About Drive Engineer®

Drive Engineer facilitates both new drive selection as well as existing drive analysis. Information provided includes horsepower capacity, drive limit warnings, service factors, hub loads, bushings, diameters, center distance and tensioning - everything needed to design a maximum-efficiency belt drive system.

This web app selects two-pulley drive systems based on standard line products offered by Timken Belts. It provides specific physical characteristics of the recommended drives with installation information. Horsepower ratings are based on standards of the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM). Target service life is 25,000 hours for v-belts and 10,000 hours for synchronous belts. Belt life is dependent upon proper installation and maintenance as well as environmental factors.

Please note: Drive Engineer is intended for use by Timken customers. We reserve the right to restrict access.
