|Measure the length of the belt using a measuring tape.
|See BOM spec.
|Measure the width of the belt using digital calipers.
|Lay the belt into the V-slot of an extrusion.
|The belt should pass through the narrowest section and lay flat in the bottom of the slot.
|Measure the distance between one tooth and another one 50 teeth away using digital calipers, then divide by 50.
|+/- 0.02mm (1%)
|Engage the belt to a GT2 pulley.
|The belt should fully engage with the pulley’s teeth.
|Measure the thickness of the belt using digital calipers.
|Belt sleeve fit
|Assemble the belt to a belt clip and secure with a belt sleeve.
|The belt sleeve should fit snugly over the two belt sections and provide adequate holding force.
|Tie a belt to a fixture 1.5m or more off the ground. Mark the belt just below the knot and then add a second mark exactly 1000mm below the first. Hang a 10kg weight from the belt (below the 1000mm mark) and measure the distance between the two marks.
|+ 10mm (1%)
|Use a tensile testing machine to measure the equivalent hung weight at which the belt will break.
|Inspect the belt for any discoloration or markings
|Black, no markings.
