New linear guide system

New linear guide system When a product is introduced as being higher precision it inevitably comes at a premium price. The latest introduction from HepcoMotion, however, is the exception that proves the rule. New UtiliTrak is not only a better quality linear guideway system than its predecessor, it is also easier to install and therefore a product that will benefit a wide range of applications. The higher precision has been achieved by the replacement of the original composite rail with a one-piece carbon steel rail that is both hardened and ground to provide the internal vee running surface. The economies of manufacture however have allowed this product to be highly competitively priced and this benefit is complemented by several new features. The first is a choice of carriage plates. In addition to the standard three-wheeled version, four- and five-wheeled carriage plates are also available allowing higher loads to be accommodated. This increased load carrying capability requires no additional design space as the carriage plate is simply longer, not wider. UtiliTrak is also very quick to install especially when two systems are used in parallel.
