Hepco’s newest demonstration unit – the much-anticipated HepcoMotion guidance for Beckhoff XTS (eXtended Transport System), was the highlight of its presence at Southern Manufacturing 2016. This solution 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 is, says the firms, sure to provide users with a robust, high production and flexible solution that will revolutionise production processes in many manufacturing applications. Visitors to the stand were able to see the new system in action.
Further key products on the stand included the DTS2 driven track system –designed for applications that require high positional accuracy and a demanding duty cycle. Visitors also saw the long life PDU2 linear actuator and space saving PSD80 screw driven actuator. Hepco’s core GV3 Linear Motion System that is designed to serve a diverse range of automation and linear applications was also on the stand.
HepcoMotion originated the V guide system now used worldwide for the control of linear, rotary and continuous motion, and continues to develop innovative linear products that offer new solutions to design engineers. Hepco offers over forty-two major product lines with thousands of individual components in various sizes. With branches and distributors in 41 countries, the firm provides extensive application support through a global network of qualified, experienced and factory trained engineers backed up by a substantial and experienced manufacturing capability.
