Success stories

Optibelt success story Atla Copco

Plate compactor

Optimal performance under extreme conditions

The industrial group Atlas Copco had been experiencing continued problems with its range of plate compactors at its Indian subsidiary. The belts used there could not cope with the harsh demands of road construction, and excessive wear resulted in costly machinery downtime. Since switching over to optibelt SUPER E-POWER M=S high performance V-belts, the plate compactors work more precisely and efficiently. 

The significantly longer service life of the optibelt SUPER E-POWER M=S has also brought about a sustainable reduction in costs.


Optibelt success story Astec

Road milling machine

Reliable use on highways in the USA

For 15 years, the Astec Industries group has been producing road construction equipment such as patented road milling machines whose special requirements have caused V-belts to fail over and over again. After performing calculations and conducting field tests under the most extreme conditions, Optibelt application engineers suggested the use of special Optibelt kraftbands with aramid cords.

Changing over to optibelt KB BLUE POWER high performance belts guarantees that road milling machines will work at a smooth rhythm.
