NewsBosch V-belts for commercial vehicles

August 26, 20220

Vehicle standstills caused by breakdowns and repairs cost money. Torn V-belts are a frequent cause of commercial-vehicle engine breakdowns.

Bosch says that its ribbed V-belts are particularly resilient and feature a high operational reliability and a long service life reducing expensive downtimes. This contributes to profitable fleet operation.

As one of the world‘s largest developers and manufacturers of automotive products, Bosch claims it can make the most of a wealth of engineering experience and innovative materials for all of its commercial-vehicle ribbed V-belts.

They achieve an outstanding wear behaviour even under harsh operating conditions by use of ultra-modern rubbers. A tension member equipped with high-tech cords ensures their high impact resistance and resilience.

Bosch ribbed V-belts are highly reliable – even if used for particularly straining powertrains with pulsating operation.

Thanks to their low overall height, they offer flexible bending behaviour and particularly good thermal properties – even with the small diameters of serpentine drives. Their single-belt characteristics ensure low vibrations.

Replacing drive components on time has by now become a standard task for workshops. The result: efficient power transmission. Compliance with the service intervals specified by the manufacturers prevents damages.

For quick and safe belt replacement, Bosch provides a broad range for commercial vehicles comprising approximately 100 different types of V-belts – the majority of them being ribbed V-belts.

Bosch will be exhibiting at this year’s CV Workshop EXPO, which takes place from Saturday and Sunday, October 15-16 at the RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin.
