Machine tools, manufacturing and automation are core focuses at EMO Hannover in Germany, the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector. Guidance systems are therefore a key area of interest at this exhibition; rest assured that HepcoMotion, a specialist in linear guidance systems, will of course, be attending EMO Hannover. Demonstrating the depth of its product ranges ideally suited to industrial automation, Hepco looks forward to welcoming visitors to its stand (hall 6, stand L59).
Key products on the stand include Hepco’s core V guide linear system: GV3. GV3 is designed to serve a diverse range of automation and linear applications and is suitable for a wide variety of environments from clean rooms to hostile conditions. Highly accurate, GV3 is particularly suitable for high precision applications or any application where accuracy is paramount. One of the quietest linear systems on the market, GV3 offers high speeds of up to eight meters per second.
HepcoMotion will also be showcasing the DTS2 driven track system – an ideal choice for any application that requires high positional accuracy and a demanding duty cycle. Widely used to facilitate high speed automation of assembly processes, the DTS2 is popular in a number of industries including the packaging, automotive and electronic industries to name but a few.
Hepco’s highly original 1-Trak continuous motion system will also be on the stand. 1-Trak gives designers complete freedom in 2D bearing track design – a necessity for some challenging applications. Perfect where space is important, 1-Trak enables tight track return curves to be achieved and can be customised to fit an existing machine. 1-Trak can achieve track designs that were previously perceived to be too expensive or not feasible.
Actuators are also a key product for those working in production technologies; Hepco will be showcasing its DAPDU2 dual action linear actuator and SBD belt driven actuator at EMO Hannover. DAPDU2 provides a low maintenance solution for applications to close doors or where two components need to be brought together underneath the unit for assembly purposes. This linear actuator boasts speed, and low friction surpassing that of comparable actuators.
Hepco’s SBD actuator offers high accuracy and rigidity – crucial benefits for applications requiring precision. SBD is particularly well suited to the metalworking sector as it offers improved moment load capacity and longer life in high duty linear applications.
Hepco is well known for its 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.
With Hepco’s experienced team on hand to discuss applications and product offerings, Hepco looks forward to meeting visitors in Hall 6, Stand L59 at EMO Hannover, Germany on the 18th – 23rd September 2017.
