HepcoMotion will be showcasing a selection of its industry leading range of linear motion technology at Motek in Stuttgart, the international trade fair for production and assembly automation, from 9th-12th October. From track systems for robot automation to complete production lines performing multi-assembly tasks, Hepco’s products have been developed to provide designers with a multitude of solutions. Hepco looks forward to welcoming visitors to its stand (Hall 3, Stand 3100).
Key products on the stand include the highly-regarded Hepco GFX guidance for 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. 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 in the medical and scientific industries, 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.
Further products on the stand include 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, electronic and pharmaceutical industries to name but a few.
Catering for a wide variety of production and assembly needs, Hepco also caters for high load capacity (up to 40kN) on a ring and track system. Ring segments combine with straight slides to build open paths or closed circuits. Utilising proven components, HDRT track systems are used extensively as transfer systems for machine tool and automation applications. With little to no maintenance required ring systems are considered in many cases as a cost effective alternative to traditional slewing rings.
Hepco is well know 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 3, stand 3100.Back
