Flexible heavy duty linear motion – from hepcomotion

Written by: Hepcomotion | Published:

With system capacities up to 68kN the new Heavy Duty Slide System HDS2 from HepcoMotion® provides the load and life requirements for arduous applications. Technically superior to its forerunner HDS2 has a greatly expanded range of components including those that reduce the engineering time required to get the system operational.


With system capacities up to 68kN, the new Heavy Duty Slide System HDS2 from HepcoMotion® has been engineered to provide an exceptionally rugged product to meet increased load and life requirements. In so doing it addresses new markets in heavy materials handling that involve much larger X-Z gantry systems.

HDS2 has retained the best features of its forerunner and incorporated them in a considerably expanded and technically superior range. An important aspect of this is the introduction of specific components that reduce the engineering time required to get the system up and running.

These components include larger bearings with increased load capacity of up to 50kN. There are three sizes of construction beam up to 4m long, single edge V slides and flat tracks as well as various drive options. All this, with an option for stainless steel or corrosion resistant components as standard enables HDS2 to satisfy most high load application needs.

HDS2 can be supplied in component form or as a ready mounted assembly complete with rack driven carriages. Customers can also choose from low cost commercial slides for general use or high precision ground slides for applications where superior accuracy and greater smoothness are pre-requisites.

In addition to providing higher load capacity, double row bearings are exceptionally tolerant of debris. Low friction cap wipers expel dirt in harsh environments and provide automatic lubrication for a long service life.

Greater driving forces for heavier loads are achieved through a range of spur or helical rack and pinion options. The helical racks are ideal for applications that require a smoother transition of the driving force and consequently are quieter. The engineering package is complemented by a range of rack driven carriages, complete with automatic lubrication facility, with helical bevel gearboxes that can be driven by AC or servo motor.
