Steel belts

Steel betls

HIGH STRENGTH-TO-WEIGHT RATIO
This is an advantage in practically every application where high strength, lightweight or both are important.
DURABILITY
Metal belts can withstand sustained exposure to extremes of temperature, hostile environments and vacuum. A variety of alloys maybe used each with its own resistance to chemicals, humidity and corrosion. Engineers generally select a belt material based on physical properties, availability and cost.
NO LUBRICATION
Unlike the links of a chain, a metal belt is a single element and, therefore, does not generate any component friction that requires lubrication. This reduces system maintenance, improves reliability and keeps the system clean.
NON STRETCHABLE
Spring steels with a high modulus of elasticity make metal belts virtually non stretchable as compared to other belt types and chain. This makes them ideal in high performance applications for precision positioning.
SMOOTH OPERATION
Metal belts are free from the pulsation of chordal action often seen in other belt types and chain. This results in precise translation of the control system motion profile.
ACCURATE AND REPEATABLE
Metal timing belts can be fabricated with a pitch accuracy of ±0.013 mm station to station. This high degree of precision is extremely valuable in designing indexing, positioning or processing equipment.
GOOD THERMAL AND ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY
Metal belts can transmit energy in the form of heat, cold and electricity.
NO STATIC BUILD UP
Metal belts discharge static electricity, a crucial capability in the manufacture of electronic components such as integrated circuits and surface mount devices.
CLEAN
Unlike timing or flat neoprene belts, metal belts do not generate particulate and are ideal for food and pharmaceutical processing.
CLEAN ROOM COMPATIBLE
Metal belts do not require lubricants and will not generate dust that would introduce foreign substances into clean room environments. Additionally, they may be sterilized in an autoclave.
PRECISE CONSTRUCTION
Edges are smooth and dimensions are tightly toleranced.
