Enhance Automated Assembly Capabilities with Metal Conveyors, Timing Belts, and Drive Tapes

Stainless steel conveyor belts, timing belts, and drive tapes are durable and versatile—they are able to withstand extreme temperatures, vacuum environments, and rigorous sterilization processes. They are long lasting and reliable, and exhibit high resistance to corrosion.

Because they are made from high-quality stainless steel, our metal conveyor belts, timing belts, and drive tapes:

  • Have an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Perform highly accurate and repeatable tasks
  • Will not generate particulates
  • Do not require lubrication

As they are virtually non-stretchable, metal conveyors, drive tapes, and timing belts are able to maintain operations with maximum precision and accuracy with minimal replacement or repair required.

Achieve Maximum Operational Efficiency and Product Quality with Stainless Steel

Automated stainless steel conveyor systems by Belt Technologies, Inc. are highly efficient. The accuracy and repeatability of metal conveyors, drive tapes, and timing belts allow for optimized cycle times and maximum product throughput. A flexible, modular design enables automated assembly systems to be rearranged or repurposed to accommodate new products and assembly processes. This allows manufacturers to maintain adaptability and maximize production output.

Our engineers understand that reaching full factory potential is the ultimate goal of any automated assembly system. Successful automated production requires reliable and accurate positioning, timing, and fixturing. Our team of experts will help you develop custom stainless steel fixtures and conveyor systems to increase your efficiency, safety, and profitability while maintaining maximum product quality.

Automated Assembly System Applications

Stainless steel belts are highly customizable and can be manufactured with custom perforation patterns, custom attachments, and specialized surface coatings for reliable product transportation. The flexible design capabilities and unique properties of stainless steel make metal belts ideal for a wide range of automated assembly applications, including:

  • Sorting and packing
  • Pick-and-place equipment
  • Nested component transport
  • Drive tapes for robotic arms and carriage positioning
  • Vertical indexing
  • UV and thermal curing

Our metal drive tapes and timing belts are manufactured from the same high-quality stainless steel as our endless metal conveyor belts. Stainless steel timing belts are manufactured with precision perforations that can be produced through a variety of methods, including mechanical impact, chemical, etching, laser cutting, and other non-impact methods as needed. They are highly accurate, virtually non-stretchable, and ideal for a variety of applications including:

  • Timing
  • Carriage positioning
  • Vacuum conveying
  • Vacuum suction for product handling
  • Food processing and packaging
  • Solar cell assembly
  • Pharmaceutical production and processing

Metal drive tapes can be fitted with a wide variety of specialized end attachments and perforations as required by design specifications. They perform with zero or near-zero backlash, providing highly precise robotic movement. Stainless steel drive tapes are excellent for applications such as:

  • Plotters
  • Optical element drives
  • Robotic arm actuators
  • Read/write head positioning
  • Traditional and 3D printing
