Tension Measured to Drive Productivity


When drive belts aren’t tensioned correctly your production line loses productivity.

Its not always easy to tension a belt correctly but OPTIBELT has the solution.

The OPTIBELT TT Frequency Tension tester can check the tension of your drive belts by measuring the frequency through vibration.

It measures the belt’s electromagnetic waves to determine its tension value in hertz.

It uses the unique function that measures low frequency 1-6hertz on long span lengths and features measurement values between 1-600 hertz.

The frequency tension tester can be used on v-belts, craft bands, rib belts and timing belts.

Noise or UV light will not affect the performance of the OPTIBELT TT.

Correct belt tension will drastically increase the life of your belts and pulleys and will reduce machine down time.

The OPTIBELT TT Frequency Tension Tester is the quickest and most accurate way to measure the tension of your belt.
