PU belt jointing issue

PU belt jointing issue

PU belt jointing issue

Hi, I made a small transmission system for the lab and bought some v belts/the jointing kit for this project. (the PU Belts like this)
When trying to connect the PU rubber belt, I found the connection area was Not in the same horizontal plane.
How can I fix this? Or just let it be.

RE: PU belt jointing issue

If your using a V belt you might want to look at the Fenner Power Twist.
They have worked very well for me.
Best regards, David

RE: PU belt jointing issue

Obviously it will weaken the belt some due to le ss cross-section area at the glued joint. If this weakening is tolerable then there should be no issues continuing to run with the belt.
