Success Stories

  • Washing Machines and Dryers
  • Orange Squeezer
  • Manufacturers in the commercial and domestic appliance industry demand reliable drive systems that are low-noise, virtually maintenance-free and energy efficient. To achieve these goals, washing machines and dryers largely use rubber PV-style v-belts. Also called poly-v, multi-rib, or serpentine, PV belts incorporate grooves or “ribs” along the length of the belt which correspond to matching grooves on the pulleys. These belts connect the motor to the drums used to agitate laundry in washing machines and tumble the laundry dry in dryers. Motor shaft speeds in these appliances can exceed 10,000 rpm and drives must provide quiet, vibration-free high rotational drum speed.

    Discover which special PV belt construction allows them to achieve their goals in terms of low-noise, high rotational speed and low costs (energy saving and reduced maintenance).

  • Juicers are common kitchen appliances used to extract juice from fruits and vegetables. They must operate smoothly at high speed with a minimum level of noise and vibration within a small dimensional space. For this kind of small high-torque appliance, Megadyne provides a synchronous belt that meets all requirements while reducing drive weight and cost.
