WHAT DOES BELT DRIVE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

belt drive

Belt (mechanical)

A belt is a loop of flexible material used to mechanically link two or more rotating shafts, most often parallel. Belts may be used as a source of motion, to transmit power efficiently, or to track relative movement. Belts are looped over pulleys and may have a twist between the pulleys, and the shafts need not be parallel. In a two pulley system, the belt can either drive the pulleys normally in one direction, or the belt may be crossed, so that the direction of the driven shaft is reversed. As a source of motion, a conveyor belt is one application where the belt is adapted to continuously carry a load between two points.

Definition of belt drive in the English dictionary
