The Tru-Trainer® idler has a patented internal pivot that is perpendicular to the plane of the belt. Since the surface of the belt remains in contact with the roller over the entire width of the belt, the training action is far more effective then the conventional style of training idlers. As the belt starts to move off-center it will contact the tapered section of the roller on that side of the belt. The effect of this will be to force the roller to pivot on its central pivot causing the belt to come to its original position. Once the roller has steered the conveyor belt back to the center, the opposite side of the belt will contact the taper on the opposite ends of the idler and this will cause the idler to realign itself perpendicular to the belt.
