New textbook information resource for synchronous belt technology

21 March 2012

Handbook Timing Belts: Principles, Calculations, Applications - a publication originally written and published in German by Raimund Perneder in 2009 - has recently been translated into English with additional content contribution from its co-author, Ian Osborne, the chairman of Transmission Developments. Based on over 60 years of combined professional experience, this hardcover publication runs to 269 pages with 237 illustrations.

Detailed chapters cover brand-neutral synchronous belt profile geometries and specifications, manufacturing process and materials; with application and sizing related chapters for drive systems, linear motion and product transport systems. An extensive bibliography will guide readers to various manufacturers through their websites whilst further chapters deal with timing belt failure and drive design. Comprehensive subject index  and glossary information sections are also included.

The book addresses both the needs of application engineers and system integrators working in design, development and machine-building, as well as providing comprehensive textbook material for students at universities and vocational schools.

Handbook Timing Belts - Principles, Calculations, Applications is published by Springer-Verlag Berlin and is available for purchase at £90.00. The website provides PDF reading of specific sections for evaluation purposes and links to the main site for purchasing.

A link to the download site is also provided from the Transmission Developments website.  The book is also available for purchase from Amazon in both hardback and Kindle versions.
