For any machine builder, system designer or manufacturer seeking simple and effective automation, the HepcoMotion® range of linear motion products provide unmatched choice.  The company can supply a simple ex-stock component right through to custom designs and multi-axis systems complete with motion control.

One of the key benefits of the HepcoMotion® product programme for those involved in food and beverage processing is that stainless steel is a standard choice.  It is not priced as a ‘special’ and not subject to long lead times.  Furthermore HepcoMotion® provides a range of stainless steel and corrosion resistant elements that can be mixed and matched so that the optimum combination of hygiene, wear and performance can be achieved.

Within the scope of the corrosion resistant range, new products will feature too. One example is the HepcoMotion® ALR aluminium rings. Circular motion is a field in which the company has considerable expertise and a wide product range.  This introduction broadens the scope of its rotary movement to include medium precision, light duty applications.

Bishop-Wisecarver DualVee polymer over-moulded guide wheels with integral studs make a significant contribution to the ring’s virtually noiseless operation.  They run exceptionally smoothly with little friction or wear on the ring vees.  All metal parts are stainless steel and the shielded wheel bearings are lubricated for life.

The ALR rings themselves are machined from high strength aluminium alloy and are anodised to a specification which gives an excellent combination of durability and corrosion resistance.  The finish is attractive too and provides an ideal running surface for the DualVee polymer wheels.

DualVee Motion Technology® (DMT) has been an integral part of the HepcoMotion® product range for many years and continues to prove a popular choice for anti-friction guidance mechanisms typically in pick-and-place units and packaging machinery that do not require the high precision provided by the HepcoMotion® GV3 system.

To provide a stable platform for higher load carrying capacity, DMT elements can also be used to create a wide-span linear motion system.  In a matter of minutes a broad based, low profile and higher capacity system can be created with the inherent DMT performance benefits of smooth and quiet operation.
