How can slippage of a belt be avoided?

Slip-free power transmission can be ensured by taking following measures:

  • Increase the arc of contact on the driving pulley
  • Increase the coefficient of friction of the driving pulley (pulley lagging)
  • Increase the initial tension (do not exceed the admissible belt elongation)

Increasing the driving pulley diameter will have no effect on the power transmission capability.
