OEM:  Welcome to a world where complicated formulas & engineering tables are a thing of the past when it comes to selecting the right sheaves and belts for your specific applications. It isn’t always easy helping your customers determine their requirements for PT components. Now selecting the right parts has never been easier.

For those that prefer, or need to do a manual drive selection, use this complete reference guide for
V-Belt drive components.

Attention Engineers:  An original aspect of the Maska guide pertains to the power rating calculation. The ratings have been adjusted, taking into account two correction factors of length and arc depending on the ratio and center distance, as compared to existing tables that show only basic horsepower ratings.
