Now available as an option for all its core linear motion products, HepcoMotion has introduced its Bleed Lubrication System.
It provides constant lubrication to the slide vee face via specially machined pathways which are connected to an external supply via lubrication inserts.
Lubrication is delivered directly to the vee face and, in turn, it is picked up by the carriage and bearings as they pass over each lubrication exit point. In this way lubricant is carried around the entire system, ensuring an even distribution.
This new HepcoMotion system also saves on the number of lubricators or cap seals normally fitted to each carriage, thereby reducing system friction and associated cost, as it is the slide that is responsible for delivering the lubricant to where it is needed.
