HepcoMotion will be showcasing a selection of its range of linear motion products at Southern Manufacturing on the 6–8 February at FIVE, Farnborough, Hampshire. 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 options. Hepco looks forward to welcoming visitors to its stand (G230).

Key products on the stand include the GFX Hepco Guidance for the Beckhoff XTS (eXtended Transport System). This product 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 Beckhoff and Hepco provides users with a robust, high production and flexible system that will improve production processes in many manufacturing applications. This system is well 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.

Visitors will be able to see the popular SBD Sealed Belt Drive in action, a product that has certainly carved a niche for itself in high-duty applications. SBD provides a higher level of performance in terms of load capacity and demanding duty cycles than other comparable sized linear actuators.

Suitable for a wide variety of production and assembly needs, Hepco also caters for high load capacities (up to 68,000N) with its HDS2 heavy duty linear motion system. This stainless steel linear guide can be configured for gantry systems and is available as an assembled system (reducing design and setting time) or in component form.

Hepco is well known for its V guide technology – a 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 options to design engineers.

With Hepco’s experienced team on hand to discuss applications and product offerings, Hepco looks forward to meeting visitors on Stand G230 at Southern Manufacturing on the 6–8 February. Learn more at
