Sep. 19, 2017 Relationship between stainless steel belt thickness and its pulley diameter

Looking for a thin-walled stainless steel belt? Leave it up to Dymco!
(Of course we produce some thicker belts, too.)

Today we would like to talk about how to choose the suitable thickness of a stainless steel belt and the diameter of a pulley.

This is one of the most frequently asked questions.

The suitable thickness of the belt widely depends on your application or how you use the belt.

On our website, you can see our guideline to help you find out the suitable thickness of a belt.

Our guideline for choosing a belt and a pully

We frequently have requests such like “we would like to have a pulley with smaller diameter” “we would like to have a thicker belt”

Depending on the specifications and purposes, customers do not have to always follow our guideline.
In fact, some customers use our stainless steel belt in harder condition than we usually recommend

So if you are interested in trying our stainless steel belt, please do not hesitate to cantact us.

Our professional sales staff are pleased to help you.

Sep. 7, 2017 Video: Sucion transport of light, soft, and fragile work

We are working on a suction conveyor, becuase it can transport fragile things in stable state.
Here is a video to test transport of a piece of paper.

This air nozzle pushes air on this paper.
When it is not sucked, paper is blown.
Then it is sucked.  It is not shaken and stays on the belts.
Suction transport is fine for thin and light material.

Aug. 30, 2017 Stainless steel belt for heating transportation

Thank you very much for reading this blog of Dymco stainless steel belt.

Our heating and drying stainless steel belt conveyor can perform hot work discharged from the heating furnace, work heating conveyance at high temperature and so on.

Stainless steel belts are usually used under high temperature because of its heat resistance. It is smooth and hard surface so fraying and contaminations are not appeared from its surface. It is also sanitary because it is easy to wipe with dirt.

If you have some trouble with deterioration of belts and heat resistance, please contact us and try the steel belt conveyor by all means. You can also use these conveyors to avoid problems of mesh belts.

It is a better way to have a test before considering a concept.
We could have a test and send videos or pictures of result with your work.
Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Aug. 23, 2017 Heating and cooling conveyors

Here in Japan, the weather has been unstable for recent few weeks. We had a lot of rain.

Also, it has been cold in the morning, but hot in the day. This is unusual for this time of a year.

Well, Dymco has stainless steel belt conveyors available both in HEAT and COLD environment.

Dymco’s conveyors are made of stainless steel, so that they can endure those harsh environments.

If you have any problems with the transportation in heat or cold environment, please feel free to contact us.

Aug. 16, 2017 Metal Flexible Roll and Air Roll

There are 3 types of metal flexible rolls:
Air Pressure Type,
Coolant Circulation Type, and
Air Pressure Type with Backup Rubber

These are all Dymco original.
Either of them works with the metal solid roll.
Melted plastic material goes down from T dai and falls between the metal flexible roll and the metal solid roll.
Then, plastic material is pressed by the nipping surface created by this flexible roll.
Due to the flexible roll the nipping surface is created.
If two rolls are both solid metal rolls, they make line touch only, not nipping surface.

Air Pressure Type is made by the outer thin metal sleeve, one shaft and sides.  As air exists between the outer sleeve and a shaft, this roll is very ligh and gives moderate presure on films.

The outer sleeve is Nickel.  We find little defects on its surface and its hardness is higher than the ones in this industry.

Aug. 9, 2017 Fine Patterned NIckel Welded sleeve for the Nano-Imprinting and the Fine Pattern Imprinting.

In the field of the fine patterning process, the patterns of nano or submicron- order are often imprinted to substrates such as plastic films and sheet-type materials. The imprinted patterns give the substrates a certain feature or function. Those processes are done by the roll-to-roll process.

In those process, a pair of rolls is usually adopted; one roll that works as the imprint mold presses the other one. the substrates are pressed between the two rolls.
In the most cases, the patterns are directly engraved on the surface of a solid roll.

However, when it comes to the nano-order pattern where the patterns are ultrafine and complicated, it is hard to form the nano-order patterns directly on the surface of a solid roll.

To solve this, Dymco suggests to apply a manufacturing process of semiconductors.
First method is to attach a fine patterned sheet to the solid roll.  This sheet is electroformed Nickel.
Second methods is to weld several electroformed patterned Nickel plates to make them one endless sleeve.  Then a solid roll is inserted in this sleeve.
The patterned endless sleeve needs to be replaced by new one as it gets damaged (ex;deformation of the shape, the dirt on the surface)
So, the sleeve has to be easily attached and detached from the solid roll.   Additionally, the sleeve is required to fit tight and not to slip on the roll.

Therefore, Dymco designs and offers the solid rolls that fit tight with the sleeves, too.  This way the sleeve is easily detached and attached to the solid roll.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in our solid rolls.

Of course, Dymco is a stainless steel belt manufacturer.
But we are also capable of welding Nickel-electroformed patterned plates.
If you are interested in welding Ni-electroformed plates, contact us, too.

Aug. 2, 2017 “All stainless steel conveyor ” specialised in Hygiene, Easy handling, Heat resistance and Chemical resistance

This blog is to introduce "All stainless steel conveyor."  
'All stainless steel'  means both belt and frame are made of stainless steel.

This was produced primarily for the food industry and aims at security and safety, such as "hygiene" and "easy handling".

Like the conveyor frame, the belt is made from stainless steel.  So the belt is strong against rust.
In addition, since the stainless steel belt has very smooth surface,  it is quite easy to remove residues by water cleaning. And it is not necessary, either, to soak the belt in cleaning liquid or dry it.  In this easy maintenance the metal belt is superior to plastic belts.  
In addition to that, the conveyor body is polished to prevent adhesion of residues.

When exchanging the belt with the new one, you can remove only the belt.  You do not have to take off other parts from the conveyor body.

We will keep continuing to introduce products of us that meet the needs of our customers.
Converyor belt and frames are all stainless steel
