    Metal Belt Zig Zag

    I am working with a small (34x10) metal conveyor belt supported by pulleys and not rollers. The belt exhibits a zig-zag deformation down the center after running for a day. Any ideas on what can be causing this?

  2. Joseph,

    Can you give more details on your system?

    For example:

    Is your metal belt a mesh belt, a metal sheet belt, or are you running a slat conveyor?

    What are the specifications on the belt?

    What are the c/c dimensions on your pulleys? Is there any support between the pulleys?

    What temperatures are you running at?

    etc.

    Your question implies that the belt straightens itself out after running. This suggests a thermal problem - but more information is needed.

    Regards,

    If you are unable to get full specs on the belt. If you have a digital camera take a photo and attach it to your next post. We may be able to help from the photo.
