Hepcomotion has extended its PRT2 range with a series of moment load carriages designed to provide extra support and rigidity for high, dynamic or static offset loads typically seen at the workstation position of a production line. 

The carriages are offered in two configurations — a static type and a dynamic option — both of which connect to the track system support beam.

The static-type carriage is designed to take an additional load while in a ‘static’ or stationary position. The carriage is supported when it makes contact with a pair of eccentrically adjustable roller bearings, fitted to the framework of the track system.

The dynamic option provides continuous support to the carriage around the entire track while the load is moving. In this case, the carriage is fitted with eccentric roller bearings that can be adjusted to make contact with a support track following the main Vee Guide circuit. 

Key information

  • The moment load carriages are available in a range of sizes, including an extra-wide carriage option.
  • They can be supplied complete with a carriage locking system for positive location within ±50 microns.
  • The carriages can also be used in straight-line linear applications in conjunction with GV3 components.

Designing a unique engineering principle and making it a commercial success is quite an accomplishment.  Developing that concept and embracing complementary technologies to the point where the business becomes a world leader in its field takes that achievement into a different league.  HepcoMotion has achieved both and in 2009 celebrates 40th year of trading.   

Today HepcoMotion is one of the world’s foremost innovators and manufacturers of linear motion technology.  And this can be attributed to the important tenet – continued investment in its people processes and products.  This has allowed the company to grow even at times of economical difficulty.  

Although its range of individual, linear motion products remains an important part of its business the growth area for HepcoMotion in recent years is in specials and assemblies.  Almost one fifth of its shop floor space is devoted to assembly and the company has invested heavily in flexible manufacturing to ensure that even last minute changes can be accommodated to customer specification.  

Constantly re-assessing its strengths against changing market demands continues to provide HepcoMotion with the momentum for business growth.  The culture of ongoing investment has certainly worked well throughout its first 40 years and will continue to underpin its business in the decades to come.
