Scrapetec PrimeTracker new tracking systemNew tracker works directly against misaligned belt
New to Scrapetec’s range of conveyor components is the PrimeTracker belt tracker, which eliminates problems associated with conveyor belt systems, including misalignment, abrasion and belt damage.

Our new PrimeTracker belt tracker has been designed to automatically guide a conveyor belt back into the correct straight-line position, to prevent costly downtime and component replacement,” explains Thorsten Koth, Sales and Distribution for Scrapetec. “An advantage of the Scrapetec PrimeTracker is that it is operates in the idling position at all times, unless there is sideways movement of the belt.
