Hepcomotion has launched the LBG brake option, which provides a compact and easy method of locking a bearing block in position on its LBG linear ball guide.

Stainless steel bodied for non-corrosion, the brake is intended for manual locking of a stationary block and can be supplied with a range of brake plates to suit most of the LBG bearing block options.

The break assembly has two jaws that, when tightened via the ratchet locking lever, apply equal pressure to the LBG rail to ensure even clamping.

When the brake is applied, the resulting clamping force does not impose any load on the bearing block.

Although designed principally to extend the capability of Hepcomotion LBG linear ball guides, the brake is compatible with all other ball guide systems with which the LBG system is interchangeable.

Brakes in sizes 15 through 30 are available ex-stock via the Hepcomotion e-shop in combination with most popular guide sizes to suit most automation requirements.

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.
