Cylinders, also known as metal tubes or sleeves, can be produced in a wide range of widths, lengths and diameters as required by customer application. Belt Technologies typically produces metal cylinders using 300-series stainless steel, but material options are easily adjusted based on customer preference or application requirements. Stainless steel is a durable and versatile material that is resistant to chemical corrosion and physical impact and is ideal for automation applications that deal with extreme temperatures.
Customized Metal Cylinders for Your Automated Application
Our expert welders are able to produce PureSteel® stainless steel cylinders with very high tolerance requirements; tolerance requirements as low as .001” are possible. The average diameter range varies between 1” (25.4 mm) to 10” (254 mm), though Belt Technologies has produced cylinders up to 66.8” (1697 mm) for industrial application equipment. In terms of width, we have the capability to produce wide cylinders with a higher limit around 36″ (900 mm), and can provide surface coatings or perforation patterns via our in-house laser perforation services, if necessary.
Many companies will augment metal cylinders with attachments after receiving them. In some applications, metal sleeves are designed to be expanded with intense heat, put into place, and then allowed to cool in position. Our expert engineers are able to provide correct adjustments for reliable and accurate inner/outer diameters so your assembly process can be completed without any unexpected issues.
When it comes to high-tolerance cylinders, Belt Technologies will provide expert advice, precise dimensions and reliable service to ensure your cylinders perform as expected. To learn more about PureSteel® stainless steel cylinders, contact us today.
