Tracking Your Conveyor Belt Correctly

Tracking Belt Maintenance- Increase the Longevity

If you rely on conveyor belts and the belt tracking to keep your business moving, you want that belting to last as long as possible. For over 40 years, the engineering experts at MIPR Corp. have helped customers keep their conveyor belting systems running strong—minimizing downtime and maximizing the value of their investment. Following the tracking guidelines below will help you keep your belts running as long as possible.

Think of the tires on your car or truck. (We know this is a conveyor belt blog but we promise we’re going somewhere with this!) What happens when your wheel alignment is off? When car wheels are misaligned, they do not meet the road at the proper angle. Your driving performance degrades and tires begin to wear down unevenly and much faster than they normally would—leading to potentially unsafe situations. In fact, tires wear out twice as fast when not properly aligned!

Increasing Productivity in Your Bakery with High Temp Conveyor Belts

Increasing Bakery Productivity with High Temperature Conveyor BeltsBakery Conveyor Belts Get The Job Done

Did you know that one of the biggest challenges for bakeries today is maximizing their productivity? It’s a challenge all over the food processing industry but a small-scale, franchise or medium-sized bakery operations can struggle more than others. At these operational sizes, automation may not make financial sense, but bottlenecks can form around important tasks like kneading, oven-loading, or packing.

For your profit margins to reach their fullest potential, you need to keep your baked goods moving—and nothing does that better than high quality, food-grade conveyor belting.

Overall equipment effectiveness can be measured in many ways: quantity over time, reliability, energy consumption, personnel requirements, ease of use, and upfront and maintenance costs. Your bakery conveyor belting needs to stand up to extreme temperatures—from hot ovens to refrigeration and even freezing—while reducing ingredient spillage and waste. Your bakery belts should preserve freshness and flavors during the production and packing process and resist sticking, avoid cross-contamination (gluten, allergens, and more). And always, your bakery’s conveyor belting must keep your employees and customers safe while keeping your production line running smoothly.

Our engineers recently took a call from a frustrated factory owner with an ongoing problem on a tire-shredding recycling line. Their facility featured an outdoor-to-indoor conveyor belt. Employees working outside stacked old tires on a conveyor belt that carried the tires up a 30-degree incline into a warehouse where they were tipped into a chipper. The problem? Even in fine weather, tires tended to slip back on the incline and fell off. Add rain, snow, or ice, and the frequent production slowdowns were starting to impact their bottom line.

MIPR Corp Case Study: When Getting the Right Conveyor Belt was Critical, this Sawmill Chose MIPR Corp

For over 40 years, the engineering experts at MIPR Corp have helped customers in critical, high-impact environments design, manufacture and deliver conveyor belts. Recently, MIPR Corp helped one lumber company protect their production line while making a powerful leap in production volume.

A sawmill of international lumber, needed to make a big jump in volume without breaking the bank upgrading their production line. As their load scaled up from 3,000 to 7,000 logs per day, they needed a smart and cost-effective solution, fast.

This sawmill operates a whole-tree, bark-on, lumber saw mill. It is a powerful, high abrasion operation running six days a week.  A break in a conveyor belt that requires a changeout brings the line to a halt for 24 hours—costing the mill time and money.

MIPR Corp designers and engineers have confronted challenges just like this for over 40 years. MIPR Corp installed a much heavier duty conveyor belt to prevent future breakdowns.


  • MIPR Corp completed an onsite inspection
  • Belting that Won’t Break Under Pressure
    As speed and volume picked up in the sawmill, conveyor belts weren’t keeping up. Worn belts catch and break, damaging products, stopping production and lowering profits. MIPR Corp engineers recommended a better belt covering for their type of business—one with the top-rated cover for strength and resistance. This simple step cut the number of belt-related production delays in half, ensuring that higher production load would mean higher profits for the company.
