Continuous Belt Adjustment

Oct. 30, 2017
Martin Engineering offers a track reversing tool for conveyors.

A new powered conveyor belt tracker from Martin Engineering delivers immediate and continuous precision adjustment of hard-to-track reversing conveyors, helping operators reduce spillage and extend the life of belts and other system components.  Able to effectively center the belt regardless of the travel direction, the robust unit has demonstrated greater durability and longer service life than previous designs, translating to a reduced cost of ownership.  Versatile enough to run on 110V / 220V power or a plant’s existing compressed air, the Martin Tracker Reversing can even be specified with the company’s unique Roll Gen System, which uses the kinetic energy of the moving belt to produce a supply of electricity sufficient to power sensors, scales, lights and other devices when no power is readily available. 


For locations where no electricity or plant air is available, Martin Engineering designed the Roll Generator to serve as a self-contained mini power station.  In those cases, the tracker uses an electric actuator to move the rolls and correct the belt’s position.  The electric actuator is also used when 110/220V power is available from the plant.  The Martin® Tracker™ Reversing is available in Lower Units for installation on the return side of the belt and Upper Units for use on the conveyor’s carrying side.



  • Features sensing rollers and lever arms on both ends of the unit
  • Employs a stainless steel lamella or paddle wheel to sense the direction of belt travel and activate the sensing rollers on the proper end of the unit
