K-Self Aligning Idlers by Kinder & Co. for both trough and return applications are used to overcome belt miss-tracking. They are made to suit the existing belt profile and are constructed using a centre pivot bearing. The most common is the “pivoting base style.”

This type of K-Self aligning idler in both trough and return applications automatically provide belt centering. The outboard servo rollers cause the idler frame to pivot as they contact the belt edge and this swivel action causes the belt to realign automatically, achieving proper belt tracking for a trouble-free operation.
