Endless BeltsOptimize automated operations with the strength and versatility of metal belts
PureSteel® endless metal belts are created by welding together two ends of a metal strip. High-energy beam-welding techniques, pioneered in the space program, form a high-integrity butt weld that is extremely strong and smooth.
Unique Properties and Capabilities of Metal Belts
Our PureSteel® metal belts are typically made of stainless steel to ensure longevity and durability under any conditions. Engineers may also choose from a variety of available alloys, which vary in resistance to chemicals, temperatures and corrosion. Belt material is selected based on the physical demands of the system, availability and cost.
Unlike polyester, nylon or cotton belts with rubber or plastic covers, PureSteel® metal belts can withstand temperature extremes, vacuum conditions and hostile, caustic environments. They are not susceptible to long-term wear and tear such as stretching or warping. Metal timing belts, metal conveyor belts and metal conveyor belt systems offer durability and strength while maintaining a lightweight flexibility for smooth, continuous operation.
PureSteel® metal belts do not generate component friction that would require lubrication, nor do they produce particulates or outgassing (as HTD or flat neoprene belts do). It is possible to sterilize them in an autoclave, making metal belts ideal for environments where cleanliness is paramount.
PureSteel® metal belts do not exhibit pulsation, which is often seen in inferior belting materials. This enables precise transmission of the control system’s motion profile. Our metal belts are manufactured for smooth edges and precise dimensions with very tight tolerances to ensure the most accurate and reliable motion possible. We are able to fabricate metal belts with a station-to-station pitch accuracy of ±0.0005”.
