Continuous motion moves forward

HepcoMotion's new Precision Ring Track PRT2 system comprises a comprehensive range of ring slides, ring segments, bearings and ancillary components to suit the majority of rotary and track system applications.

It introduces a substantially expanded range of sizes, with the added benefit of across the range load capacities being increased by a typical 50% or more, and includes stainless steel availability as standard.

This friction-free, debris-tolerant system also adds several new options that allow innovative and highly reliable technical solutions to be engineered. The extended choice of ring slide types – double-edged, single edged, internal/external Vees, gear cut or plain – is available in various diameters in both steel and stainless steel with hardened Vee edges for maximum wear resistance. They provide circular motion control at the periphery where it is needed and a large hollow centre to accommodate other components, services and even people in the case of an MRI scanner.

Track systems combine ring segments and straight slides to achieve an almost limitless variation of open paths and closed circuits. Both left and right hand bends can be negotiated depending on the carriage selected.
