FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is a seam visible on one tooth of timing belts?
- This seam is created during production in the head area of the tooth and can appear several times on a timing belt depending on the timing belt size. However the seam does not limit function on timing belts and is purely optical.
2. Which standard products exist? Are they available from stock?
- At the start of sales there will be 15 sizes available, each in 4 standard widths. These standard widths are 12 / 21 / 36 / 62mm. The available timing belt lengths are 640 / 720 / 800 / 896 / 960 / 1000 / 1040 / 1120 / 1200 / 1224 / 1280 / 1440 / 1600 / 1760 / 1792mm.
