OPTIBELT : The history of the brand

In 1872, the Höxterschen Gummifädenfabrik was founded, which later became Arntz OPTIBELT KG in 1975. In 1948, the company started its first V-belt production. In the same year, the first patent for V-belts was filed by Arnold Arntz.

Today, OPTIBELT is a leader in power transmission technology. It has 8 production sites in 6 countries, 33 distribution sites in 30 countries and 24 logistics centers in 20 countries. It is also an innovator in the field of high performance power transmission belts. Indeed, OPTIBELT has a long history of innovation within the industry and continues to develop new technologies and materials that meet customer needs.

Whether in the mechanical, automotive, agricultural or appliance industries, the quality and durability of OPTIBELT products make them the obvious choice.

The products offered by OPTIBELT

OPTIBELT offers a wide range of belts and power transmission components including:

  • V-belts : are highly efficient, trapezoidal-shaped power transmission belts that are commonly used in automotive, industrial and agricultural applications. They provide excellent stability and vibration damping for smoother operation.
  • Grooved V-belts : These are belts that combine the high flexibility of a flat belt with the power of a V-belt. They have parallel grooves on the V-section. They are mainly used in the transport and logistics, printing and agricultural sectors.
  • Toothed belts : These are belts with teeth on the cover to ensure a slip-free transmission. It is commonly used as a timing belt but also in the transport and logistics, printing, foodstuffs, gardening equipment, textile, ventilation and compression sectors.
  • Twin belts : also called multi-strand belts. These are belts that have several strands (usually 2, 3, 4 or 5 strands). They allow to support irregular loads and shocks while ensuring a transmission of torques and a high power. They are commonly used in the road construction, agricultural, cement, and oil and gas industries.
  • Drive Components: OPTIBELT offers a full range of drive components, including pulleys (V-groove, toothed, grooved), idlers and hubs. These parts are designed for reliable operation in extreme environments.
