each end:

-        Less parts are required when compared to the Belt and Pulley.

-        There is more accuracy with a fixed belt rather than a looped belt.

-        The motor is mounted directly on the gantry.

-        There are fewer moving parts which results in less maintenance.

-        Works with all profiles of our V-Slot Extrusion.


Belt and Pulley Actuatorhas the motor mounted at one end and an idler pulley at the other. A timing belt is looped around both and fixed to the gantry plate:

-        Has a lighter Gantry which allows for more to be mounted onto the gantry.

-        Convenient for wiring as motor is mounted at one end, not on the gantry.

-        No cable drag chains needed.

-        It suits 2040, however, it can work with a 2060 and 2080 V-Slot Extrusion.

Both:

-        Are more economical than Lead Screw driven actuators.

-        Allow for different pulley sizes.

-        Have a wide variety of mounting options available.

-        The lengths of the Belt actuators can be customised to longer lengths.

-        Have faster operations than Lead Screw.

-        Have Precision tolerance of approx. 0.1mm.
