Mistracking and rubbing against the frame causes belts to fray at the edges, and that’s only the beginning. Pieces of the belt material can shear off at the friction point and be introduced into the food products being transported. Before you know it, the whole line is down for the unscheduled replacement of a ruined belt.
The Eaglestone Accu-Track 3 Conveyor Belt Tracking System was designed specifically to keep belt mistracking from decreasing productivity. Its automatic monitoring and adjustment capabilities keep your processing line operating at high levels of performance.
Speed and Accuracy
The Accu-Track 3 provides superior belt control the length and width of the conveyor with a complete line of built-in features to minimize lateral belt movement. These include full range belt edge tracking, micro-adjustable belt edge guides and continuous belt location monitoring. A Dual Cylinder/Dual Sensor configuration delivers accurate belt tracking automatically via high belt tracking force. Pneumatic cylinder action provides amazingly fast response times.
Reduced Down Time
You can get the most lifetime usage out of your belts and save money on maintenance and installation as well. Retrofits are quick and easy thanks to the Accu-Track’s integrated design. Scheduled maintenance is reduced through the use of stainless steel rollers with sealed cartridge bearings and solid thermoplastic (nylon) tracks that don’t require lubrication.
Of course, safety should never take a back seat to speed, so the Accu-Track 3 is designed with formed stainless steel guards that fully enclose tracking units to ensure operator safety.
