Total rewind of a customer's electric motor. Sometimes, though no one's fault, an electric motor "burns up." That's when our rewind department shines. Here's the technician is rewinding this small motor, and in a couple of hours it'll be "as good as, (or better than) new"...


Turkey and dressing is the classic dinner at this time of year.

Belts and Sheaves System Overview

Belts and sheaves are a commodity that requires a little discussion to quantify the sheer multitude of possibilities and application scenarios.

Although the proper "Sizing", "Profile Definition" and "Load Characteristics" are important to proper selection and full life of the product; these requirements will be addressed with you by our application representatives.

There are several types, sizes, and designs for you to consider in any NEW project. If you're replacing your present belts and sheaves, you may want to consider an upgrade to a different design because of efficiency.

The links below will take you to a more detailed description of some of these numerous designs.

Call A.R.&E. for your next belt and sheave project or if you need a replacement.

V-Belts Systems

Flat Belts Systems

flat belts & sheaves

Flat belts and sheaves are used for Power Transmission but have been around for ages. A major use is as a conveyor line, moving products in warehouses and outdoors like a quarry.

Synchronous/Timing Systems
synchronous and timing belt systems

Description: Synchronous and Timing belt systems are used primarily when the driven equipment MUST remain in total synchronization, such that the speed of the driver and driven shafts must experience ZERO slip.

Variable Speed Systems
variable speed belt systems

Description: This is a "Mechanical" type of Variable Speed system, as compared to today's electronic drives. But even these mechanical systems can be somewhat automated. Rather than having to "turn a crank" to modify the speed, some systems have that portion driven by a small motor.
