This heavy-duty, multi-functional training fixture allows for convenient training in the identification, installation, tensioning and alignment of common belt drives types found in industry.

A steel baseplate and aluminum components combine to create a lightweight, yet realistic and stable device.

Packaged with hardware for applications related to multiple matched belts, fractional horsepower belts, positive drive belts and variable pitch sheaves, this device provides a variety of training scenarios in one benchtop piece of equipment. Optional drive hardware relating to other belt types and chain drives are available to expand the device's usefulness.

This versatile product, combined with a variety of realistic exercises, represents a complete course in this fundamental industrial technology, useful within industrial training programs, as well as in the educational setting.
