Timing belts are designed to convert rotational motion from stepper motors and servo motors into linear motion (along a rail) and GT2 timing belts are perfect for this task. They have a special profile with rounded teeth which reduces backlash and makes this a popular choice for high precision 3D printers and CNC machines.
If you need to utilize the power or torque of a servo or stepper motor but need the motor to be hidden away from sight or extreme temperatures, a GT2 timing belt is the ideal solution. Designed to transfer power at a 1 to 1 ratio, this GT2 Timing Belt is available in up to 100m lengths in the 6 mm width, with a tooth pitch of 2 mm. This allows you to make use of the belt in many applications.
- Width- 6mm
- Tooth Pitch- 2mm
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS FOR THESE 6MM GT2 TIMING BELTS
Our GT2 Timing Belts are a perfect design for use with 3D printers and are primarily utilized to transfer torque for linear motion. It allows the motors to stay in a safe place while the belt connects to a pulley and transfers the power into the extruder or bed carriage movement mechanism. This not only allows the extruder to be less limited in its motion, but also ensures that the parts that move weigh as little as possible.
