How to Measure Belts

Postby QuangVuong » Wed Aug 03, 2011 4:20 am

Belts are identified in 2 different ways.By a number of teeth or by the length of the belt. For example, a 60t belt can be classified as 60t or S3M 180. They are exactly the same, just 2 different names. 60t stands for 60 teeth. S3M 180 is the pitch and length of the belt. So the pitch is 3mm and the length of the belt is 180mm.

To measure the belt size you need, wrap a string or something similar around the pullies like V

Mark where it goes around once. Thats the length of the belt in millimeters. Then divide that by 3 then youll have the amount of teeth you need.

EG, 180mm = 60t
