Tracking guides are placed on the tooth side of the timing belt. This provides true belt tracking in applications where long narrow belts are used to move products. Tracking guides are also common where products are side loaded, which can place a lateral shift on the belt’s direction of travel. The tracking guides can be notched or longitudinally grooved to provide maximum flexibility around pulleys. Standard HabaSYNC tracking guides are available in 92 Shore A hardness thermoplastic polyurethane.
