Compacting the overall engine length by changing the drive from multiple belts to a single belt drive (serpentine).
By maintaining proper belt tension, stress on the bearings of each auxiliary equipment is reduced, which is expected to extend service life and improve fuel efficiency.
No need for maintenance such as re-covering
Improved reliability (e.g., proper tension setting)
Various types are available depending on the conditions of use

BSC (BANDO SMOOTH COUPLER™)
Unidirectional (one-way) clutch pulley used in automotive alternators to reduce the effects of rotational fluctuations.
V-ribbed belts for automobiles
To reduce flexural fatigue, which greatly affects belt life, the shape and materials have been developed and improved. This belt combines the high transmission performance of a V-belt with the flexibility of a flat belt, with a thin belt thickness and excellent flexural properties. Compactness of the transmission system and serpentine layout on multiple axes are supported.
