Continuous Motion System
16 January 2013
The new HepcoMotion PRT2 ‘1- Trak’ continuous motion system gives designers complete freedom in 2D bearing track design.
According to the company, it allows every conceivable configuration to be realised, far exceeding the scope of traditional technology that is limited to simple combinations of straight lines and curves.
The system is manufactured from a single piece of material, and provides high levels of strength and accuracy. Resultant systems are seamless and free running with no possibility of misalignment during installation or in service. Smoother, quieter motion is also achieved.
In addition to facilitating a high degree of flexibility in track configuration, the three-bearing geometry, combined with the track shape, ensures that the carriages exhibit zero play. HepcoMotion ‘1- Trak’ circuits can therefore accommodate much tighter bends than is possible with other systems. Stand T36
