Hepco builds on linear lineage

Devon-based linear motion expert Hepco has introduced a slide system which it believes is its most ambitious development to date. Expected to form 70% of the company’s sales, the GV3 system incorporates the features of the Generation II and CM slide systems, and combines this with, what Hepco claims, is an unrivalled range of options on size, precision, bearing assembly, lubrication and type of carriage. With upwards of 100 different slides, carriages and carriage plates, and a CNC production centre capable of machining small numbers of parts, Hepco claims that it is able to offer a custom made solution for your application within seven to eight days.
