Robot Arm Driving Belt in Vacuum

We are getting more and more inquiries on vacuum environment.
In this field DYMCO is capable to suggest solutions to driving belts, which control motion of pick-and-place robot arms.

We find encouraging advantages of stainless steel open bands for finer manufacturing like semiconductor device.

(1) Metal open bands are very thin.  Compact and very light units are made.

(2) Metal bands are rigid and show little elongation.
     Speed for drive and halt can be increased.  Speedy motions are realized.

(3) Removal of backlash.  Band length ends can be fixed on a pulley.

(4) Vibrations are limited when arms rotate or halt.  Driving noises are also low.  
     Metal open bands work without a drop of oil.

(5)  Stainless steel bands are tough against heat, corrosion and abrasion.
      Also limited dusts and out gas are good reasons of choice 
      in vacuum, under heat, and in clean rooms.
