  • GV3 A comprehensive linear motion product designed to serve the majority of automation & linear actuator applications, GV3 follows the lead set by the world renowned HepcoMotion Generation II and CM linear guides. The best features from these products are incorporated into a huge range with many new sizes, types, precision grades and options, including the new Floating Bearing feature. The result - a linear motion product which delivers real solutions to suit both application and budget. Mix and match between sizes, types and precision grades gives the most suitable combination for every linear motion application. Typical areas of application include Pick & Place, Automation and Gantry Robots •Twin, Double Row and Slimline Bearings to suit your application •Flat Tracks and Track Rollers for mounting compliance, saving costly alignment time •All guides and Flat Tracks available in 3 grades of precision •Unground areas have an attractive black finish to inhibit corrosion •Removable carriages are accurately set then locked into position •Integrated rack drive and belt drive reduce design time •Floating Bearings - provide axial movement (float) of V guide position

  • HDS2 HepcoMotion® has updated the highly successful heavy duty linear guide system, retaining the best features from the previous system, and incorporating them in a greatly expanded range under the name of HDS2. Many new components have been added including larger bearings, up to 150mm dia with increased load capacity, two sizes of construction beam, single edge v guides and flat track, as well as a range of actuator options. All this, with an option for stainless steel or corrosion resistant components as standard, enables the HDS2 range to offer a solution for most customer's high load applications. •Precision ground, commercial, stainless steel linear guides available •Complete system & linear actuator capability to customers design •Ten Bearing options 64mm - 150mm diameter •System capacity up to 68kN •Spur or helical rack options •Guides and Flat Tracks in one piece up to 4 meters •Unique V bearing wiping action - works well in harsh environments •V Bearing & Track Roller Cap Wipers •Beams and components ideal for gantry use

  • PRT2 The all-New PRT2 product from HepcoMotion, the originators of the Ring and Track concept, offers the user an exceptional range of options and new sizes. The new extensive easy to use catalogue presents two products in one, designed to solve rotary and continuous motion problems - Ring Slides for rotary or part circular movement and Track Systems for combined linear and rotary motion applications. These products are unique in the combination of accuracy, capacity and design flexibility they provide, proven in thousands of applications throughout many international markets. Key Features: •Circular motion control at the periphery •Friction-free/Zero play motion •Extensive range of Ring diameters up to 1501mm as standard •Double edge, single edge and Ring Discs versions •Simple and effective means of lubrication •Floating Bearing - axial movement of V position •Track System allows variety of circuits •High load support option at work station

  • SBD Sealed Belt driven units, offered in standard and clean room configurations, come in three basic sizes, plus the addition of a New "High Stiffness" version, providing a higher level of performance in terms of load capacity and life than other comparable sized systems. At the heart of the units are HepcoMotion's high capacity LBG recirculating ball guides providing improved moment load capacity and longer life in high duty cycle applications. Sealing is provided by a very effective stainless steel band running along the length of the beam and kept in contact by a magnetic strip. This arrangement will prevent the ingress of dirt and debris. The clean room version has a slightly modified sealing arrangement and with pre tapped vacuum connection holes is certified to EN ISO 14664-1. In order to cope with the extra high duty expected of these units, generously sized polyurethane steel reinforced belts are used in both sizes. Servo or AC motors can be easily fitted using the range of coupling methods on offer, making the SBD an easy product to incorporate into your machine design requirements. •Three sizes, compact in construction SBD15-60, SBD20-80 and SBD30-100, 80 and 100 relate to the width of the beam. •New SBD30-100XL "High Stiffnes" version, benificial in systems with high loads and wide spans. Stiffness of the SBD30-100XL is 104% higher than the standard version in the L1 condition. •Linear guide and belt are housed in a high strength aluminium beam fitted with a flush metal cover strip, beam lengths up to 6m as standard longer units can be constructed by joining •Metal cover strip runs the entire length of the beam and prevents the ingress of dirt and debris into the system •SBD is offered in a standard version and a clean room compatible version •Belt tensioning is set at manufacture but should adjustments be required it is a quick and simple process through tensioning screws externally located at the idle end box •Drive End box is available with either an output shaft, or a bored drive pulley where greater mounting compactness is required •The mounting carriage plate is removable for customising and incorporates an integral switch cam, which can be mounted for left or right hand switching •Clean room versions are certified by the Fraunhöfer Inst for clean room compatibility •Caged and silent range combines both higher loads with quiet and smooth movement •Uses Caged and Silent type re-circulating linear ball guides


    From placing precision components and fine assembly processes
    to transporting heavy components between machine tools, we
    have the products and manufacturing resources to engineer a
    cost effective solution.

  • PRT2 1-TRAK

    HepcoMotion® launches new rotary and continuous motion system

    HepcoMotion® will be showing the new PRT2 1-Trak rotary track system at this years Industrie Lyon Exhibition. This innovative product is a one-piece construction, a key feature that significantly reduces system assembly and installation time and associated costs. As the whole track configuration is manufactured from a single piece of material, there are no joints between straight and curved sections so the system is completely seamless and free running with no possibility of misalignment during installation or in service.

    1-Trak enables highly complex and asymmetrical track circuits to be created that were previously beyond the scope of standard rotary and curvi-linear track systems. The unique three-bearing carriage design allows the track system to follow almost any conceivable two-dimensional path.

  • HepcoMotion acquires automation specialist Severn Automation

    HepcoMotion, world leaders in linear motion, have acquired automation specialist Severn Automation.

    The new operation will trade as HepcoAutomation, retaining Severn’s existing staff and premises in Telford, Shropshire. Severn have built up a fine reputation for innovative automation solutions and excellent customer service, not just in the Telford area but across the UK.

    HepcoMotion have been working closely with Severn for over 18 months. In that time customers have experienced the benefits of the close integration between the two companies. With a flexible approach to solving customers’ problems manufacturing organisations will be able to obtain automation systems that provide real value for money.

    “With our long established experience in linear motion and Severn’s undoubted motion control expertise, we will be able to satisfy a much broader range of customers’ requirements” says HepcoMotion’s Sales Director Christopher Rees.

    The new operation will have considerably more manufacturing capacity with the ability to utilise Hepco’s main manufacturing plant in Tiverton Devon for the construction of certain machine elements.

    Mark Bragg, previous part owner of Severn Automation will be the General Manager of the new operation and will support the sales effort working closely with Hepco’s nationwide network of Sales Engineers. Mark comments

    “We are looking forward to an exciting future working as part of Hepco and the possibilities this new venture will bring, the work that Severn Automation undertakes is a perfect match for Hepco and its range of linear products. Now as HepcoAutomation we can now give the customer the option of a complete turnkey solution from design concept to completion”

    Such has been the smooth transition to the new organisation that orders are already being taken for HepcoAutomation.
