For more than 150 years, Optibelt has stood for proven product quality and durability. Now we are breaking new ground with the new labeling for our belt range.
In the coming years, we will successively convert the various product groups to the new labeling so that we can show you not only the proven quality, but also a lot of interesting and important additional information directly on the product. Specifically, you will find the following information on our product range in the future:
QR code for additional information and explanations
Unique function pictograms
EAN code including article number
Trace code for advanced batch tracing
Look forward to the new world of Optibelt product labeling!
The conversion of all products is estimated to be completed by the end of 2025. Starting with belts from the covered production, followed by the raw-flank production. Ribbed belts and timing belts are still being planned and will follow.
Yes, during the conversion of production it can happen that old and newly labeled products are temporarily in circulation at the same time. However, nothing changes in the product quality, so all straps are compatible with each other.
This corresponds to a 13-digit sequence of numbers (also known as GTIN). This clearly defines a product worldwide and must not exist twice in retail (standardized procedure). In order to avoid confusion with the second code on the belt, we indicate both codes in advance. After a problem-free start of production, we will check to what extent a visual adjustment of the printout or an addition to the existing belt designation (from "EAN" to GRAPHIC") is possible and also necessary.
The second barcode is the trace code, which enables us to trace back the respective production steps internally. The sequence of digits in the code itself comes from the respective production paper and, in the case of a required batch traceability, provides further details on the materials used, etc.
S=C Plus (Set Constant) Wrapped V-belts that can be used in sets without measurement.
M=S (Matched Set) Raw edged, moulded cogged V-belts that can be used in sets without measurement.
Icon Maintenance free
Once optimally pre-tensioned, V-belts that exhibit these product characteristics do not require any re-tensioning operations.
Icon electrically conductive
Electrically conductive Electrically conductive according to ISO 1813 Optibelt products (including V-belts, kraftbands and timing belts) that display this product characteristic fulfil the conditions of electrical conductivity according to ISO 1813 (for V-belts and kraftbands) or ISO 9563 (for timing belts) at the time of delivery.
