2016.12.28 Feel free to give a trial on our steel belt conveyors

In order to satisfy the customers’ requests and inquiries from the research and development field, Dymco is working hard to produce more than a steel belt, we have developed it into various forms of conveyors, and they are provided on the global market.

We usually recommend our customers a trial on our demonstration conveyors in our laboratory, to design a product that satisfies the customers’ demand.
Thankfully, the inquiries for the trial have been rapidly increasing. 68 companies had visited our laboratory for trials in the last fiscal year,ending in July 2016.  And we already welcomed 40 groups.  Though it’s been only 5 months since this fiscal year started, the number of the visitors for trials has reached more than a half of it in last fiscal year.
We expect that the more customers than ever would visit for trials.  We feel that those customers are considering our steel belt as a key to develop the new technology and products in the world’s research and development field.

Through the trial on our conveyors, the customers can see, touch and experiment on the actual conveyors. The results of the trial on the conveyors helps the customers design their own conveyor for a trial.

We have two main conveyors for in our lab.  Both of them are conveyors that provide continuous transportation by making use of unique specialty of the steel belt.
One of them is the suction conveyor.  It is suitable for processing thin functional materials, keeping the substrates flat and protected from wrinkles and strains, the inkjet printing, the image inspections.

The suction conveyor
This conveyor can vacuum the substrates both on top and bottom.

The double steel belt heat press conveyor

The other one is the double steel belt heat press conveyor. This one is suitable for laminating plastic films, forming materials under heat and pressure, transporting the substrate under heat.

A few more different steel belt conveyors are available for the trial. So, feel free to contact us for trials.

We believe the trials and the experiments widely help the customers design the production process of new product.

We always welcome your visit.

2016.12.14 Disposable Seamless Patterned Mold


I will introduce you today our new seamless replica belt and sleeve.

Characteristic of these products are copied fine pattern by mother mould by deposition and transfer. This method could transfer from master mold one after another so it could reduce costs for manufacturing molds.

Disposable molds

Set mold on a roller
Set fined belt on a unit

What we recommend is a situation to consume molds for molding or printing use in a short term, use mass quantity of molds, copy the best mould which is manufactured occasionally or avoid weakness of welding line.

We are keep trying to expand a technology of stainless steel belts and metal sleeves and provide solutions to customers.

2016.12.21 Try Suction Steel Belt in the New Year

Just 2 weeks to go till the end of 2016.
Hope you have many good memories of this year.
Dymco has received many contacts this year, especially on suction conveyor or vacuum belts.

Transportation under suction protects fragile and thin materials.  It helps handling and transportation of thin films, paper, new emerging thin materials.  Once those are on belts, their positions are fixed by suction and tension is not applied to those material.

Example of Ink jet printing
Paper is conveyed just 1mm under  the ink jet head

If you are thinking this kind of transportation for your new material or new process, it becomes quite easier to test it on our suction conveyor.  We welcome your visit.

2016.11.30 Awarded: Yokohama intellectual property mirai company

Dymco is honored to announce that we were approved as Yokohama intellectual property mirai company on Nov. 30th.
This is a Yokohama City’s official title for the potential local businesses seeking for the further development through the management of intellectual property.
A company approved with this title can get an official support from Yokohama City. Thankfully, we have been approved for this title for several years straight.

For recent few years, Dymco has concentrated our efforts on expanding our business to the production of processing systems from belt supply.  Through the expansion of our business, we have faced many hurdles, such as the management of intellectual property including patent. But, We decided to work harder than ever, to achieve the further development.
Source of this activity lies in technical demands from customers and  forunners to confront unexperienced needs.

We introduced TRIO, three steel belt-based processing systems to the
 flexible electronics industry.
1. Double steel belts heat and press system
2. Suction conveyor
3. Steel belt takt drive system

And now, we add one more item, a pattterned belt that continuously trascribes its fine patterns on to the incoming material.

Thin metal sleeve with micro pattern on its surface

This way steel belts are leading process for finer electronics circuits, devices and printing electronics. 
Therefore, this might sound exaggerating though, there’s opportunity to develop the new intellectual property. So we are working hard to respond customers’ inquires every day.

2016.11.09 Double steel belt system for heating, cooling, and pressing

Our doublesteel belt heat/cooling press conveyor is a very suitable process system for the lamination or the adhesion of material like films.

The double steel belt heat/cooling press conveyor presses the object between two separated steel belts, while it heats/cools down the object at the same time.

The double steel belt heat press conveyor also presses the object continuously.

Therefore it is able to press the long sheet type materials.
The conventional batch type hot press system cannot press or heat continuously.  It cannot process a long material either.

If you are looking for a processing system which is able to continuously laminate, form, or adhere the materials, we recommend you to consider our double steel belt heat/cooling press conveyor.

A test is available on our demonstration conveyor. If you are interested in the test, please feel free to contact us and visit our laboratory.

2016.11.02 Dymco’s low-inertia roll

Hello, I am Mukaisaka at Dymco R&D division.

Today’s topic is the low-inertia roll which Dymco started to offer recently.

The mechanism of this product is a thin metal sleeve (electrically casted nickel) which revolves around inner cylinder floating on thin air layer as illustrated here.

As you can imagine easily, the mechanical loss of rotation is minimal.

Even a light weight of small coin (one gram) is enough to initiate the rotation.

See the demonstration video.

2016.10.26 Metal belt and DYMCO's Environmental Policy

We established our envoironmental policy in 2015.
It states,
'DYMCO, LTD. will pursuit to protect nature and to improve techonology that supports people and natural envoironments in our activities of steel belt manufacturing and sales, thus contribute to our society.'

For instance, when we ship belts, cushoning material is made from cornstarch.  This is combustible waste.

Cushoning material to prootect metal belts during shipping
Material inside the belt is cornstarch-made.

  This is only a part of what we do.  We will further work to reduce the environmental impact.
