2017.01.05 A Happy New Year!


I would like to greet all of our customers and coworkers at this opportunity.

Last year, we have seen a series of unpredictable events like Brexit, the election of US president, a big earthquake in Kyushu island, and disaster caused by abnormal weather in all parts of the country.

When we face the uncertainty of the world, we need bird’s eye view.

This year is the year of Rooster (in twelve zodiac signs), so as the proverb says “Better be the bill of a rooster than the tail of an ox” , I am proud of being a leader of small group.

The Dymco Company is a small corporation, however, we are leading company in steel belt business thanks to our innovative technology of high quality steel belt manufacturing.

Being too proud of current small success is a nonsense. When the business model of Dymco is attractive, the entry of our competitor is inevitable. So catching up to diversified market requirements is essential activity for us. Through executing the development of new belt application with our customer, we would like to establish the relationship of mutual trust.

I wish you a Happy New Year .

2016.12.28 Feel free to give a trial on our steel belt conveyors

In order to satisfy the customers’ requests and inquiries from the research and development field, Dymco is working hard to produce more than a steel belt, we have developed it into various forms of conveyors, and they are provided on the global market.

We usually recommend our customers a trial on our demonstration conveyors in our laboratory, to design a product that satisfies the customers’ demand.
Thankfully, the inquiries for the trial have been rapidly increasing. 68 companies had visited our laboratory for trials in the last fiscal year,ending in July 2016.  And we already welcomed 40 groups.  Though it’s been only 5 months since this fiscal year started, the number of the visitors for trials has reached more than a half of it in last fiscal year.
We expect that the more customers than ever would visit for trials.  We feel that those customers are considering our steel belt as a key to develop the new technology and products in the world’s research and development field.

Through the trial on our conveyors, the customers can see, touch and experiment on the actual conveyors. The results of the trial on the conveyors helps the customers design their own conveyor for a trial.

We have two main conveyors for in our lab.  Both of them are conveyors that provide continuous transportation by making use of unique specialty of the steel belt.
One of them is the suction conveyor.  It is suitable for processing thin functional materials, keeping the substrates flat and protected from wrinkles and strains, the inkjet printing, the image inspections.

The suction conveyor
This conveyor can vacuum the substrates both on top and bottom.



 
The double steel belt heat press conveyor

The other one is the double steel belt heat press conveyor. This one is suitable for laminating plastic films, forming materials under heat and pressure, transporting the substrate under heat.

A few more different steel belt conveyors are available for the trial. So, feel free to contact us for trials.


We believe the trials and the experiments widely help the customers design the production process of new product.

We always welcome your visit.

2016.12.14 Disposable Seamless Patterned Mold

 

I will introduce you today our new seamless replica belt and sleeve.

Characteristic of these products are copied fine pattern by mother mould by deposition and transfer. This method could transfer from master mold one after another so it could reduce costs for manufacturing molds.
 

Disposable molds


Set mold on a roller
Set fined belt on a unit

What we recommend is a situation to consume molds for molding or printing use in a short term, use mass quantity of molds, copy the best mould which is manufactured occasionally or avoid weakness of welding line.

We are keep trying to expand a technology of stainless steel belts and metal sleeves and provide solutions to customers.

2016.12.21 Try Suction Steel Belt in the New Year

 
Just 2 weeks to go till the end of 2016.
Hope you have many good memories of this year.
Dymco has received many contacts this year, especially on suction conveyor or vacuum belts.

Transportation under suction protects fragile and thin materials.  It helps handling and transportation of thin films, paper, new emerging thin materials.  Once those are on belts, their positions are fixed by suction and tension is not applied to those material.

Example of Ink jet printing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kh4655-_dI
Paper is conveyed just 1mm under  the ink jet head

If you are thinking this kind of transportation for your new material or new process, it becomes quite easier to test it on our suction conveyor.  We welcome your visit.

2016.11.30 Awarded: Yokohama intellectual property mirai company


Dymco is honored to announce that we were approved as Yokohama intellectual property mirai company on Nov. 30th.
This is a Yokohama City’s official title for the potential local businesses seeking for the further development through the management of intellectual property.
A company approved with this title can get an official support from Yokohama City. Thankfully, we have been approved for this title for several years straight.

For recent few years, Dymco has concentrated our efforts on expanding our business to the production of processing systems from belt supply.  Through the expansion of our business, we have faced many hurdles, such as the management of intellectual property including patent. But, We decided to work harder than ever, to achieve the further development.
Source of this activity lies in technical demands from customers and  forunners to confront unexperienced needs.


We introduced TRIO, three steel belt-based processing systems to the
 flexible electronics industry.
1. Double steel belts heat and press system

2. Suction conveyor

3. Steel belt takt drive system

And now, we add one more item, a pattterned belt that continuously trascribes its fine patterns on to the incoming material.


Thin metal sleeve with micro pattern on its surface

This way steel belts are leading process for finer electronics circuits, devices and printing electronics. 
Therefore, this might sound exaggerating though, there’s opportunity to develop the new intellectual property. So we are working hard to respond customers’ inquires every day.
