Conveyor Belt Tracking: Best Practices & Methodology

Posted on

Conveyor systems are the backbone of industry and are found in many facilities around the globe. Without them, production, testing, assembly, and shipping would come to a screeching halt.

One of the most common issues that impacts conveyor operation is belt misalignment and tracking problems. Belt tracking issues occur when the conveyor belt does not run true on the conveyor frame, causing it to drift to one side or the other.

This can result in the belt fraying, which will eventually lead to premature belt failure. Belt failure renders the conveyor inoperable until a replacement belt can be installed, impacting productivity and resulting in lost time and revenue. Additionally belt failure can cause damage to peripheral equipment around the conveyor.

To overcome the issues posed by conveyor belt misalignment, it is critical to ensure that your conveyors are designed with adequate belt tracking protocols in mind.
