To most people, a wedge belts and V belt will look incredibly similar. However, a wedge belt has a wedge-shaped profile and has been designed to work best with high-power transmission equipment with limited space requirements. These types of belts have a higher capacity than V belts to transmit higher power, and provide a higher level of support. Typically found in areas where industrial applications are subject to heavier loads, the belts do also perform well in lighter applications if required.
