Steel Belt and Tracking 10: Edge Positioning ControlCase 1

EPC worked when belt width was 500mm and conveyor length was 3000mm. Temperature was from 20 to 300 degrees C. In general under these temperature there appear deformations and waves. These deformations hamper tracking by crown pulleys, while V-guides begin to deteriorate due to heat. However, this 500mm-wide belt rotated fine with EPC and we could obtain data as below that shows waves along belt width direction.
