- MHD has been specifically designed to transport robots
and heavy automation equipment along a linear track to perform assembly
operations in the automotive and heavy mechanical handling industries.
Suitable for high speed operation oup to 6 m/s MHD has a block capacity of 5
tonnes which will lend itself to many applications where high offset loads
are seen in heaby automation applications where durability and long life is
The track incorporates a rack drive allowing high driving forces to be
applied to cover the wide range of load and speed requirements, which the
system has to operate under. Blocks are low maintenance with a high capacity
taper roller bearing in the most heaviest loaded direction.
Winkel High Load Combined Bearing System
- Individual components or multi-axis handling systems
built to your exact specification. Winkel systems are ideal for heavy-duty
applications that have very high radial and axial loads. Individual
linear/rotary bearings can sustain loads of up to 140 kN. Equally robust are
the U or I section rails available in 20 sizes up to 12m long. Fully
assembled handling systems with a range of drive systems are suitable for
loads up to 50 tonnes.
Pacific Simplicity Linear/Rotary Bearing
- Pacific Simplicity™ bearings were developed in response
to requests from major U.S ball bushing users - they wanted a maintenance
free bearing that simply would not fail. Dirt, vibration, shock loading and
water washdowns were causing premature failure, often within days. The
resulting Simplicity™ design features a Frelon® self-lubricating liner
material securely bonded into the housing, giving the ability to operate in
all types of environment - even under seawater!
The pacific range is interchangeable with many existing ball bushings, being
available in Metric, Japanese Metric and Imperial sizes. A wide variety of
bearing housings are offered, including flange mountings and Pacific's
patented self-aligning pillow blocks. Shafts used can be either standard
hardened/ground or soft 300 series stainless if the application requires - a
truly versatile bearing.
Mini Rail Miniature Linear Guides
- Based on Pacific Bearing company's proven Simplicity™
technology Mini Rail miniature linear guides provide an interchangeable
alternative to recirculating guideways in 5 useful sizes. The self
lubricating design requires no sealing and will work in extreme temperature
conditions and in environments which would bring early failure to
recirculating guides. Available in 3 grades Mini Rail is the cost effective
solution where reliability is paramount.
Dolphin Guides Rigid Aluminium Guides
- Dolphin Guides are the ready made solution where a wide
but compact system is required. The one piece construction guideway is

phenomenal performance by providing a range of hard or soft shafts, with
various machining options available.
ASK Ball Bushing Units
- The benefits of ball bushings are well known. This range
of ball bushings combines competitive prices with uncompromised quality
whether in standard sizes or long series for increased rigidity. Bushings
with housings and machined datum faces provide reduced engineering
solutions. Flanged housings solve offset load problem, which cause increased
design and assembly time.
LBG Linear Ball Guides
- A comprehensive range of linear ball guides covering the
more popular sizes and types interchangeable with the Industry standard.
High quality, good accuracy with exceptional rigidity Linear Ball Guides
from HepcoMotion are designed around a four row ball angular contact concept

differential slip together with good system compliance. A stock range is
available which will suit most automation requirements, however, a whole
combination of preloads and grades can be supplied to suit individual
SH Shock Absorbers
- The ideal complement to HepcoMotion's linear guidance
systems, SH Shock Absorbers will eliminate all damaging impact forces
created by moving loads and objects. Since energy is dissipated at a uniform
rate, moving objects are brought to rest far faster than with other damping
methods. In addition to excellent performance where shock absorption is
required as if the norm, SH units are a cost-effective machine protection
method in case of control system failure.
LMI Linear Measuring Indicator

or where two components need to be brought together underneath the unit for
assembly purposes. The Double Acting Profile Driven Unit uses the same low
maintenance Herculane® wheels as incorporated in the standard PDU2 product
so low maintenance is assured. It is usual to fit two carriages per side for
most door applications, carriages are linked with a toothed belt and move
symmetrically with simple belt adjustment effected from the end of the unit.

aluminium beam and benefiting from the zero maintenance vee-guide linear
slides, proven in the harshest environments, HDLS is a ready to fit solution
to your bespoke needs.
HDCS Heavy Duty Compact Screw
- The Heavy Duty Compact Screw unit uses the same high
strength aluminium beam as used in the HDCB. The curved section of the beam
allows the fitting of the ballscrew with the minimum of space and the
general low height of the product gives an overall impression of
compactness. This unit can be used as a stand alone X axis or as a Z axis
with the beam the moving element, the fixing of grippers to the end is very
easily accommodated. The slides fitted are the Heavy Duty single edge type
with either 64mm or 95mm dia bearings depending upon capacity requirements.
Slide lubrication is provided by low maintenance cap wipers with a
relubrication point provided for the ballscrew. Fitted ballscrew is 25mm dia
either 5mm or 10mm pitch and the whole unit can be provided with a bellows
cover if necessary.
PSD Screw Driven Linear Actuator
- The PSD screw driven linear actuator range has been
extended and now offers two sizes 80mm & 120mm. The new PSD80 is available
as standard with a stainless steel lead screw in a range of screw pitches
and complements the precision ball screw offering within PSD120.
The Hepco Herculane® linear guidance technology used in PSD is the same as
used in our PDU2 belt driven product. The PSD actuator can be used as a
single or multi axis unit and is particularly useful in Z-axis applications.
The screw drive and linear motion guide is housed in a strong aluminium beam
protected by a stainless steel cover strip which runs the entire length of
These cost-effective actuators are available in lengths up to 2850mm (6000mm
for slave units) and can be specified in open, closed, double acting or
SBD Sealed Belt Drive
- 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.

lengths of our hardened steel track to a low profile milled aluminium track
plate. The Veeways are pre-alligned and parallel to within .002in (0.05mm).
Track plate is available in single piece lengths up to 10 feet (3m), but are
routinely butt-joined with a staggered track arrangement for long custom
SDM Screw Driven Module
- HepcoMotion have extended the availability of the sealed
driven units, made popular by the belt driven SBD range, and added a new
Ballscrew driven product to its family of Linear Actuators. The SDM screw
driven module incorporates the key features of the SBD range and allows for
improved stiffness and precision. 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. The sealing on the new SDM units have been
further enhanced with an upgraded linear contact seal, which reduces
friction, wear and noise.

measurement system has no wearing parts and offers long trouble-free life.
Predominately LMI is a linear measuring indicator devise, which has
applications in a whole host of machine building, pick and place and system
automation applications. However, due to the highly flexible tape the LMI
system can be used very successfully on cylindrical surfaces in applications
such as turntables where angular measurement is required.
In rotary applications the LMI system can be used very successfully in
conjunction with HepcoMotion PRT2 and HDRT ring based products. (See Rotary
& Continuous Motion products)
