Timing and Accessory Modules
Timing Chain Drive, Timing Belt Drive and Accessory Drive provide the means to model and analyze timing mechanisms and ribbed belt accessory drives. These three modules are also available as a “Drives Bundle”.
You can build complete, multi-staged timing and accessory drives, comprised of mixed chain and belt drive stages. Create chain and belt drives based on the basic drive layout (number and location of wheels / tensioner) with the Chain/Belt Template Wizard.
Building blocks provided through the Chain / Belt Drive Modules: chain (bushing, roller, silent / inverted tooth), sprocket (ISO 606 profile, circular or non-circular using external CAD geometry), involute sprocket (for silent / inverted tooth chain), chain guide (fixed, translational, pivot), hydraulic tensioner, toothed belt (ISO 5294 and ISO 5296 profiles), ribbed belt (Poly-V belt), idler/pulley (circular and elliptic), tensioner.
Even complex belt and chain drive templates can be easily created with the Chain/Belt Template Wizard.
