HepcoMotion's linear and rotary motion products at MACH 2012For the first time, HepcoMotion will be taking two stands at MACH 2012; the first is showcasing its advanced linear and rotary motion products and the exhibits will include the company’s new Timing Belt Rings. The second stand focuses on machine building and automation and will feature a further two new products: RapiLok No-Drill Connectors for its Machine Construction System (MCS) and the Linear Measuring Indicator.

As a manufacturer itself, HepcoMotion understands the needs of the production engineering environment. This insight informs the development of its rotary, linear and continuous motion products, and there will be a good selection of these products appearing at MACH 2012. They include the flagship GV3 Precision Linear Motion and Transmission System and the Driven Track System (DTS). HepcoMotion SBD Sealed Belt-Driven Linear Actuators will be demonstrated on single and multi axis systems and the SDM Screw Driven Module will be shown in two sizes.

HepcoMotion has proven proficiency in the field of heavy duty automation and are showing a range of components for use in arduous, high-load pick and place gantry applications. The company is also a technology leader in rotary motion with its comprehensive PRT2 Precision Ring and Track System that allows ring tracks and continuous motion circuits of limitless size and variation to be built.

In line with its continuous development policy, HepcoMotion has added a range of ring slides that have been modified with a timing pulley profile. These will make their exhibition debut at MACH 2012. The HepcoMotion design has a self-aligning V-groove in the pulley which eliminates the need for flanges and the entire assembly provides many performance benefits. High driving force and speed – up to 5m/s at the periphery – are complemented by accuracy and low backlash. Requiring no lubrication or re-tensioning, these new additions also run very quietly.

Second stand, two new products

The HepcoMotion exhibits under the banner “Machine Building and Automation Solutions” include the widely used Winkel High-Load Guide System and Zimm Screw Jacks. Also a longstanding mainstay of this range is the MCS Machine Construction System which will, for the first time, be shown with new RapiLok No-Drill Connectors that enable quick and easy profile connection. Also demonstrated will be the ease in which HepcoMotion GV3 linear slides can be mounted to MCS machine structures.

These products enable a significant reduction in assembly time and associated costs. Neater and aesthetically more appealing than the conventional drilled fixing option, RapiLok is cost effective, efficient and also brings the benefit of reduced inventory.

Another new system at MACH 2012 is the HepcoMotion Linear Measuring Indicator (LMI). In addition to providing precise length measurement, with the ability to be matched with HepcoMotion GV3 slides, this easy-to-install, compact product can also be adapted for rotary applications where angular measurement is required. Versatile and economical, LMI offers repeatable, precise measurement to improve productivity and reduce rejects in many industrial applications.
