Stainless steel belts in robotics applications

Belt Technologies has recently attended the Mechanical Components & Materials Technology Expo. The event, also referred to as “M-Tech,â€? is held annually each June at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan and is one of the largest exhibitions of mechanical and processing technology.

“M-Tech has been a great experience each year that we’ve attended,â€? said president of Belt Technologies, Alan Wosky. “This year we were happy to present a demonstration of our stainless steel belt technology as it applies to the robotics industry, which has promising potential for industries such as semiconductor assembly and clean room environments.â€?

At the Belt Technologies booth, visitors were presented a demonstration of stainless steel belt technology operating in a working robotic arm. Stainless steel belt technology could improve robotic arms, namely those used in the automated assembly lines of the semiconductor industry and those used in clean room environments. Belt Technologies also showcased an attachment conveyor belt to highlight the repeatability (0.05 to 0.127 mm) of steel belts, which makes them ideal for the pick-and-place conveyor lines that drive automation production lines. The company also provided their design guide and website, both of which are now available in Japanese.
