HepcoMotion - Industry Solutions | Automotive

Design Engineers in the Automotive Industry demand products that are low maintenance, reliable, and will stand up to 24/7 working without failing.

The conditions can be hostile, especially in the field of component manufacture such as brake pad production where dust ingresses the linear system.

The range of V based linear motion systems available from Hepco have load capacities from a few kg to many tonnes and are all tried and tested under such demanding conditions.

Whether you require an XZ gantry system to handle gearboxes or a manual fixture to assemble car doors, the maintenance manual for the guidance systems will not need to be referred to many times.
