Richwood’s New ON-Track™ Tracking Idler

The new ON-Track tracking idler is a new way of solving the problem of belt mis-tracking. The system design is proactive instead of reactive, focusing on prevention of belt side tracking and misalignment instead of just correcting a belt misalignment after it occurs. ON-Track applies tension to both sides of the belt. The belt’s tendency is to find the place of lowest tension, or equilibrium, so it stays centered on the structure.

ON-Track Prevents Belt Mis-Tracking

ON-Track Belt Tracking Idler

Should the belt attempt to misalign, the gentle tension differential created by the ON-Track unit keeps the belt in place in center of the conveyor structure. The unit’s multiple roll design also creates a smooth arc to aid in guiding the conveyor, with tension meanwhile getting gradually greater in the areas closer to the edge.
