Belt mistracking occurs when the conveyor belt is no longer aligned in its original or recommended position on the conveyor structure. This causes the edge of the conveyor belt to rub against surrounding components and structure and become damaged. In this article, DYNA Engineering’s general manager, Thomas Greaves, explains how mistracking belts can now be corrected simply and economically, improving productivity by reducing unscheduled stoppages and maintenance costs.
