For those looking for the latest developments in food processing and food packaging, Anuga Food Tec in Cologne, Germany is the exhibition of choice. HepcoMotion looks forward to showcasing its products that offer solutions to food processing and food packaging engineers in Hall 8.1, Stand C070.
Food industry applications can be particularly demanding on linear motion components with the need to simultaneously achieve high throughput and withstand harsh environments, while safely handling products which are at risk of contamination. Often, this is a combination not every system can deliver. Hepco products are ideally suited to food processing applications thanks to their V guide technology – a unique wiping action that expels debris from the rail, keeping machines running and reliable. Hepco has been leading the development of V Guide technology since 1969 and continues to develop innovative linear products that offer new solutions to design engineers.
Key products on the stand include the highly-regarded GFX Hepco Guidance for the Beckhoff XTS (eXtended Transport System). This solution utilises Hepco’s PRT2 and 1-Trak guidance systems to work with Beckhoff’s XTS circuit linear system to meet the needs of higher duty XTS applications where motion profiles and long-term durability requirements are particularly demanding. The combination of technologies from market leaders Beckhoff and Hepco provides users with a robust, high production and flexible solution that will revolutionise production processes in many manufacturing applications. This system is ideally suited to a range of applications, such as a variable speed lane divider to sort randomly positioned items into separate lanes, or a double-sided system for a compact application that requires multiple motion profiles.
Hepco will also be showcasing its core V guide linear system: GV3. Designed to serve a diverse range of automation and linear applications, GV3 is durable, reliable, low maintenance and confidently able to work in harsh environments – key attributes needed for food industry applications.
Further products on the stand include the DTS belt driven track system – an ideal choice for a food packaging application requiring high positional accuracy and a demanding duty cycle. DTS is a complete unit ready to be incorporated into a continuous positioning or dedicated assembly machine. The provision of all transmission and mounting components as a complete integrated package means huge savings are made in both design and build time.
With Hepco’s experienced team on hand to discuss applications and product offerings, Hepco looks forward to meeting visitors in Hall 8.1, Stand C070 at Anuga Food in Cologne on the 20th-23rd March 2018.
