June 14, 2017 2nd Day at ATX EAST

Now we are in New York as an exhibitor at ATX EAST and meet lot of peole. 
It is quite interesting to learn objects and process people think on the suction conveyors.
We are also surprised that many visitors get interested in sales representatives for our meal belts.
We have another day tomorrow.

June 8, 2017 Let's meet at ATX EAST at New York DYMCO#2624

We are excited to meet you at DYMCO booth #2624 in ATX EAST AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY  at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, USA.  

Tuesday-Wednesday, June 13-14, 2017 10:00am – 4:00pm
Thursday, June 15, 2017 10:00am – 3:00pm
Click here for Floor Map.

Our target in this exhibition is to find sales reps and users in the U.S. to expand our metal belt sales there.

We've provided metal belts for more than 30 years.
Evaluation on our belts is established by leading Japanese companies in medical and health care, semiconductors, automobiles, image processing, batteries, film forming, etc.

We gained this evaluation for we are capable to meet new processing needs.
Production technology is changing every day and there is always a chance for metal belts to be a core in the new automation process.
Why?
Because our metal belts own unique property like flatness, smoothness, rigidity, hygienity and conductivity as driving belts and transporting belts.
Sales reps and engineers can enjoy this potential in the state-of-the-art production technology together with DYMCO. 
This is insiring for sure. 
You will find our suction conveyor with a finely perforated metal belt on in this show and know it is true.

We are very much looking forward to talking with you.

June 1, 2017 Challenge to 10-micron thick Seamless Metal Belt

Our metal sleeves stand out in thin wall.
Since the rigidity is proportional to the cube of the thickness, it is possible to follow the smaller R (pulley) by reducing the thickness of the belt, Therefore thin-walled steel belt is in good balance with supple and high-tensile properties.
10 micron-thick metal seamless belt on φ5mm or 0.2'' rod

Normally our belt thickness is  0.05 to 0.6 mm or 0.002 to 0.024 inches.
This time we challenged the limit of thickness 10 micron.

10 micron-thick belt is a very delicate product and handling is very difficult. We are currently finding out applications.  The place I would like to recommend is a belt in a small space such as a micromachine, a knife edge tiny R belt, a cylindrical thin film shell, an electromagnetic wave shielding film, a special molding die and so on.

May 29, 2017 Corona Metal Belt or Pinning Belt

This is another metal belt application to support film sheet forming.
Conductivity of stainless steel works here.
Please refer to the illustration below.
 
 
 
Meted plastics goes out of T die and falls on the cooling roller.
Pinning system is working here to transport plastics smoothly from T die to the cooling roll so as to avoid fine air bubbles, thickness deviation and degrades of transparency.  
 
In this pinning system high voltage is applied to a metal belt.  Through this metal belt a positive charge covers plastics.
Whe the cooling roller is set negative, thin plastics is attached to the cooling roller instantly and plastic film is formed.

Pinning system becomes more effective when a metal belt is thinner.
Tungsten wire is often used.  Its thickness is 1.5 to 2mm or 0.06 to 0.08 inches.  When roller width is quite long, this wire sags.
To avoid slack tension is appled, then the wire may be broken.
 
When it comes to metal belt, thickness can be 50 micron or 0.002 inches.  Yet by additional width metal belts stand much tension.
 
Metal pinning belt is wound on a reel and delivered

May 24, 2017 Property of Metal Belts

Metal belts have worked as solutions for unprecendented needs.
This is because metal belts own unique features as below:

1) Robust and hard
2) Rigid, not easily deformed nor elongate
3) High responsiveness.  Motor rotations and parts movements are precisely transferred.
4) Clean.  No lubicant is required for driving meal belts.  Dusts and dirt are quite limited.
5) Hygine.  Vacterials do not grow and smell of products are easily washed away.
6) Extremely flat.  Metal belt is a flat rotating stage due to belt engineering and flat metal material.
7) Extremely smooth surface.  Polished surface is also of your choice.
8) Heat resistive.  Available under heat of mor than 300 degrees.
9) Cold resist.  Metal belts rotates in 50 degrees C below zero.
10) Magnetism.  Due to magnetism of metal belts, drive and control by magnet are possible.
11) Resistance against corrosion and chemicals.
12) High precision. Critical tolerance is met.  High speed is possible.

It is sure that one of these features will help you to go to new manufacturing methos.

May 17, 2017 Continuous Inspection Stage- Rotating Platen

We have talked on our suction conveyor very often.
It is good at transporting paper and films.
Yet its belt surface is always flat due to a flat belt and suction.
It is just like platen, rotating platen.
In general belt surface fluctuation in Z direction is within 50 microns while the belt is rotating. 
This is the best tool for continuous inspection by camera or laser.
Please look at belt surface in this video.

May 10, 2017 Cylindrical Patterning Mold Replica- More in Detail

We know that fine-patterned molds are more often used in thermal imprint, UV imprint, and printed electronics.  And needs on replica molds are also increasing due to high cost of the original fine-patterned molds.

Upon these needs, DYMCO is working on development of replica molds.
The outstanding feature is that we can make cylindrical, seamless replica by the primary and secondary deposition and transfer.

We have tried this dimension.
Replica roll diameter: 120mm
Pattern width: 60mm
凹凸 height in pattern: 20 microns and less
This is reference, so contact us for size required.

Patterns on flat plates can be transferred on cylindrical rolls.
We do the primary and secondary deposition and transfer patterns by our electro-forming technology and finally weld them to make them rolls.
