Abstract

A timing belt 1 has a body 2 attached thereto by molding the body 2 onto the timing belt 1 so that some of teeth 3 of the timing belt 1 are engaged with a molten plastic, which forms the body 2. Hardening of the molten plastic, which may be glass-filled polycarbonates, for example, provides a positive engagement between the belt 1 and the body 2. The body 2 has a pair of openings 4 to receive screws to enable attachment of the body 2 to a carrier. This provides a positive attachment of the belt 1 to the carrier regardless of the size or shape of the teeth 3 of the timing belt 1. This prevention of slippage of the connection of the timing belt 1 to the carrier eliminates the problems of poor registration and poor correction quality which can occur when there is slippage of the timing belt 1 relative to the carrier.
