Belt Technologies adds laser welding machine

May 11, 2023

Belt Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of custom metal belt conveyors, has added a fourth laser welding machine to its Agawam, Mass., facility. The machine increases the company's laser welding capacity by more than 30% and allows it to weld parts up to 36 in. wide, even in thin materials, the company reports.

Suitable for stainless steel welding, the laser is contained within a partially automated workcell designed by Belt, including proprietary welding fixtures. The laser cell primarily operates by seamlessly welding the two ends of a metal strip together to form an endless belt, as well as to attach end tabs and other features. The new laser cell can handle a greater variety of belt types and sizes, helping to alleviate capacity constraints at any of the other three stations.
