Belt tracking is accomplished by increasing or decreasing the tension on one edge of the belt in relation to the other edge. It is a process similar to tensioning the belt during installation. If the tension on one side of the belt is too high, the belt will begin tracking off the pulley toward the side with lower tension. Ignoring these tracking issues will shorten the overall lifespan of the belt. Belt Technologies has a variety of strategies available to counteract negative tracking stresses and keep your metal conveyor belt system in alignment.
