The new Precision Ring Track PRT2 from Hepcomotion will be a main feature at Midlands Design and Manufacturing 2011, which will take place on 6-7 April 2011.

The PRT2 comprises ring slides, ring segments, bearings and ancillary components to suit the majority of rotary and track-system applications, and introduces a substantially expanded range of sizes.

The added benefit across the range is increased load capacities, typically by 50 per cent or more.

PRT2 also extends customer choice by 45 per cent.

This friction-free, debris-tolerant system adds several new options that allow reliable technical solutions to be engineered.

These include a choice of ring-slide types in various diameters in steel or stainless steel with hardened V edges for maximum wear resistance.

HepcoMotion also has many standard design solutions to suit a variety of applications, from fully automated pick and place to manual assembly.

Common products used are its GV3 linear motion system and HD heavy duty.

For the customer that requires a standalone unit – either belt, screw or pneumatically operated, the Hepcomotion driven range covers all applications from low to high load and slow to fast speed.

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.
