What Are 3D Printer Timing Belt Pulleys and Timing Belts?
3D printers typically involve the coordinated motion of three axes. In desktop 3D printers, the X and Y axes are commonly driven by timing belt pulleys and timing belts. The typical types of timing belt pulleys and timing belts used in 3D printers include MXL, T-type, and HTD for commercial-grade models. However, GT 2 timing belt pulleys and timing belts are currently the most widely used in 3D printing.
GT2 Timing Belts are designed for linear motion, featuring a tooth profile suitable for low backlash reciprocating motion and high precision positioning. After over a decade of development, GT 2 timing belt pulleys and timing belts have become cost-effective solutions for 3D printing. They are more affordable to replace when damaged, especially when compared to expensive linear guides.
The Origin of GT2 can be found.

Production of 3D Printer Timing Belt Pulleys and Timing Belts
3D printer timing pulleys are typically manufactured using one of three methods:
Precision CNC Lathe and Advanced Tooth Grinding: This method offers high precision, but it comes with higher production costs.
Mold Injection Followed by Machining: Products produced using this method have moderate precision levels and more affordable production costs.
Precision CNC Composite Machine Tool: This method combines both tooth grinding and machining in a single process, resulting in lower production costs and high precision.
Over the years, Sanmin Gear has evolved from the first method to the third, combining precision and cost-efficiency in the production of 3D printer timing belt pulleys.
The production of 3D printer timing belts begins with the creation of molds of various specifications, requiring precise and reliable tooth shapes. Rubber molds are used to produce complete timing belts, which are then precisely cut into different widths. Finally, the belts are labeled with trademarks and specifications.
