Move products from station to station in a precise, repeatable and controlled manner.
Work is guided dynamically around closed route cells, controlling the path of components throughout the production process.
DTS systems rationalise linear processes into one continuous closed loop.
The open centre enables equipment to be placed inside and outside of the track system.
Driven by high-strength steel reinforced timing belts or scroll drives.
High speeds, and accelerations provide greater productivity from your machines.
A locking option aligns carriages to within a +/- 0.05 mm repeatable position around the circuit.
Products are then rigidly held in position during processing, enabling consistent quality of throughput.
Hepco’s high strength, hardwearing V-Guide technology, providing smooth and low-friction linear motion.
Ridgely held carriages resist deflection from external forces, guiding components through the production process.
DTS systems are built according to your exact requirements.
Oval, square and rectangular shapes can be designed as standard, and systems work in any orientation.
Hepco’s V guide system is well suited to harsh environments thanks to its unique wiping action that expels debris.
Dirt is expelled from the bearing during motion, wiping the V guide clean and creating an ideal solution for contaminated environments.
Automated lubrication is pumped directly to the contact surfaces of the track system.
This enables extended periods of operation without the need to stop for re-lubrication, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
Many modern process lines are less linear than its predecessors. David explains why driven track systems are so well suited for the next generation of process lines.
Automated production cells are now a fundamental part of manufacturing, especially as businesses pursue higher throughput and lower overheads in today’s turbo charged production culture.
In order to meet high demands for the latest smart phones or laptops, production in the electronics industry must move at breathtaking speeds, still being precise and accurate enough to achieve repeatability and consistent high quality.
