A conveyor belt is fitted with one or several guides that are longitudinally welded on the back side of the belt.
The guide is generally used for belts for conveyors:
- with cylindrical drums
- that are very long
- that work in both directions
- when products are pushed on or off the belt laterally.
The guide helps center the belt on the conveyor. It is positioned in a groove that is adapted to its dimensions and geometry. The guide can be made of PVC or PU, in a trapezoidal, square or rectangular form. For small pulley diameters, it is also available in a notched version.
