Optibelt success story Issue 18/2020: Industry Flour Mill

Problem :

  • The existing belt (4 pcs SPB 1700 of various brands per drive) had a average life time of 4 months and were re-tensioned monthly
  • The frequent changes of belts (150 roller mills x 4 pcs per drive) resulted in very high stock holding costs and maintenance costs.
