02-megadyne-megalinear-3d

Technological advances in 3D printing have advanced at an exponential rate in the last few years. Rapid development of the 3D printing process has ensured that all the components of the printer need to match these advances.

A critical component part is a linear indexing belt to accurately move the print head in three different axes: X Y & Z. The ability of these belts to position the print head with pinpoint accuracy, determines the quality and finish of the finished printed component.

Megadyne has developed a new product specifically for this application: a thermoplastic polyurethane timing belt with high-tensile steel reinforcement cords.

The belt has an increased top-cover thickness to increase the belt’s stability and protect the reinforcement cords.

The cords themselves have an increased tensile strength, producing minimal elongation during operation.

High levels of acceleration and deceleration are then possible, without a reduction in speed and positional accuracy.

Reduced elongation and belt stability are the key attributes that produce accurate position of the print head. Printed objects with a high degree of dimensional accuracy can then assured.

Megadyne linear belts can be incorporated into all types of 3D printers. From small types used for prototyping and hobbyists, to the largest industrial types currently available. In addition to the linear belt, Megadyne can offer clamping plates to match each belt type and width.

Our History:

The Megadyne Group develops and manufactures power transmission belts, matched components and complete belt systems for any kind of machines. As a reliable partner for original equipment manufacturers and the aftermarket distributors, it has manufacturing plants in Europe, North America and Asia.

1957, Origin: At the end of the 50’s Corrado Tadolini, a man with a lively creativity and intelligence, begins to develop a range of flat rubber drive belts and hence starts his own “corner shop business”. Megadyne is born!

1980’s Polyurethane: The 80’s are a turning point in the company’s development with the advent of polyurethane materials combined with the natural technical / engineering skills of the Tadolini family. They embraced the new technology and developed the moulded and open ended power transmission belts products.

1990’s Worldwide expansion: Megadyne becomes a market leader in the polyurethane belting sector and builds on the success obtained on the Italian market; it starts to develop a network of “sister companies” around Europe which was closely followed by outlets worldwide, from China to Brazil.

2000’s Transmission system: A new millennium brings a new chapter in the Megadyne history. The acquisition of a rubber production facility in Spain (ex Pirelli/Dayco) combined with a pulley production plant near Milan.  This development allows Megadyne to offer the complete drive package in synchronous belt drives, combined with a highly competent technical, production and sales function dedicated to the customers different and challenging needs. The acquisition of Jason Industrial is a key step guaranteeing a solid commercial and productive presence in the Americas. Equally important are the establishment of a polyurethane belt manufacturing plant in Qingdao and the acquisition of Ningbo Rubber Factory, giving Megadyne a powerful productive base in Asia.

2010’s Consolidation: In order to consolidate its market leading position, Megadyne strengthens its efforts to support a substantial organic growth and to scout the market for more strategic acquisitions that would enhance its offering.
