Hostile environment linear motion from Hepcomotion®

Written by: HepcoMotion | Published:

Bishop Wisecarver's DualVee Motion Technology™ from HepcoMotion is a popular anti-friction linear guidance mechanism and its scope has just been extended. The new Swaged Integral Studded Wheel range increases the ability of DualVee to withstand hostile and tough environments.

Bishop Wisecarver DualVee Motion Technology™ - DMT - has been successfully employed in industrial linear guidance applications for 60 years. As an integral part of the HepcoMotion® product programme, it has proved a popular choice for anti-friction guidance mechanisms, typically in pick-and-place units and packaging machinery that do not require the ultra-high precision offered by the HepcoMotion® GV3 System.

Over the years DualVee technology has extended its scope of application thanks to the company's regular introduction of new components that meet the needs of specific applications. The latest is an addition to its Integral Studded Wheel range that increases the ability of DualVee to withstand hostile and tough environments.

Manufactured in four sizes, the new DualVee Swaged Integral Studded Wheels are available in concentric and eccentric designs. They may be specified in stainless steel for corrosive environments or for washdown conditions in food and beverage applications. Versions are also stocked for low or high temperature applications; custom greases may also be requested.

In common with the standard, single piece DualVee Integral Studded Wheels, the swaged versions have the same low profile design and large threads that provide greater rigidity and increased mounting torque capability. They are also interchangeable so existing applications can take advantage of the new swaged option.

The new DualVee additions are supplied in short lead times and there is no minimum quantity stipulated. Custom stud lengths can also be supplied on request.
