These belts, part of the A 6B16-D Series, are built for machine tools, mowers, business machines, copiers and printers. They have double-sided tooth action and excellent flexibility. They wind between pulleys for shaft rotation synchronization, even with counterrotating shafts. In high-reduction drives, these belts take the place of multiple belts used for the same job, and work well in small spaces. They are made out of a Kevlar-reinforced polyurethane, and work in 0-180F temperatures, and can work intermittently in temperatures up to 248F. They come in 1/8, 3/16, ¼ and 3/8-inch widths, with special widths also available. They have 132-500 grooves on each belt, with a 10.56 to 40-inch pitch length range.

Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
