Abstract

Timing belts of the type required to control a sequence of operations in complex mechanical devices are generally comprised of continuous molded members. When a problem occurs with respect to such belts, such as when wear necessitates replacement, it is often necessary to dismantle large portions of the machine to release the belt from the various brackets, shafts, and frames which trap the belt inside the machine.
