At Hannover Messe 2013 on 8–12 April 2013, Hepcomotion will showcase its range of automation components, subassemblies and turnkey solutions for applications that rely on linear and continuous motion. The company will focus on the PRT2 1-Trak system, which was introduced in 2012.

PRT2 1-Trak has a one-piece construction that reduces system assembly and installation time, as well as associated costs. Its three-bearing carriage design allows complex and asymmetrical tracks to be constructed easily and economically. It can follow almost any conceivable two-dimensional path.

Heocomotion’s ring segment manufacturing capabilities will also be highlighted, with a heavy-duty ring segment available on the stand as an example.

The company will be siutation in Hall 16 on Stand G11.

Further information

  • Hepcomotion can produce ring systems of virtually any size.
  • The company’s process of manufacturing ring segments ensures concentricity and smooth running of the finished product, whatever its diameter.
  • Ring systems greater than 8m in diameter are eminently feasible; single-piece rings are available in diameters of up to 1.8m.
  • Hepcomotion manufactures a choice of driven systems covering applications from low to high loads, at slow to fast speeds, in environments that range from ultra-clean to the most hostile.

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.
