  • Timing Center V-guide for Positive Tracking
  • Center Tracking without side flanges
  • Preferred Tracking for Applications
  • Side Loading, Vertical Conveying, Long Transport Belts


Reasons and Applications for Using V-guide Tracking

  • For the most positive form of synchronous motion with dynamic true tracking
  • Where pulley flanges cannot be used or may interfere with products being conveyed
  • Conveyors with long center distance where true tracking is critical
  • Side loading or unloading applications
  • Where the belt runs on its edge in a vertical position instead of lying flat on a conveyor surface
