HepcoMotion will be showcasing a selection of its range of linear motion technology at PPMA Show 2017. Demonstrating the depth of its product ranges suited to designers of processing and packaging machinery, Hepco looks forward to welcoming visitors to its stand (F60, hall 5).
Hepco provides an array of high-speed and accurate products useful for the processing and packaging industries. Key products on the stand include the highly regarded GFX Hepco Guidance System for 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 market leaders Beckhoff and Hepco provides users with a robust, high production and flexible option that will revolutionise 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.
Hepco will also be showcasing its core V guide linear system: GV3. GV3 is designed to serve a diverse range of automation and linear applications and is widely used in the packing industry for applications such as a telescopic pick and place gantry, transport system or multi-lane row divider to name but a few. Highly accurate, GV3 is particularly suitable for high-precision applications, or any application where accuracy is paramount. One of the quietest linear systems on the market, GV3 offers high speeds of up to 8m per second.
Further products on the stand include the DTS belt driven track system – a good choice for a food or packaging application that requires high positional accuracy and a demanding duty cycle. DTS is a complete unit ready to be incorporated into a continuous positioning or dedicated assembly machine. The provision of all transmission and mounting components as a complete integrated package means huge savings are made in both design and build time.
After receiving the prestigious PPMA Business, Education, Skills and Training Award (BEST) last year for its apprenticeship programme, Hepco is pleased to enter one of its apprentices for the apprentice of the year award. Engineering apprentice Toby Cowan will find out the results at the PPMA Group Industry awards gala dinner on Tuesday 26th September.
With Hepco’s experienced team on hand to discuss applications and product offerings, Hepco looks forward to meeting visitors in hall 5, stand F60. PPMA Show runs from 26th-28th September at the NEC, Birmingham. For further information please visit www.hepcomotion.com.
