SBD Sealed Belt Drive
RIGID, SEALED LINEAR DRIVE GUIDES EXTRACTION SYSTEM ON A DIAMOND LATHEMORE
With the need to equip its Ultra-Precision diamond lathe with an effective swarf extraction system, the Ultra-Precision Structured Surfaces (UPS2) Department at Cranfield University sought the help of Glyndwr Innovations. The result was the development of a bespoke, stand alone system whose extraction head is guided by a HepcoMotion® Sealed Belt Driven linear actuator (SBD), specified for its accuracy, rigidity and suitability for use in hostile environments.
Fully-Inflated Life Raft Deployed by Sealed Belt DriveMORE
Thanks to the expertise of Ayrshire-based Emergency One, the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service now operates a purpose-designed and award-winning specialist rescue unit (SRU) that is unique. What makes this vehicle design so special is its stowage of a vast range of dedicated equipment including a fully-inflated boat for water rescue, positioned on a trailer for quick off-load.
Capital Investments Support Business GrowthMORE
HepcoMotion® confirms that its linear motion business is positively booming. The first trading quarter of 2011 was the company’s best ever, growth that has now prompted over £1.5m investment in capital equipment to absorb increased demand.
STIFFER BEAMED, SEALED BELT ACTUATORMORE
Technology leader, HepcoMotion®, has introduced a new addition to its Sealed Belt Drive (SBD) linear motion product programme that is ideal for systems whose main credentials are high loads and long spans. In essence the new SBD 30-100XL is 2.5 times stiffer than its standard counterpart and has greater load bearing capabilities.
SEALED LINEAR ACTUATOR FOR SMALL & COMPACT SYSTEMSMORE
The HepcoMotion® SBD Sealed Belt Drive has certainly carved a niche for itself in high duty applications. It has proved to be more than equal to the high loads and demanding duty cycles that often compromise the operating efficiency and life of other linear actuators.
