Reinforcement of the tooth belts is the element responsible for the transmission of the torque. Its structure is related to the dynamics of the belt and such important parameters as the stiffness of running stability on pulleys and above all, the pitch stability. The axis of symmetry of the reinforcement in the vertical direction of the belt is the reference point of the belt geometry as well as the neutral axis of stresses caused by bending. On the arc of the contact between belt and pulley, over the reinforcement, the belt is stretched, and below it is compressed. In the tooth belts, there are various solutions of the carrier layer, in terms of the materials used, but also types of fibers, quantity of the fibers, etc. The paper presents the results of analysis of the carrier layer of the most popular tooth belts with T10 and AT10 trapezoidal teeth. The paper shows possible direction of choice of the construction materials of the carrier layer and their importance for the dynamics of the gear with the tooth belt.
Key words: drive belts / tooth belts / materials in the production of belts
