New PIX Timing Belts Offer Higher Power Rating, Quieter & Lighter

PIX-TorquePlus-XT2 is the new timing belt from PIX, replacing their HTD range in 5, 8, and 14M sections. The XT2 has a much higher power rating, and is also quieter and lighter than its predecessor. The new belts will allow you to upgrade existing drives without changing the pulleys.

The introduction of the XT2 demonstrates PIX’s commitment to developing their timing belt technology. For decades now, they have been known as the V-Belt specialists, coming later to the synchronous market. They are now employing the same level of innovation to timing belt design, which has made them a ‘world power’ in V-Belt production.

The TorquePlus-XT2 places PIX firmly in the high-tech/high-power timing belt market, where many of its competitors have had ‘free-reign’ for some time now.

Distag QCS director, Stewart Booth, commented “The XT2 is a ground-breaking product for us, and makes us a serious ‘player’ in the timing belt sector. It is a remarkable product, and its price-point will be a ‘breath of fresh air’ to industry buyers who have had limited options for higher power applications.”

The PIX-TorquePlus-XT2 belts are manufactured with top quality materials, and using modern high-tech systems and processes, which provide the enhanced capacity to transmit higher torques, and enables superior performance.

The XT2 will become the standard offering from Distag, for HTD applications, with the standard HTD being phased out, except for 3M sizes.
