What are V-belts?

The most widely used V-belts are Z, A, B, C and D classical belts. A cost effective solution, these belts can handle fractional to 375 kW drives. However, they occupy more space, and the drives weigh more than narrow-belt drives. Also, classical belts are usually less efficient than narrow belts. But their versatility and wide range of sizes and types make them an attractive alternative to wedge belts.
