Fine-Pattern Metal Sleeve for High Functional Film Production Oct. 13, 2017

Sleeve surface is covered with fine patterns.This is the new application to be used for high functional film production.

How can we pattern sleeve surface?

There are two ways.

First, we weld fine-patterned plates and make them one sleeve.
The welding lines are almost as flat as the parent surface.

Second, we make a replica sleeve from the original roll.
The original roll is covered with fine patterns.
It is a hard roll, not elastic at all.
These patterns are made by drilling or laser and is expensive.

By copying the pattern from this hard roll,
we make a thin wall sleeve.
Fine patterns are copied on a thin wall sleeve.
We can make this sleeve repeatedly.
Fine-Patterned Endless Mold

Then customers can use these copied sleeves just like a jacket sleeve.
The original hard roll is not used for pattern transfer on films.
It is kept as a mother roll or a mold to produce copied sleeves.
Then maintenance cost of this expensive mother roll goes down a lot.

Today we introduce our sleeve sample.

This sleeves is no-seam by our original flow forming technology.
You do not find any steps on its surface.

The sample sleeve is stainless steel,
thickness 35 microns
inside diameter 30mm = 1.18"
length 270mm = 10.63"

They are free of charge when shipping cost is paid.
This shipping is up to two sleeves to one customer.

Sep. 28, 2017 Double Steel Belt Press Heating System - Metal Belt Demonstration Conveyor

It is now autumn here in YOKOHAMA.
It is cold in the morning and evening, while it is warm or even hot in the daytime.
I try to keep myself in good conditions not to catch a cold.

Now in Dymco, we receive a number of inquiries on our Double Belt Press Heat System these days.   In this system two stainless steel belts catch work, then heat and press it to change it to a new form.
In these inquiries, work and conditions of pressing and heating vary in each customer.

How can we find solutions for different operating conditions?
Trial is the best.  "Seeing is believing," right?

If you consider our Double Steel Belt Press Heat System, why not doing heat and press tests using your real work?
It is far better than thinking it over on the desk.

One customer came over here with their work and did heating tests in our conveyor.
As a result, we found that it was possible to heat two different kinds of work and stick them together.

We have Double Steel Belt Press Heat System in our lab for your trials.
Please be free to ask questions to us. 
We are very much pleased to challenge your requirements.

Sep. 26, 2017 Tests of stainless steel belt by demonstration machines

It became a season that makes Yokohama feel easy to spend all the time and makes me think that it has approached autumn.

We get many inquiries.

There are many people who are considering steel belts for the first time.
What is the advantage of steel belt? What is difference between steel belt and plastic belts or rubber belts?

We think the reasons as bellow,
· Low dust generation, no fraying
· Good flatness of belt surface
· Excellent in heat resistance, corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance
· Good hygiene
· Less growth
· Good thermal conductivity. etc.

Applications include a power transmission unit such as robot arm drive, high precision tact drive unit as a conveyor, continuous conveyor, and recently it has been used as a "Suction conveyor",  "Double belt press conveyor" or "Heating conveyor”.

We have many inquiries as equipment like these.

For Suction conveyors, Double belt press conveyors, and Heating conveyors, we are preparing demonstration machines that can conduct simple tests in-house of Dymco.
In addition, we prepare "inquiry sheet" at Dymco and ask the conditions from customers to do design and strength calculation.
Please contact us from inquiry form top page of our website.

In most cases we do such tests free of charge.
We are waiting for your contact.

Sep. 19, 2017 Relationship between stainless steel belt thickness and its pulley diameter

Looking for a thin-walled stainless steel belt? Leave it up to Dymco!
(Of course we produce some thicker belts, too.)

Today we would like to talk about how to choose the suitable thickness of a stainless steel belt and the diameter of a pulley.

This is one of the most frequently asked questions.

The suitable thickness of the belt widely depends on your application or how you use the belt.

On our website, you can see our guideline to help you find out the suitable thickness of a belt.

Our guideline for choosing a belt and a pully

We frequently have requests such like “we would like to have a pulley with smaller diameter” “we would like to have a thicker belt”

Depending on the specifications and purposes, customers do not have to always follow our guideline.
In fact, some customers use our stainless steel belt in harder condition than we usually recommend

So if you are interested in trying our stainless steel belt, please do not hesitate to cantact us.

Our professional sales staff are pleased to help you.

Sep. 7, 2017 Video: Sucion transport of light, soft, and fragile work

We are working on a suction conveyor, becuase it can transport fragile things in stable state.
Here is a video to test transport of a piece of paper.

This air nozzle pushes air on this paper.
When it is not sucked, paper is blown.
Then it is sucked.  It is not shaken and stays on the belts.
Suction transport is fine for thin and light material.

Aug. 30, 2017 Stainless steel belt for heating transportation

Thank you very much for reading this blog of Dymco stainless steel belt.

Our heating and drying stainless steel belt conveyor can perform hot work discharged from the heating furnace, work heating conveyance at high temperature and so on.

Stainless steel belts are usually used under high temperature because of its heat resistance. It is smooth and hard surface so fraying and contaminations are not appeared from its surface. It is also sanitary because it is easy to wipe with dirt.

If you have some trouble with deterioration of belts and heat resistance, please contact us and try the steel belt conveyor by all means. You can also use these conveyors to avoid problems of mesh belts.

 Heating conveyor with Furnace
It is a better way to have a test before considering a concept.
We could have a test and send videos or pictures of result with your work.
Please do not hesitate to contact us.
