History of CenTrax

In the more than 60 years in which we have been working on improving conveyor belt systems, we have seen many tracker rollers pass by. Each with its plus and minus points. CenTrax was born out of a thorough analysis of the plus and minus points. A unique and patented belt tracking system with unrivalled tracking characteristics that will continue to do its job for many years and under all circumstances.

Mid 2009 the first prototype was installed at TATA Steel IJmuiden. In the following years the belt tracker, supported by modern simulation software, was further developed.

CenTrax is used worldwide to align conveyor belt installations, supported by a growing network of distributors.
