Reasons and Applications for Using V-guide Tracking
  • For the most positive form of synchronous motion with dynamic true tracking
  • Where pulley flanges can not 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
