V-guide mechanisms consist of a continuous strip of durable plastic or rubber applied to the underside of the belt. The V-guide strip is designed to fit into a corresponding V-shaped groove on the conveyor pulley, providing additional support and stability to the belt as it moves along the conveyor. This helps to prevent the belt from drifting off track or becoming misaligned, reducing the risk of damage to the belt, conveyor components, and the products being transported.

Belt conveyor V-guides are particularly useful in applications where precise belt positioning is crucial, such as in the packaging, food processing, and material handling industries.
