Hepcomotion’s PRT2 precision ring track system, which is claimed to be friction free and debris tolerant, introduces an expanded range of sizes and includes stainless-steel elements as standard.

Now, it has been voted Product of the Year 2010 in a contest founded and co-ordinated by TMI Poland, the publisher of the industrial magazines Production Centre Engineering and Maintenance and Control Engineering Poland.

PRT2 was submitted for the judges’ consideration by the Hepcomotion Polish distributor and linear motion specialist, Albeco.

It was evaluated for its practical application and benefits, ease of use and innovation by a panel of eminent academics and industry leaders and was awarded top prize in the Mechanics Category.

Albeco accepted this Product of the Year 2010 award at a ceremony held on 17 March 2011 in the Staszic Palace in Warsaw, the seat of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

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.
