Causes of Misalignment due to conveyor problems. Pulleys may not be mounted level and square to the centre line of conveyor causing the belt to run off on the slack side. Idlers may not be properly aligned. The belt may not be loaded centrally. If the material loaded on the belt is offcenter then this will make the belt run off to the empty side.
