Double Steel Belt Heat Press Conveyor

In our lab we have one unit of double steel belt heat press conveyor.  This was made 2 years ago and has been open to our customers. 

This explicit features are
1. Compact.  Much smaller than conventional heat press units.
    Pulley diameter 90mm, while conventional pulley 800mm.
    Center distance 490mm.
2. Best for testing before volume production
Double steel belt heat press conveyor:
2 coated steel belts capture material and apply pressure and heat
We welcome you here in Yokohama for testing with this unit.

Life test of steel belts and metal belts

Dymco is doing belt life examination, for our belts must perform well in various applications such standard conveyors, all stainless steel food conveyors, intermittent drive system, cooling and heating system, or suction / vacuum conveyors.
The picture below is high-speed belt life test unit.
Test belt width is 2 to 50mm and its length is 1000mm max.

Belt speed is 500~1000m/min.
This test goes on every day for 24 hours and data is stored.
We do this test until belts are broken or belts mark theoretical maximum life.  When belts are broken extremely in a short period of time, we examine its cause and improve belts.  This is one of reasons that our belts are getting better in belt life.

Thickness of our steel metal belt

Dymco's steel metal belts are almost less than 1 mm thick.

Thickness 0.2mm and 0.3mm, they look very thin.
However, they are belt material.
In other words, they are tensile to stand repeated rotations.
We need a lot of force to bend 0.3mm -thick belt with our hands.

The picture below shows how the belt material bends by its own weight.
Thickness is , from the front, 0.05, 0.08, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, and 0.3mm.
Various thickness of steel metal belt

The front on is 0.05mm thick, thinner than human hair (0.07mm).
Yet it is spring type and looks arc.  This way steel metal belts are rigid.

Precise drive puropose metal endless belt: Dymco ring rolled endless belt

We manufacture ring rolled endless belts with stainless steel.  These belts are used for precise driving in many forms.

Ring rolled endless belt is completely seamless endless.  Steps by welding are not found after repeated rolling.  So this belt is often evaluated for its precision compared with redundancy and backlash found in plastic belts and timing belts.
Precise driving of X-Y tables, driving of printer rollers, or trial of CVT belts.

Also the minimum thickness of this belt is 40 micron meter.  It allows introduction of small pulleys.  We may be able to make it thinner.  So if you need to used small pulleys, please contact us.
