Conveyor belt tracking

When a conveyor belt is installed on a conveyor, problems of design, manufacture, erection, poor workmanship, and normal tolerances become apparent. All too often these factors are considered a belt problem. While the belt may well be at fault, it's more likely reacting to a structural defect or maladjustment in the system.

Tracking, also called training, is the procedure used to make a conveyor belt run "true" when empty or fully loaded. This article discusses the practical aspects of tracking conveyor belts. The theory of belt camber and a method for squaring belt ends are also explained.
