The belt has to be tensioned as much as needed to convey the maximal load without slip in all possible operational conditions. For PET-fabric belts, Habasit recommends a minimal initial tension of 0.3%.
The optimal tension depends on belt type and operating conditions - should not exceed 1%.The initial tension of processing belts like printing blankets depends on application and machine  Back
