Since early 2016, Belt Technologies, Inc. has expanded our in-house capabilities to include custom laser cutting and perforation services. The laser cutting and custom laser-cut perforation patterns of metal conveyor belts, timing belts, and drive tapes can now be handled at the Belt facility itself. The elimination of secondary shops allows for cost-effective production and the reduction of overall turnaround time.
Laser Cutting Is Precise, Efficient, and Cost-Effective
Laser cutting is an advantageous method for cutting, contouring, and perforating metal drive tapes, timing belts, and conveyor belts. Compared to other methods of cutting and perforating, lasers are low in impact and high in precision. The benefits of laser cutting include:
- Clean, burr-free, and precise edges
- Low thermal influence
- Extremely fine contours and inner edges
- No material deformation
- The ability to cut virtually any material down to 0.003” in thickness
- High efficiency
- Reliable positional accuracy
Laser cutting is an ideal way to add perforations or other features to projects requiring precision, accuracy, and the utmost cleanliness of all parts and materials.
In-House Laser Cutting Services for Faster Turnaround Times
Laser cutting is faster and more efficient than high-impact methods and chemical etching. It requires no clean up and its finished products are ready to ship immediately. Multiple parts can be nested and cut into a single program and last-minute programming adjustments are easy to make. Now that laser cutting will be performed at our facility, Belt Technologies has the ability to provide these services and produce laser-cut materials faster and more affordably than ever before.
