Jordan Valley Semiconductors, an X-ray metrology specialist based in Durham, has selected a stainless steel ring segment and bearings from Hepcomotion for its QC-Velox high-resolution XRD system, which is designed for ultra-high-throughput, mass-production operation.

The ring segment is a major component in an orientation axis that, in turn, is part of a multi-axis stage.

The segment was specified with stainless steel bearings, who special raceway conformity and low radial clearance are particularly suitable for ring slide applications.

All elements are standard options within Hepcomotion’s PRT2 range.

Key benefits of product application

  • The stainless steel components were chosen thanks to their ease of integration and their cost efficiency.
  • The corrosion-resistant ring segment supplied to Jordan Valley features hardened V edges to ensure maximum wear resistance.
  • Jordan Valley chose Hepcomotion as its linear motion supplier because it was able to supply a high-quality stainless steel ring segment at an attractive price and in a short timeframe.

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.
