HepcoMotion will be on Stand F10 in Hall 16 at the 2011 Hannover Fair. One of the highlights on the stand will be the Precision Ring Track PRT2, a recently launched circular and continuous motion product programme with an extensive scope and breadth of applications. It is said to provide an exceptional choice of components and sizes, many of which are available ex-stock.
In fact the PRT2 system has 45 per cent more elements than the previous generation ring-and-track system. And, as with all HepcoMotion products, stainless steel availability is standard. The range enables a limitless variation of open paths and closed circuits to be created, all highly reliable and requiring only minimal maintenance.
This friction-free, debris-tolerant and wear-resistant system also adds several new options that enables innovative motion control systems to be engineered. These include single- and double-edged slides, a large precision ground turntable, high moment load carriages, and bogie carriages for negotiation of 'S' bends.
All the products in the HepcoMotion linear actuator range will be featured at Hannover. For customers requiring a standalone unit that is belt-, screw- or pneumatically-operated, the range covers all applications from low to high load, and low to high speed. Where precise positioning is required, ball screw drives can be specified; and where corrosion resistance and hygienic operation are prerequisites, HepcoMotion offers stainless steel components.
In partnership with motion control specialist SmartDrive, HepcoMotion also provides linear motion systems, complete with drives and controls. The companies have worked together since 2003, satisfying a wide variety of application needs in diverse industries throughout Europe.
