A belt is a loop of flexible material used to link two or more rotating shafts mechanically, most often parallel. They are looped over pulleys to create a drive from mechanical power to be transmitted across axles. They run smoothly and with little noise, Belt drives are simple, inexpensive, and do not require axially aligned shafts. They help protect machinery from overload and jam, and damp and isolate noise and vibration. They need no lubrication and minimal maintenance. Different speeds can be obtained by stepped or tapered pulleys. For a more direct and nonslip drive toothed or timing belts can be used.
