Metal Drive Tapes and Timing Pulleys for Robotics

Optimized Material Handling Equipment

The robotics industry benefits from stainless steel metal timing belts and drive tapes—also known as drive bands or belt drives. These products can be fitted with specialized, perforated end tabs for added durability and reliability in automated material handling equipment and other applications to achieve accurate and repeatable results.

Motion loss and backlash of gears and timing belts can result in inaccurate positioning and robotic movement; stainless steel drive tapes provide a sound solution to these issues. Choose Belt Technologies PureSteel® products for such applications as:

  • Automated material handling
  • Carriage positioning
  • LCD production
  • Optical element drives
  • Robotic arms

The Advantage of Stainless Steel

Able to withstand extreme environments such as high or low temperatures, and with vacuum compatibility, metal timing belts and drive tapes reliably perform demanding tasks where rapid acceleration, precise positioning and repetitive operations are required. They are also sanitary and easy to clean, making them ideal for use in clean room environments.
