From Sheet-to-Sheet Press to R2R Double Belt Heat Press

From Sheet-to-Sheet Press to R2R Double Belt Heat Press

The year of 2019 is going to be closed.
We had many guests here this year. 
Many of them brought their special material and we did experiments and evaluation together here.
Some of them found DYMCO web site in their Internet search or got info from our blog and were motivated try tests at DYMCO lab.
One of issues of our clients is how to shift to the volume production that includes heating, pressing and cooling.  Ordinary machines cannot produce a lot, covering these process.
Here we suggest you to examine our Double Belt Heat and Press Unit.
Like an illustration below, the post guide press machine on your left presses the work one by one.
Volume production cannot be expected.
The unit on your right, however, 2 belts continuously heat, press, and cool the work n R2R basis.
Volume production and production cost decrease are gained. 

Cross Section of Post Guide Press (left) and Double Belt Heat Press (Right)
In Double Belt Unit there are 3 process, Orange Area 1 preheating, Orange Area 2 Heating, and Blue Area of Cooling.

This heat and press test involves 3 elements of temperature, pressure and time.  We cannot easily guess the results.  So why not come hear and see what happens?

Did You Touch a Welded Area of Metal Belt?

Did You Touch a Welded Area of Metal Belt?

 We make metal endless belts by butt welding.
You may wonder 'Is the welding line really beautiful?'
We prepare for wedling samples so that you can see and touch its flatness.
They are right in the picture below.

From the front, thickness is 0.05mm, 0.08mm, 0.1mm, 0.15mm, 0.2mm, and 0.3mm.
If you need flatter state, we can offer polishing on the welding line.

Highly-Functional Film Expo Tokyo Show 2019

Highly-Functional Film Expo Tokyo Show 2019

We thank all of you for your coming to DYMCO at this show on Dec. 4 to 6.

There espetially cylinder-type pattern molds below caught attention.

In this picture the original rigid mold sits on the left.  We call it Mother.
There are fine patterns on its surface.
From Mother we make copies.

First we copy patterns from outside of Mother.
That sits in the middle.
Patterns are copied on the inside surface of this cilynder.

Then we copy these patterns again.
The result is three cylinders on the right.
Patterns are copied on the outer surface.  They look gray in the picture.
No seam on the entire surface!

This way oce Mother is made, Mother copies are made, too,
resultiing in substantial cost decrease.

Now the present diameter is 120mm.
Please contact us for these molds.

Features of Metal Belts

Features of Metal Belts

Today we review basic features of steel belts.
The chart below is  comparison with elastic plastic and rubber belts.

Here we find clearly standing features of metal belts.
These good things may help issues or problems when using plastic or rubber belts.

Of course we know that metal belts have also weak points like belt life and wear powders.

Steel Belt Features with Comparison with plastic and rubber belts
Steel Belt Features
Plastic and Rubber belt
Uniform thickness
Slightly inferior
Stabel Power Transmission

Linear drive transmission, Improved positioning
Slightly bad
Reduction of workpiece charging
Heat Resistant
Slightly bad
Relatively small effect from heat
Slightly inferior

With thes advantages we'd like to challenge issues of our clients and users.
Please be free to send us your problems and questions

DYMCO Serves Stainless Steel Belt Food Conveyor

DYMCO Serves Stainless Steel Belt Food Conveyor

Many conveyors are working in Food production, plastic belt conveyors in most cases.
But DYMCO make food conveyors using stainless steel belts.

Metal belts are superior in life and shows resistance against corrosion and chemicals in cleaning materials.
Stainless steel belts best fit heating, drying, and cooling.

Stainless steel itself does not kill bacteria,
but it rejects incoming of viable bacteria on to belt surface.
Bacterial does not grow in the belts. 
Food items are also directly placed on the a clean metal belt surface.
These good things are only found in metal belts.

No atrophy or deterioration take place either when washing with very hot water or Alkaline chemicals.

The tail of our conveyor is easily lifted up so that washing and belt exchanges are done smoothly.

DYMCO's Stainless Steel Belt Food Conveyor

Food conveyance tests in our lab are also welcome.

Heat Transfer by Surface Contact / Dimco Cooling Roll for film forming

Heat Transfer by Surface Contact / Dymco Cooling Roll for film forming 

The Japanese people are becoming great rugby fans, enjoying every match of Rugby World Cup 2019 held in Japan.
It is a big news for us that Japan could join the best 8 teams for the first time.

Now back to DYMCO products, I introduce “Cooling Roll” today.
This is a special product in a way that the outer surface is has a thin-walled cylindrical metal sleeve completely seamless, without any seam.  Inside this sleeve lies a rubber-coated roll. 

Cooling water circulates In this clearance between the outside metal seamless roll and the inside rubber roll.

The cooling capacity depends on how much contact area can be gained when this cooling roll is pressed against the object to be cooled (usually a rigid roll).

Currently, we are setting parts and units to watch the actual heat transfer performance
and are making further improvements to meet the demands of users.

The upper roll is our cooling roll and the lower roll is a hard rigid roll

We have provided φ100 x 950L to a user for trial.
The larger size is producible.
Cooling roll size is sometimes restricted by size of the outer metal seamless sleeve.
But we welcome your questions and are looking forward to discussions with you.


DYMCO is tackling Japan's challenges, environmental issues and an aging society

DYMCO is tackling Japan's challenges, environmental issues and an aging society

Big typhoons have damaged many areas in our country this year.
Some say this is caused by global warming,
and that these big typhoons will come from now on, too.
At the same Japan's super aging society is also an important issue.
Together with young labor shortage, need of automation and  labor saving is increasing.
DYMCO face these issues.
We develop and sell devices or parts to support solutions, like
stringer belts to connect solar cells to form solar panels and
metal open bands driving scalar robots.
these also help automation and labor saving in handling thin materials.
