How are you tracking?
Conveyor belt mistracking is a common occurrence, and can be caused by:
- Damaged conveyor structure
- Ill-fitting components
- Inaccurate material loading
- Poor belt splices
- Environmental conditions
As the belt moves off centre, the edge of the conveyor is at risk of damage as well as the structure. This also poses a great OHS risk with the increase of spillage and entanglement.
It’s a costly and interruptive productivity issue. Fortunately, Kinder have the K-Commander® solution!
Ideally a pivoting, self-centralising, belt training system, which rotates freely when the belt experiences mistracking behaviour should be installed. Other options include fixed tracking solutions without rotating structure.
